Mini has released a new funny commercial that features the Countryman. The model is powered by a four-cylinder engine (petrol or diesel) offered in several variants with related powers, ranging from 98hp of the Mini One to 143hp of the Cooper S. The S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds reaching a top speed of 215 km/h, with CO2 emissions of 143 g/km.
During the 2012 New York Auto Show Mini displayed a sportier racing variant. We are obviously talking about the Countryman John Cooper Works powered by a 1.6-litre engine with output of 218 hp and 280 Nm of torque and 300Nm in overboost, coupled to the ALL4 four wheel drive. Aesthetically the car features an aerodynamic kit, sports chassis with lowered suspension, chromium plated sports exhaust system and 18-inch alloy wheels.
At the American Auto Show was also displayed the “Mini 10 Years Anniversary” special edition to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the British brand on the US market. As expected the car based on the Mini Cooper with 122hp, it is available in the three colours that make up the American flag: red, blue and white.
