Brace yourself… Manhart Performance has come up with this – the F300 MINI Cooper JCW.
Based on the Mini Cooper John Cooper Works, the model comes in British Racing Green with gold decals and 19″ alloy wheels. The hatchback has also been equipped with side stripes and plenty of “F300” badging.
Performance-wise, the Manhart Mini F300 receives a whopping 300BHP and maximum torque of 470Nm, which is also aided with a carbon fibre tower strut brace and an adjustable KW coil-over suspension. Under the bonnet, the turbocharged 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine has been equipped with a new intercooler, an optimised ECU, and a Remus stainless steel sports exhaust system.
The exterior styling might not be to everyone’s cup of tea but the interior should get the thumbs up as it features premium leather and Alcantara upholstery. The car also has an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, gold contrast stitching, and velour floor mats with embroidered “Manhart” logos.
The main question… ‘How quick is this MINI?’; well Manhart has decided not to release any performance figures but with the standard setup achieving 0-62 miles per hour in 6.1 seconds, it should easily surpass the numbers posted by the stock model!
