Fastest, loudest and most powerful Mini available in India.
BMW India has launched the Mini Cooper S Carbon Edition at INR 39.9 lakhs, ex-Showroom, though buyers have to book the hot-hatchback exclusively on Amazon India’s website. After booking the car on Amazon, the local BMW dealer will get in touch with the buyer for processing the remaining payment and deliver the car.
Billed as the “fastest, loudest and most powerful Mini available in India”, the Cooper S Carbon Edition gets a John Cooper Works Tuning Kit along with John Cooper Works accessories, and is available in three exterior colours: Pepper White, Thunder Grey and Midnight Black.
The exterior gets matte black side stripes, a red pinstripe and the word “Carbon” emblazoned on the sides. A JCW aerodynamic package, 17-inch light-alloy wheels with 205 profile tyres, and a Carbon Fibre exhaust complete the look.
Under the hood, the Mini Cooper S Carbon Edition packs the 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with BMW’s TwinPower Turbo Technology paired to a 6-speed Sport Steptronic gearbox. Where the regular Cooper S makes 192 hp and 280 Nm of torque, the Carbon Edition develops 210 hp and 300 Nm of torque, and claims a 0-100 km/h time of 6.5 seconds (the regular Cooper S does it in 6.7 seconds).
Inside, the Cooper S Carbon Edition gets John Cooper Works sports seats with integrated headrests finished in Black Alcantara with contrasting red stitching. Other features include a John Cooper Works leather steering wheel with paddle shifters, John Cooper Works door sills, and a John Cooper Works gear selector lever with a glowing red trim.
