Some say that the John Cooper Works Coupe is a design masterpiece. Others say that its not so much the design as it is how different this car looks. Different in a good way or a bad way you ask? The answer is subjective and depends a lot on personal taste but one thing is quite sure: the Mini John Cooper Works Coupe is more different than you think thanks to its helmet roof and tail design. As Mini claims on their official website, John Cooper Works Coupe looks fast even standing still and all credits goes to the design. The funniest thing about the John Cooper Works Coupe is that it weights more than its sedan sibling, a result of serious structural reinforcement! The car is heavier by around 60 pounds. The 210 HP engine on John Cooper Works Coupe makes it one of the most powerful models with a turbocharger. This baby is really awesome on the road.

ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

With a manufacturer claimed 0 to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds and a massive top speed of 148 mph, this is a really fast car. But think carefully before you consider pushing your Mini to its limit because it's a very small car and feels much faster without hitting its top speed. Front drive cars are notorious for poor balance but the Mini John Cooper Works Coupe is the exception to this. The John Cooper Works Coupe also adjusts very well to 21st century conditions and the advanced GPS navigation with stereo system are two good examples. The car gives such a massive priority to driving and handling, and there are many instances where you feel that comfort has been somewhat compromised.

However, John Cooper Works Coupe is designed for the performance fanatic and for them, handling is the utmost priority. This is a place where John Cooper Works Coupe surprises you and the car is an outstanding performer on every road condition. The two seat setup means that the John Cooper Works Coupe is not the kind of car you will use to take your family around, but you will use it to burn around time and enjoy time with a friend or partner at best. With good cargo space for a coupe, you can also hit the road for long road trips!
