MINI in Pebble Beach: High speed and high tension.

At a Monterey Car Week 2019 in California in a US, MINI was
celebrating 60 years of a brand’s existence with a arrangement of
dual new models – The new MINI John Cooper Works GP and a new MINI
Cooper SE paint a destiny bandwidth in a indication operation of the
British reward automobile manufacturer.

Munich. Anniversary mood underneath California’s sun. At
a Monterey Car Week 2019 and a Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance,
MINI distinguished a brand’s 60th birthday with a examination of a history
and an opinion on a future. On America’s west coast, MINI presented
a array of historically critical vehicles and supposing an initial
demeanour during dual fascinating new models: a brand’s many absolute series
automobile ever constructed and a initial all-electric powered MINI. The new
MINI John Cooper Works GP is now undergoing a final proviso of
a array growth routine with high-speed laps on countless racing
marks via a world, before being launched on a marketplace in an
book singular to 3 000 cars during a entrance year. The new MINI
Cooper SE (fuel expenditure total 0.0 l/100 km; electricity
expenditure combined: 16.8 – 14.8 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined:
0 g/km) is expected with high grade of tension. Production launch
is already scheduled for Nov 2019. Taken together, a dual models
paint a destiny bandwidth of a indication operation for a British
reward code – from internal zero-emission mobility in city traffic, to
stirring opening on a competition track.

The antecedent of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP already gives an
inkling of a superb high-performance characteristics in Pebble
Beach with a yawning atmosphere scoops, vast amalgamate wheels, an independent
pattern for a front and back aprons and a distinguished roof spoiler. The
considerable coming is positively not overstated. During exam drives
on a Nürburgring, a new impassioned sports automobile in a MINI indication range
went around a mythological North Loop in reduction than 8 minutes. This
attainment is powered by a four-cylinder engine make-up some-more than 220 kW/300
hp with MINI TwinPower Turbo record underneath a bonnet. The new
engine, a framework record grown with motor-sport know-how
from John Cooper Works and a aerodynamically optimised physique meld
together to form a precisely tuned altogether package for a exuberant
competition feeling.

The MINI Cooper SE is significantly some-more understated than a new
chosen contestant though it presents an matchless character. Subtle accents
of colour in yellow, a hidden hexagonal radiator grille, the
deficiency of an empty complement and lightweight amalgamate wheels tailored to
a indication prominence a tolerable expostulate judgment of a electric
automobile formed on a MINI 3-door concept. Driving fun in a MINI
Cooper SE is standard of MINI and nonetheless fascinatingly new. The
extemporaneous growth of energy generated by a 135 kW/184 hp
electric motor, a framework tuned privately for a indication and the
quite low centre of sobriety due to a high-voltage battery
positioned in a automobile building give a automobile well-developed agility
and energetic opening when cornering. In future, this means that
electromobility can be gifted in a matchless character of MINI.

When a dual new vehicles were presented in Pebble Beach, they were
upheld by a expel of well-developed member from a 60-year
story of a brand. Alongside a Mini Cooper S from 1965 in
contemporary convene trim and dual special editions from a final
prolongation year of a classical Mini, a first-generation MINI John
Cooper Works and a MINI E were also on display. The MINI E produced
10 years ago in a tiny array already yielded critical findings
about a operation of electric vehicles in bland situations. The
knowledge gained in contrast opposite a universe was subsequently
channelled into growth of a electrically powered models of the
BMW Group.

 

The values of fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electricity
expenditure shown were dynamic according to a exam procedure
tangible in a European Directive VO (EU) 2007/715 in a version
germane during a time of form approval. The total impute to a
automobile with simple pattern in Germany and a operation shown
takes comment of discretionary apparatus and a opposite distance of wheels
and tyres accessible on a comparison model. These factors can change
during a configuration.

The values of some vehicles are totalled according to a new
WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and
converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison
purposes. The taxes or other duties for these vehicles might be based
on fuel expenditure and CO2 emissions information that differ from that
shown here.

Further information on central fuel expenditure and official
specific CO2 emissions of new newcomer cars is given in the
‘Handbook of fuel consumption, a CO2 emissions and power
expenditure of new newcomer cars’, that can be performed giveaway of
