MINI HAS TODAY announced the showroom launch of the MINI John Cooper Works Cabrio.

The turbocharged drop-top is not just the third model in the John Cooper Works range, but the brand's fastest convertible, capable of storming to 100km/h in 6.9 seconds.

MINI claims the John Cooper Works Cabrio - first unveiled at this year's Geneva Motor Show - is one of the quickest-accelerating convertibles available in the sub-$100,000 bracket.

Power is provided by the same 155kW turbocharged inline four used by the MINI John Cooper Works and MINI John Cooper Works Clubman, with an 'overboost' function unlocking a full 280Nm of torque.


Like the rest of the MINI JCW range, power is sent to the front wheels via a strengthened six-speed manual gearbox.

Sports suspension, an electronic limited-slip system, traction control and stability control assist the JCW Cabrio's on-road performance.

The MINI JCW Cabrio features sports seats trimmed in fabric and leather, piano black dash trim, climate control, a Harmon Kardon audio system, 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels, tinted windows and MINI's trademark bonnet stripes.

Being a Cabrio, MINI's newest addition is fitted with the "Always Open" timer - a device which logs the amount of time spent with the roof down.


Although positioned as a performance model within MINI's lineup, the John Cooper Works Cabrio boasts an admirable fuel consumption rating of 7.1 litres per 100km.

Starting from $56,900 before on-road costs, the 2010 MINI John Cooper Works is available now.
