2006 MINI Cooper

2006 MINI Cooper Review

(0 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Adria, Italy As a send-off for the current Mini Cooper, Mini is offering the Cooper S with the John Cooper Works GP kit, a stripped-down, pumped-up version for 415 of the hard-core faithful. The GP dumps its rear seats and rear wiper and forgoes options such as xenon headlights, climate control, and a sunroof. Added items include lightweight eighteen-inch wheels, a carbon-fiber rear wing, aluminum rear suspension arms, and a rear body brace. U.S. cars get regular sport seats instead of our European test car's Recaros. We also miss out on tinted rear windows but gain standard stability control, air-conditioning, and side curtain air bags. The weight saved versus a regular Cooper S is 100 pounds.

The Subaru Legacy and the Mini Cooper prove that reasonably priced cars can be just as much fun as exotics. Online editor Mike Dushane and road test coordinator Marc Noordeloos show what these two economical Automobile Magazine All-Stars can do.
