A hurricane of emotions: the fresh BMW M and MINI JCW

WithStolichny the racetrack, “the Seagull” I have not seen such an impressive technology – because to us straight from Germany has come the latest development of MINI and BMW, and very difficult.

The quintessential MINI is a John Cooper Works performance: a tribute to the most legendary Austin Mini, modified brilliant engineer John Cooper, who tore off one victory after another on the European rally in the last century. We showed hatchbacks convertibles MINI Cooper S and the Countryman crossover, edited in the style of JCW. Under the hood, hatch and convertible two-liter 192-horsepower engine, a Countryman with a mellow exhaust sound demonstrates potential in his 231-HP engine. The funny thing is that all of these machines provided a low-driving, Green…

MINI JCW sample of 2018 got a new eight-speed automatic, all-led optics (and the lights are now made in the form of the British flag, the system of sports management and a special exhaust tailpipes – beveled, clearly recognizable.

No matter how good and dynamic, the updated MINI, but drive them at “the Seagull” was the only warm-up a warm-up before a meeting with two representatives of a glorious family of BMW M. we have a M4 coupe in the performance of CS and M5 sedan Competition – it’s a classic M-genre.

CS M4 coupe has recently received a number of interesting innovations. It sports a Launch Control system, providing powerful surge of acceleration from the start, the M differential that responds to wheel slip during 0.15 s, gearbox Drivelogic – double clutch robot with two clutches. Motor sports has a new turbocharger and an upgraded control unit. As a result, power and torque has increased from 370 HP and 465 Nm to 410 HP and 550 Nm, and this, in turn, reduced acceleration to 200 km/h from 11.3 to 10 seconds.

About M5 Competition, perhaps, too vividly tell the numbers. Power increased from 600 to 625 HP, the 680 Nm to 750. And now hurricane sedan exchanged first hundred in 3.3 with instead of 4.3. Acceleration literally dark eyes, like a fighter pilot!

All the German model is already available for order in Ukraine.
