Mini Clubman John Cooper Works From Garda Lake to Livigno

The new Mini JCW Clubman is prêt-à-porter-fun for every moment of your day. The classic Mini tuned by John Cooper is now a grown up: whether you still want to enjoy the distinctive go-kart feeling on a twisty road or enjoy yourselves on the way to the grocery store, the new Clubman may be of your taste.
Why commuting couldn’t also be enjoyable and be an opportunity to discover the local area, maybe taking the long way home? Since every JCW is tuned for the kind of roads that every driving enthusiast loves: after all, you can recharge your batteries with some adrenaline!
At a mere glance, the John Cooper Works badge is a guarantee of the firepower at your disposal under the bonnet. 231 horses and four wheel drive seem already sufficient to describe an excellent mid-sized performance daily driver: the extended wheel base of the Clubman over the regular Mini not only guarantees a bigger trunk space but also a more predictable handling.
The Clubman is geared for proper escapes: what better occasion to drive it from the shores of the Lake Garda to the snowy roads of Livigno? Thanks to the grip offered by the All4 system you can control the car with ease in every situation. Secure but highly addictive drifts are possible once you turn the traction control off, making this Mini a perfect compromise for sportiness and practicality. The WRC style exhaust popcorn evokes the times when the Works’ Coopers won the Monte Carlo Rallies back in the 1960ies.
On tarmac, the Clubman JCW maintains a neutral behaviour, with a slight but reassuring understeer at the corner entry, which can be easily suppressed by lifting the throttle.
Practicality and fun are two things that not always generate a good compromise: after all, we can still have fun even by growing up.

Many Thanks to Nanni Nember
