The latest addition to MINI’s John Cooper Works lineup is this amped up version of their compact crossover, packing a twin-turbo engine that makes 228 hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque, an all-wheel drivetrain, sport suspension, Brembo brakes, and bold JCW body styling.
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.
