conceived by German car tuner, CoverEFX, this Louis Vuitton-inspired John Cooper Works Mini is covered with gold on brown monogram design topped off with matte gold trimmings in every conceivable places. even the Xenon headlamps are not spared of the luxurious matte gold look. the special leather-textured foil wrap is emblazoned with the gold monograms, a la-Louis Vuitton-look, which makes the JCW looks like one serious luggage with mean horsepower.
what’s beneath the gold-trimmed bonnet was not spared either but this time, with another kind of ‘bling‘. serious horsepower was squeezed out of the already powerful 1.6-liter John Cooper Works engine with a two-stage performance upgrade. for stage one tuning, the Mini is given a larger sports air filter, a 2.5-inch Miltek exhaust system complete with downpipe, a free-flowing sports catalytic convertor and an ECU optimization that pushes out 236 hp and 350 Nm of torque.
stage two sees the Mini getting a more aggressively tuned ECU software pushing the Mini figures to 252 hp and 382 Nm of torque. completing the package are the 17-inch OZ LM wheels in matted black and gold finished wrapped in TOYO 205/40-17 rubbers and KW Variant 3 stainless-steel line suspension system. the CoverEFX JCW Mini is what best described as a beast with beauty. i want one now!
