Front Wheel Fun: 2009 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works

The rebooted Mini might have lost much of its British charm, but the infusion of German sports DNA (from Mini’s new parent company BMW) was really noticeable in the John Cooper Works edition of the Mini Cooper S. With 211 horsepower and 261 ft-lbs of torque from the turbocharged 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine the JCW version of the Cooper S is one of the more fun front-wheel-drive cars you will ever own. Find this 2009 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works offered for $8000 in Austin, TX via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
