Tuned MINI JCW Clubman wears red lipstick, new shoes and looks ready for a night out
With Flash Red accents contrasting the car’s white and black bodywork, this JCW Clubman looks party-ready, and aftermarket alloys contribute to the revised stance. Squeezed by 225/35 tires on both axles, the Y-spoke set is from Barracuda Racing Wheels, measures 8.5 x 19 inches and sports a red and black look just like the rest of the vehicle.
JMS Fahrzeugteile doesn’t normally go off the beaten track when it comes to his tuned cars, so it’s no wonder they decided to call him a day after outfitting this one with lowering springs. Combined with the model’s standard shocks, they were signed by H&R and lower it by 35 mm (1.4 in) at the front and rear.
MINI’s latest JCW Clubman is on sale in various markets around the world, from the United States to Australia. On the left side of the Atlantic Ocean, it carries an MSRP of $ 39,500, before destination, nearly $ 10,000 more than the entry-level Clubman, but that’s a lot of car for the money.
It combines a generous interior, high-end comfort and technological equipment, with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The mill sports a few updates over the one that powers its predecessor and develops 301 hp at 5,000 rpm and 331 lb-ft (449 Nm) of torque at 1,750 rpm. The automatic transmission directs the thrust to the all-wheel drive system, and the automaker says the JCW Clubman needs 4.6 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph (97 km / h) from a standstill.
