2011 MINI John Cooper Works Clubman
The MINI family got a little larger with the Clubman, but that didn’t stop the company that wants everyone to “be MINI” from realizing that a larger party can be even more fun. Since every inch of this extended Clubman is bristling with charisma and style, there’s even more to go around. So the Clubman went in for the full John Cooper Works monty, which ratchets up the fun and the boost in equal measure. The JCW Clubman gains a healthy 30 horsepower, which in a car this light is nothing to shake a stickshift at, to make a grand total of 208 fun-loving ponies. And the Clubman does indeed love to go around, whether it be corners or mountain twisties, thanks to huge stoppers, larger alloy wheels, and classically zippy MINI-tuned suspension. Flingable, practical, and outsizedly charismatic, the John Cooper Works Clubman is big fun, MINI style.
