CLUBMAN WORKS UP

Mini has added the JCW flagship model to its Clubman.

As with all John Cooper Works models its all about performance, something that comes courtesy of a 2.0-litre four-cylinder.

That fiery four-pot now drives all-four wheels, helping lower the claimed 0-100km/h time to 6.3 seconds.

The standard transmission is an eight-speed auto or you can pick up the six-speed manual for the same $53,900 ask.

And the JCWs party trick?

Its 350Nm torque peak is higher than any other in a petrol-engined Mini.
