2002 Twin Engine Mini Cooper - Jay Leno's Garage
Jay Leno's Garage
Mini Cooper Coupe - FIRST LOOK!
Mini is a brand that's all about having fun. The people that drive them
tend to prize motoring enjoyment and the company's cheeky styling, and now
they'll have a new model that might just twist their fun dial to 11. We
present to you the 2012 Mini Cooper Coupe, which is the automaker's first
production two-passenger automobile and also the fastest box-stock Mini
The exterior of the Coupe is undeniably Mini, yet very new at the same
time. This is the first Mini to be built with a "three-box" design concept,
which means the body, wraparound glass and roof are three boxes built upon
a horizontal plane. The face is familiar, and looks aggressive in John
Cooper Works guise (shown here) thanks to the chin spoiler that flows into
the large fenders. The posterior, along with its bubbled-up roof, are where
the spots where observers will quickly tell Coupe from standard Cooper. The
stepped rear end hides a bit of active aero in the form of a wing that
automatically deploys at 50 miles per hour. The spoiler goes back into
hiding when speeds dips below 37 mph, and the technology is not just a
first for Mini, but for the BMW family as a whole.
Mini will offer the 2012 Cooper Coupe in three flavors; base Cooper Coupe,
Cooper S Coupe and the John Cooper Works Coupe. All three employ a
1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, and come paired with a six-speed manual
transmission. A six-speed automatic is also available for the Cooper S
Coupe and Cooper Coupe. The entry-level mill produces 121 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and
118 pound-feet of torque at 4,250 rpm, which helps it run from 0-60 miles
per hour in 8.3 seconds, and on to a top speed of 127 mph. The EU standard
lists fuel economy at 5.4 liters per 100 kilometers, which translates to
nearly 44 miles per gallon, but official U.S. EPA estimates are not yet
The two spicier variants, the S Coupe and JCW Coupe, add a twin-scroll turbocharger and direct-injection to the
1.6-liter four-pot. Power for the S is rated at 181 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and
177 pound-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm through 5,000 rpm. A temporary overBoost function allows for a jump to 192
pound-feet from 1,700 rpm through 4,500 rpm. In JCW trim, the Coupe takes
advantage of 208 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and
192 pound-feet of torque from 1,850 rpm to 5,600 rpm. OverBoost is also available here, and pushes
torque to 207 lb-ft from 1,700 through 4,500 rpm. The S coupe runs from
0-60 miles per hour in 6.5 seconds, and the JCW Coupe needs just 6.1
seconds for the same trip. Each will crest 140 miles per hour, with the S
Coupe capable of 142 and the JCW able to nick 149 mph.
