A new limited edition MINI John Cooper Works has hit the block, inspired by the latest Challenge racing car. Offering larger air intakes, unique wheel arches, and a rear spoiler, the Mini John Cooper Works Challenge Racer's 228hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine delivers better performance on the road and track with plenty of other updates - from the JCW Pro Aerokit to the Pro Exhaust - locked and loaded. The 0-100 km/h time has been clocked at 6.3 seconds while top speed hits 153mph, but drivers can toggle between road and track modes to access additional exhaust, braking, suspension, and camber adjustments. Mini will be making only 100 copies of the JCW Challenge just for the UK market, priced at £32,000, but you can see plenty more in our gallery below.
