B&B MINI JCW Convertible - a pocket rocket with up to 310 hp / 465 Nm

29.05.2017: B&B Automobiltechnik, MINI John Cooper Works Convertible Since its rebirth under BMW, the MINI has gone from

B&B Automobiltechnik, MINI John Cooper Works Convertible



Since its rebirth under BMW, the MINI has gone from strength to strength. More than just a fast inner city racer, the new MINI has also grown seven league boots thanks to the JCW (John Cooper Works) programme for the Cooper S models.



The performance experts at B&B Automobiltechnik have always had a passion for small, sporty cars, and have now adopted the new MINI JCW Convertible as the basis for their extending tuning programme.





Their engineers have now developed a three-stage tuning programme that increases the standard output of 231 hp and 320 Nm to as much as 310 hp, with 465 Nm of torque. With this Stage 3 (3,950 euro) conversion, the 0-100 km/h sprint is reduced from 6.3 to 5.4 seconds, and the factory top speed of 246 km/h is increased to over 280 km/h.



This ultimate stage requires mechanical changes that include a B&B highperformance charge air cooler, B&B downpipe with sports catalytic converter, optimised air intake paths and ducting. An ECU remap provides the appropriate fuel and ignition characteristics along with increased boost pressure.




At the other end of the scale, the entry-level B&B Stage 1 (1,298 euro) upgrade involves an ECU remap for a modest 0.2 bar increase in the turbo boost, along with fuelling and ignition changes for an output of 260 hp / 191 kW and 380 Nm of torque.



Stage 2 (1,950 euro) is good for 272 hp / 200 kW, with 400 Nm of torque. This output level is achieved through the optimisation of the air intake ducting, a 0.25 bar increase in boost pressure, and suitable fuel and ignition adjustments. All three tuning stages include deletion of the electronic Vmax limiter.



On models with the automatic transmission, the gearbox ECU is also remapped to ensure a seamless interface with the uprated motor. The B&B high efficiency oil cooling system (from 998 euro) is recommended for all power levels, and features a high flow rate and large surface area that results in an oil temperature reduction of up to 25 degrees C.




The B&B free-flow exhaust downpipe with sports catalyst (from 1,398 euro) that is part of the Stage 3 conversion is also available separately. Thanks to its optimised shape and larger cross section, it delivers a considerable reduction in exhaust gas pressure and temperature, releasing around 15 hp / 11 kW extra.



To improve the soundtrack, B&B offers a sports rear silencer (from 895 euro) or a complete cat-back sports exhaust system with electronic flap control (from 1,398 euro). As a third alternative, the B&B metal catalyst-equipped racing exhaust system is available from 2,795 euro. With even less backpressure, this system reduces the thermal load on the engine and the turbocharger and is worth up to 20 hp / 15 kW.





Handling and looks are improved by the B&B sport spring kit set (298 euro), which reduces the ride height by around 30 mm. The more hard-core driver will appreciate the fully adjustable B&B / KW V3 coilover suspension kit (from 1,849 euro).



Stopping quickly and safely is the province of the B&B high-performance brake system (from 3,295 euro) which features 342 mm front vented discs and larger calipers for improved braking performance.





These big brakes have been designed for use with either the factory 18-inch MINI wheels or the B&B B9 8.0x18-inch alloy wheel, which comes with 215/35ZR18 tyres (from 2,198 euro per set). These B&B wheels improve the cars looks and dynamics, and provide the finishing touch.
