Are you going by the top speed on the speedometer? If so, that isn't accurate.
Speedometers are more optimistic as speed increases.
I own a JCW GP and I have gotten up to 144 mph so I am positive the top speed isn't 137

I had a race with one today in my tunned up fiat coupe 20v turbo,pumping out approx 280bhp and there was not much in it but my coope had the edge over the works cooper S .I have to admit the mini was better around corners on a 10 mile bendy road with a few 1/2 mile straights etc I was only about 20 seconds ahead I was so impressed when I got home with the mini, thats why am on here 2c performance facts . 5* from me for mini woks
It is 218hp (euro) the JCW model is 208hp, but anyway mine did 191hp at the wheel. An acquaintances' dynod 187hp. The problem with it is the hard run-flat tyres. They should have put the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres.
This car should be much quicker based on it\'s power to weight ratio.. It\'s either not making 215hp or the stats are wrong.
A car with a power to weight ratio of 12:1 (approx. 3MPS) shouldn\'t take 16.1 seconds to go from 0-100mph. I don\'t think its drag cof and gearing is that horrendous.
my supercharged fiesta st will eat this.
310bhp ha!soon to be 330bhp+
still not spent that much buying and tuning my car..tops out now at 150mph soon to be 157.
very nice car though...good all round car..rare,fast,looks the part nice.

All these stats are wrong,
The car has 218 bhp and weights 1140kg
0 - 60 is 6.5 to 6 seconds tested.
