If there is any vehicle that creates a lifestyle influence which can be compared to a kind of iPod lifestyle revolution than it’s the recession ignoring MINI. Driving a Mini Cooper equals getting lost in an untouched time sphere of pleasure, and a John Coopers Works version ups the ante with bulked-up performance and redesign. The MINI JCW convertible is a fun car with some serious performance ambitious as it is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter with 211 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque allowing the topless pocket rocket to hit the 60 mph after a concise 6.6 seconds sprint. Furthermore the iconic curve-slicer achieves a respectable top speed of 146 mph. Apart the performance distinctions, the JCW convertible also features several original interior touches such as the piano-lacquer trim or the three-spoke leather steering wheel.
