The vehicle is powered by a 1.6l four-cylinder engine with Twin-Scroll turbocharger and petrol direct injection which develops 211 hp.
The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, allowing the Cooper JCW to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds, going on to a top speed of 238 km/h (148 mph). Average consumption in the EU test cycle is 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers, with a CO2 figure of 165 grams per kilometer.
A new color for MINI is introduced on the Cooper JCW World Championship 50: Connaught Green, reminiscent of the color of British race cars of the 1950s and 60s. It blends with the roof and bonnet stripes in Pepper White, bringing back the feel of the Cooper F1 cars.
On the interior, the racing theme is continued by Carbon Black overlaid by red touches. The full leather sports seats come in black with red piping, while the red theme also visible with co-ordinating red knee-rolls, armrests and red stitching on the floor mats, gearshift and handbrake gaiters.
