SkillanNaylor Car Company are pleased to offer this 2017 MINI 2.0 John Cooper Works Challenge 3Dr seen in White Silver Metallic with Anthracite Cloth/Alcantara upholstery.
John Cooper Works is the performance sub brand for MINI. John Cooper Works or JCW cars are the fastest most focused variants of the MINI range.
The MINI JCW 3DR Hatch is a great car and regarding as a potent hot hatch. It features a 2.0L 4-Cylinder Turbo Petrol engine that develops 227 BHP. This amount of power in a car the size and weight of a 3Dr MINI makes for an exciting ride.
In 2017 EVO Magazine asked the questions " What if the MINI JCW 3Dr was made even more focused and exciting to drive. What if the chassis and running gear were upgraded with the very best hardware available. Could the MINI JCW 3Dr Hatch be made into a track warrior capable of slaying much more powerful and expensive circuit monsters?"
The MINI JCW Challenge was a collaboration between EVO magazine and MINI UK. It was a 'Skunk Works' project that almost didn't happen. This was due to MINI's parent company BMW not being in favour of using third-party upgrade parts. They thought that only parts developed by them should be used to improve the MINI JCW 3Dr Hatch.
MINI UK & EVO won the arm wrestle and the New MINI JCW Challenge was given the green light. Its development was covered in a few editions of EVO magazine and input of the chassis dynamics came from the journalists who worked for EVO at the time. The whole car was gone through and stiffened and lightened where required. The factory specification was paired down and no other options were available to be added. The non-MINI upgrades read like a who's who of the performance car world. Nitron, Team Dynamics, Pirelli, Mintex, Quaife were all called upon to enhance and upgrade the MINI.
There was supposed to be a planned build run of 100 cars however only 53 were ever completed. This makes the JCW Challenge one of the rarest MINIs available. Of the cars produced approximately half a driven and the other half are in car collections.
The MINI JCW Challenge is track focused pocket rocket that cares little for refinement and more about lap times. It does however still offer some creature comforts. It has seating for 4 adults unlike the GP MINI's that were reduced to just 2 seats. It has Bluetooth phone prep, rear parking sensors and even ISOFIX Child Seat prep.
This car is number 12 and it has just 21,484 miles and is presented in great condition throughout. If you are looking for a hardcore track toy that can also be driven day to day that will embarrass most supercars that cost 3 x as much look no further.
