What the Experts Say

LA Times, 2003: “…The supercharger boost comes on at about 2,500 rpm and then thing goes off like a Waring blender… yanking the car and its rubber-necked passengers to the rpm redline in each gear. The car is bleeding mad with torque from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm (peak torque is 1777 pound-feet at 4,000 rpm) which means that with a well-chosen gear in hand, the nearly 2,700 pound car has a wicked punch.”

Yahoo, UK Car Review, 2005: “The Works Cooper S is not a car for the faint-hearted. It is built, or rather, crafted, for the out-and-out enthusiast… It yields mile-after-mile of utter satisfaction, best appreciated in intermediate gears, where the Eaton blowing song is at its most delightfully penetrating…The car fits like a glove, as if the driver is the final component in a specification intended to re-enact the thrills and sensations of track driving.”

Road and Track, 2002: “Our slalom test revealed that the Mini can thread through the cones with moderate understeer and keep a blistering average speed of 67.6 mph, besting any current BMW, any Ferrari, and most Porches.”
