Mini has today announced the new Carbon Edition of its five-door Cooper S hatch is now available to order, with a limited run of just 40 units to be available in Australia.

Priced from $56,900 driveaway, the all-black Carbon Edition boasts a host of interior extras and performance upgrades as well as the unique black bodywork with carbon-fibre touches.

Mini JCW Carbon According to Mini Australia’s Tony Sesto, it’s about mixing the practicality of the five-door hatch with the firm’s well known high-performance capabilities.

“It’s the ideal stepping stone for the customer who revels in extra performance, but also seeks a flexible and comfortable daily driver,” he said.

Achieved by adding top-shelf components and tuning from the firm’s racing arm – John Cooper Works (JCW) – the Carbon Edition boasts sports seats; a leather perforated steering wheel; gearshift lever and armrests, as well as stainless steel pedals and a navigation system with a 8.8-inch screen on the inside. A rear spoiler as well as bonnet scoop, mirrors and muffler caps — all made from carbon fibre — make up the JCW aerodynamics package applied to the exterior.

There’s a dual-mode sports exhaust which is operated via a bluetooth remote, a six-speed automatic gearbox with steering-wheel mounted paddle-shift functionality, but it’s under the bonnet that the JCW treatment comes into its own. The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine gains both more torque (20Nm) and power (14kW) over the standard Mini Cooper S model, which sees output capabilities rise to 155kW and 300Nm respectively.

The car’s look is completed by lightweight JCW alloy wheels and edition-specific carbon decals applied to the front doors.
