The new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman gets a zesty new engine with 228hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque, as well as standard AWD, sport suspension, Brembo brakes, and 18″ alloy rims. Inside there’s more space than ever, with seating for five, and sweet JCW sport seats.
While they’re known for their subcompact cars, Mini now has their own subcompact urban bicycles. The 24-pound bike folds neatly and is small enough to fit in the back of – you guessed it – a Mini Cooper.
To be unveiled at the Geneva Auto show, the MINI Rocketman concept car clocks in at about 3 meters long; it features carbon construction, chassis gliding doors, 18″ wheels and wrap-around glass roof.
Mini’s Scooter E Concept is powered by an integrated electric motor in the rear wheel and features a smartphone adapter which operates as vehicle key, display and central control element.
Cummins has creatively crammed a 3500 hp, V18 diesel engine (you know, the kind they put in dump trucks) into an original Mini; it has more than 10,000lb/ft of torque and uses 12 turbochargers.
