Introducing the MINI Carbon Edition: The fastest, loudest, and most powerful MINI Hardtop 4 Door

Woodcliff Lake, NJ,  December 2, 2015. The Carbon Edition combines the already powerful MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4 Door model with the new John Cooper Works Pro Tuning Kit, valve exhaust system and high-grade carbon fiber accessories. The result is 208 horsepower and an ultra-aggressive exhaust note with Sport and Track Mode*.

The exhaust flap is operated wirelessly via two clicks of the Bluetooth controller and unleashes devilish backfire pops and crackling sound on the overrun.

Genuine carbon fiber mirror caps, air intake trim, and tailpipe finishers are offset against Midnight Black metallic paint and exclusive matte black sport and side stripes accented by a red pinstripe.

The JCW Exterior Package and additional accessory parts further distinguish the edition, with the aggressively styled body kit, rear spoiler, and 17” JCW Track Spoke Black Wheels.

These exterior upgrades are complemented on the interior by an 8.8” high-resolution screen with navigation, JCW steering wheel, sunroof, heated seats, and MINI’s Harman/Kardon premium sound system.

Customers looking to order a Carbon Edition should contact their local MINI dealer.
