For those seeking the ultimate factory Mini, the John Cooper Works edition should satisfy and then some. More than 200 horsepower reside under the hood, compared to the 175 HP of the Cooper S. This is brought forth via a larger turbocharger, a revised cylinder head, and a little work to the intake plumbing. Coupled with a beefier clutch and mildly modified transmission, all that new-found power is ready to be put to good use. The Mini Cooper has always been a nimble little hot-hatch. The John Cooper Works edition gives you the best you can buy off the showroom floor.
