VIDEO: MINI JCW speed racing with Toyota GR Yaris. Recently, the MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works (JCW) had a “confrontation” with the Toyota GR Yaris at the Hockenheim GP racetrack.
When asked the reason for choosing the MINI JCW over the more powerful JCW GP, SportAuto shared that, since the top model of the JCW GP line-up only uses semi-slick tires and that would be unfair, because all vehicles participants must use normal rubber tires.
So, the hot hatch model from the UK will use 17-inch wheels with 205/45 Pirelli P Zero tires, a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, 228 hp and 320 Nm of torque. . Combining a six-speed manual transmission, the MINI JCW model completed the track in 2: 03.8 time. In this version, Cooper S JCW takes 6.3 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h, and will be several tenths of a second faster if using an eight-speed automatic transmission.
With the GR Yaris model, the car uses 18-inch wheels and 225/40 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, the acceleration time to 100 km / h is less than 5.5 seconds, and the maximum speed electronic limit is 230. km / h. The European version of the car has a capacity of 257 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque, produced by a 1.6-liter 3-cylinder engine, four-wheel transmission via a 6-speed manual transmission.
Thus, although the same is a small hot hatch, MINI JCW and Toyota Yaris GR operate quite differently. Watch the video together to discover the winner of the race.
