MINI Coupé: Australian Pricing Revealed

My Drive: MINI Australia’s Matt Schmidt reveled the pricing of MINI’s newest creation, the MINI Coupé. The MINI Coupé certainly is RED HOT with ample good looks, a savvy roofline and just the right stance especially for a two seater. See it. Drive it. Love it. The all new MINI Coupé is set to take the essence of go-kart handling to the next level. Today MINI Australia announced pricing for the MINI Coupe to start from $42,990 for the Cooper S model, offering Australian customers an exceptionally competitive price point. MINI Australia also confirmed the inclusion of the almighty John Cooper Works engine variant in the Coupé line up – set to join the Cooper S for a local launch in February 2012. Not for the faint-hearted, the MINI Coupé offers thrills and chuck-ability like never before. Cutting-edge drive system technology ensures that the engine’s output and torque are generated with exceptional efficiency – and experienced with great intensity by the driver.

Offering unbeatable efficiency and intoxicating driving fun, the 1.6-litre power unit under the bonnet of the Cooper S Coupé combines turbo-charging, direct injection and variable valve management producing 135kW of power at 5,500 rpm. Maximum torque of 240 Nm is on tap as low down as 1,600 rpm, and can be raised to 260 Nm using the Overboost function. The MINI Cooper S Coupé dashes from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.9 seconds, offering a top speed of 230 km/h. These performance figures team up with an average fuel consumption of 6.3 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of just 146 grams per kilometre – making the four-cylinder unit in the MINI Cooper S Coupé the world’s most efficient engine in its class.

MINI’s latest dare devils will arrive in Australian showrooms in February 2012.
