Spyshots: 2015 MINI Cooper S Fully Revealed
This car is supposed to come out on November 18th, and ahead of that debut date they're filming a promo vehicle with this sick-looking machine, tailed by a Porsche Cayenne camera car.
From the hood scoop and the double exhaust… and the S badges, we know for certain this is the new Cooper S hatch. Powering it is a new 2.0-liter turbo four cylinder, rated at 192 PS or 189 hp US. Twisting force is 280 Nm and can be boosted to 300 Nm using overboost.
The current model has a 1.6-liter turbo engine making 184 hp and 240 Nm of torque. Despite the bigger engine and increase in power, they say fuel efficiency is better.
Newly developed manual and automatic gearboxes, both six-speed units, will further improve fuel efficiency and deliver sporty pleasure.
We almost forgot to talk about the looks, didn't wee? It's over a decade since they relaunched the brand, and this car has graduated, got its masters and is off to the corporate world, while partying like a rock star on the weekends. But what do you guys thing?
