German luxury automobile maker BMW has launched a premium luxury small car – the MINI JWC Pro Edition in India, priced at Rs 43.90 lakh; and there is something about MINIs that always make me say “teeny-tiny cutesy car” – well, not so tiny, but they are undeniably cute!
MINI, the British automotive marque specialised in premium small cars and owned by BMW is known for minis, the most celebrated one is – of course the MINI Cooper (thanks to ‘The Italian Job’) and MINI Countryman and the Hatch, the Clubman, the Paceman.. well, alright – all of them. MINI have introduced a new edition in India, and this one is extra special – I am getting back to this in a moment; so the new car is – MINI JCW Pro Edition. This new car combines the MINI 3-Door Cooper S with the John Cooper Works tuning kit, along with original John Cooper Works Accessories.
The John Cooper Works Pro tuning kids make the performance of this MINI butter smooth and the JCW accessories simply take driving experience to a whole new level. It is like perfectly blending the distinctive style with legendary driving dynamics and the classic MINI go-kart feeling, all in a cutesy way, you know! The new model is sold as a Completely- Built up Unit (CBU) in India and is available in two colour options – midnight black and classic British racing green colour with red roof and mirror caps; it’s the racing green, the pretty one – don’t disguise it without looking, just take a look alright! Although nothing can beat black and then the way it roars, man!

Talking about features, the vehicle gets JCW rear spoiler, JCW sport seats, LCW sport leather steering wheel and 17-inch cosmos spoke black alloy wheels. The vehicle is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that generates 207bhp of power and 300Nm of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. To distinguish it from a regular version, the JCW Pro gets electronic damper control, interior colour line in glowing red, rear parking sensors, LED headlamps and a 6.6-inch MINI central information display. It is a cool car, cutesy (pardon me, can’t stop saying that).
About the extra special thing I told you about – only 20 units of the MINI JCW Pro Edition will be available for booking in India – exclusively on Amazon India. Do you want to buy it? Well, the bookings are now open on Amazon, and you might want to hurry because 20 cars will sell like hot cakes in the mass of such a vast country. Again (for the last time), the cutesy car is worth all the money.
