A number of new John Cooper Works accessories are set to debut at the Paris Motor Show
New sports suspension uses specially developed components for outstanding road-holding, including short and stiff coil springs to reduce the car’s ground clearance, allowing even faster cornering, without compromising safety. Prices start at £495 for MINI Cooper S models and £615 for MINI Cooper models. Also, a new cross-brace in the engine compartment adds stability by reducing body vibration.
The degree of safety is further optimised by the first class sports brake system, which combines larger brake discs and massive brake callipers at the front with special brake pad linings on the rear axle. The braking system is a genuine racing tool - just like the 18-inch star-spoke R95 light alloy wheels. All accessories have been developed jointly by Mike Cooper’s specialists and MINI engineers.
In order to generate an even sportier appearance, a new carbon fibre rear spoiler, tailgate handle and exterior wing mirror covers have been added to the list of available exterior accessories. On the inside, for drivers after an authentic racing feel, a new carbon fibre interior trim can be teamed with John Cooper Works Sports Seats.
All the new John Cooper Works accessories are available from the end of September with the exception of the sports brake system, cross brace and carbon fibre trim which will be offered from early 2005.Published 10 September 2004
