After reading this review several years ago... "Here was a Mini with decent rear-seat room and cargo capacity, a Mini that could be packed with three adults for a night on the town, a Mini that could haul a bicycle or a small chest of drawers. But it was a Mini that longed for twisty back roads and 360-degree freeway on-ramps, a Mini with big, red Brembo brake calipers hiding behind large alloy wheels, a Mini with a Sport mode that caused the exhaust to pop and burble like a high-strung track toy." These were the initial comments in the Motortrend logbook that reflected the Clubman JCW's split personality. The John Cooper Works package adds 36 horsepower to the turbocharged engine, bigger brakes, 17-inch wheels with high-performance tires, and a stiffer, lowered suspension. The extra grunt lops six-tenths of a second off the car’s 0-to-60-mph time and seven-tenths from the quarter-mile run. Chassis performance is where this car shines. "This is a Mini I purchased for myself, I had heard and read all of the hype, so I had to get one and try it for myself. It has not disappoint me". As soon as I got it we ran it through the shop for a checkup, installed a new clutch, had Brandon Smith (owner of Classic AutoSmith and my son) add his custom touches to if for me, Ultra Gauge Pack, K&N intake and off I went.
