I love it that MINI does these quirky videos for all its cool cars. Over time, I've learned not to take everything being said seriously, which is not to say that we aren't going to have a laugh. After watching it, you might end up wanting one.
Before I started watching these, I thought Rebel Green was a boring color. But they changed my opinion. Likewise, a few quick tugs of the handbrake convinced me that the MINI John Cooper Works Convertible is an agile luxury supermini, not a 1.5-ton whale of a car.
The new JCW Convertible was actually launched in 2016. It shares its 2.0-liter turbo engine with its three sister cars, the hardtop, Clubman, and Countryman (plus a few BMWs). The 231 PS punch is enough for 0 to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds or 60 mph in 6.3 seconds. However, having a manual gearbox adds 0.1 seconds to that.
