The nerve centre of the MINI Cooper S Coupé is the four-cylinder twin-scroll turbo engine. This power unit has already scooped the “Best Engine Of The Year” award for four years in a row.
Its overboost function, which increases the peak torque of 260 Nm at 4500 rpm, is also one of a kind. It makes the MINI Cooper S Coupé capable of thrilling road performance. It sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds. And drivers can push the speedometer right the way up to 224 km/h – with the rear spoiler extended. This feature reduces lift at speeds above 80 km/h and makes for excellent roadholding.
A sports car that’s just perfect for an urban adventure.
The driver can unleash this huge amount of power while still keeping the fuel consumption very modest. Thanks to MINIMALISM, the average standard consumption is just 5.8 l/100 km. The following technologies help to save fuel. The Auto Start Stop function automatically switches off the engine when the car is stopped and waiting at traffic lights. Brake Energy Regeneration means that the alternator charges up the battery if the driver’s foot is not on the accelerator. Shift Point Display shows the best moment to change gear for maximum economy.
This approach to driving fun also means keeping the fuel gauge needle over to the right for as long as possible.
