SMALL CAR, HUGE PERFORMANCE

November 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last weekend we had organised for a group of friends to pop over for a run up the hill behind our house and stay for a quiet drink and a feed.  To my surprise we saw a little blue car screaming up our driveway like a little blue bullet. 

 

Ewen had recently acquired this awesome 2015 Mini Cooper S and you could tell by the sound of the engine that it had the special edition John Cooper Works Tuning kit.  There was no way that I was going miss out on a ride in this machine.

 

 

Before Ewen pulled out of the driveway, he switched the car into sports mode by using a remote control bluetooth device that he had in his hand.  Instantly the sound of the engines idle changed.  "This is going to be fun."  I thought to myself as we pulled out of the driveway onto the country road. 

 

 

The engine burbled as Ewen changed down the gears on the Steptronic Sports Automatic transmission and then the instant power when the accelerator was put to the floor.  The tuned-up Cooper S. power being boosted from 192bhp to 210bhp thanks to the improvements of the engine and the exhaust system.

 

 

A perfect way to spend a Saturday evening. Thanks Ewen for taking me for a spin.
