BMW has revealed the pricing and the specifications for the new Mini John Cooper Work. A base price of $47,400 is what the six-speed manual version will cost, while those who’ll want to own the six-speed automatic variant, will have to pay just a shade below $50,000, $49,950 to be precise. This is pretty remarkable, because this means that the new versions will actually be cheaper that the current cars they will replace.
This could be crucial for BMW, because that also means the new Mini will actually be cheaper than the concurrent Audi’s S1 model which starts at $49.900, and to top it off, only comes in a manual version. The all-new Mini will have a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that’s capable of getting the car from 0 to 100 km/h in only 6.3 seconds, and for the manual version, that time will only be 6.1 sec. The new version will not just be more powerful, but it will be more efficient as well. The automatic version of the Mini will be using 5.7 liter of fuel per every 100 kilometers, while the manual will eat a little more, around 6.7.
