Mini Australia has announced pricing for the Mini
Coupe will begin at $42,990* for the Cooper S model.
Mini Australia also confirmed the inclusion of the John Cooper Works engine variant in the Coupe
line-up, although the price for this variant will not be announced until February.
Not for the faint-hearted, the Mini Coupé offers thrills and chuck-ability like never before.
Cutting-edge drive system technology ensures that the engine’s output and torque are generated with
efficiency – and experienced with intensity by the driver.
Offering driving fun, the 1.6-litre power unit under the bonnet of the Cooper S Coupé combines
turbo-charging, direct injection and variable valve management producing 135 kW of power at 5,500
Maximum torque of 240 Nm is on tap as low down as 1,600 rpm, and can be raised to 260 Nm using the
Overboost function. The Mini Cooper S Coupé dashes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, offering a top
on-track speed of 230 km/h. Average fuel consumption of 6.3 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of
just 146 grammes per kilometre are available if driven conservatively - making the four-cylinder unit
in the Mini Cooper S Coupé the world’s most efficient engine in its class.
Mini Australia’s Acting National Head, Matt Schmidt said the Mini Coupé will add a new dimension
to the sports coupe segment.
“While the Coupé has introduced a new element of design into the Mini line-up, it embodies the
brand’s go-kart feeling with a whole new level of excitement, achieving the best performance figures
ever recorded by a volume-produced Mini,” said Mr Schmidt.
The Mini Coupe is instantly recognisable as a typical Mini at first glance with the continuation
of Mini iconography. However, the Coupé is the first Mini to adopt the three-box structure and is
clearly divided into three distinct segments: the engine compartment, passenger compartment and the
The clear horizontal structuring into three distinct tiers – the body, the wrap-around glass areas
and the strikingly superimposed roof – is a typical Mini hallmark. However, the innovative “helmet
roof” in particular gives the Mini Coupé a distinctive appearance from every angle.
To improve airflow at higher speeds, the Mini Coupé is the first ever Mini to feature an active
rear spoiler. Integrated in the boot lid, the spoiler pops up automatically when the Mini Coupé
reaches a speed of 80 km/h and retracts when the speed falls below 60 km/h.
Highlights across the two models include (but not limited to) the active rear spoiler, 17” light
alloy rims, sport button, park distance control, Xenon headlights, sport leather steering wheel,
sports seats, automatic air conditioning, Mini Radio Boost CD and Bluetooth. Automatic transmission
will be an option for the Cooper S coupe, but not available for the JCW version.
Safety features include Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Antilock Braking System (ABS) four
airbags, crash sensor, Electronic Braking Force Distribution Control, twin horns, 3-point seat belts and a
Mini’s latest model will arrive in Australian showrooms in February 2012.
