Mini has launched a special edition version of the Cooper S, called the Carbon Edition at Rs 39.9 lakh(ex-showroom, Delhi). Only 20 units will be sold on Amazon India’s website.
On the outside, you notice sporty revisions, like a body kit, 17-inch black alloy wheels and carbonfibre-finished exhaust pipes. The interiors boast of John Cooper Works sports seats and steering. Features include an 8.8-inch infotainment display with a touch-pad controller, heads-up display, LED headlamps, rear parking sensors and electric damper control.
Under the bonnet lies a tweaked 210bhp, 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo motor that churns out 300Nm of torque. Mated to the motor is a 6-speed auto ‘box, with Launch Control and paddle-shifters on offer. A 0-100 sprint is dealt with in just 6.5 seconds, with a top speed of 300kph.
Available in three shades: Thunder Grey, Pepper White and Midnight Black, the Cooper Edition is aimed at those who want a faster Mini to play around with.
