2006 Mini Cooper S Custom JCW Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of this highly modified 2006 Mini cooper S, converted to a John Cooper Works but still retaining the Supercharger + many other modifications. Showcases the high customizability of mini coopers in general! I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Mini Cooper vs Porsche Carrera S 997
When production of the classic Mini ceased in 2000, BMW (the new owner of the brand) announced the successor to the Mini—which is variously called the "BMW MINI" or the "New MINI". The brand name for the new car is MINI (written in capital letters)
In 2004 the 911 was heavily revised and the 996's replacement, the 997, was unveiled in July. The 997 keeps the basic profile of the 996, bringing the drag coefficient down to 0.28, but draws on the 993 for detailing. In addition, the new front fascia is reminiscent of the older generation, with the traditional "bug eye" headlamps. Its interior is also similarly revised, with strong links to the earlier 911 interiors while at the same time looking fresh and modern. The 997 shares less than a third of its parts with the outgoing 996, but is still technically very similar to it. Initially, two versions of the 997 were introduced— the rear wheel drive Carrera and Carrera S. While the base 997 Carrera produced 325 PS (239 kW) from its 3.6 L Flat 6, a more powerful 3.8 L 355 PS (261 kW) Flat 6 powers the Carrera S. Besides a more powerful engine, the Carrera S also comes standard with 19 inch (48 cm) "Lobster Fork" style wheels, more powerful and larger brakes (with red calipers), a more sporty suspension, complete with PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) which allows for electronic adjustability of suspension settings, Xenon Headlamps, and Sport Steering wheel.
Group Drive: Mini Cooper S R56, Ferrari 512 TR, BMW E30, and more!
Our monthly get-together. In attendance was a GORGEOUS Grigio Ingrid Ferrari 360 Modena, a beautiful rosso corsa Ferrari 512 Testarossa, my pepper white Mini Cooper S R56, a red BMW E30, and a stunning red/black Ariel Atom! After the coffee meet, the Ferrari 512 TR, the BMW, and me in the Mini, took a fun little cruise. My friend filmed the drive as my passenger while I drove my Mini. Enjoy!
