Mini will equip its new Coupé model with its most powerful petrol and diesel engines, with JCW and Cooper SD variants offered from launch.

All elements of the two-seater have been engineered for “optimum performance”, according to Mini. To that end, the Coupé gets a unique chassis set-up, bodywork and interior over the cabriolet it is based on, as well as BMW”s latest generation of four-cylinder engines.

Top-spec JCW and Cooper SD models will also be joined by Cooper and Cooper S model in the range that will reach UK showrooms later this year after a Frankfurt show debut in September.

The JCW version is powered by a turbocharged 208bhp/192lb ft 1.6-litre petrol engine that helps propel it from 0-62mph in just 6.4sec. The turbocharged 181bhp/177lb ft Cooper S and normally aspirated 120bhp/118lb ft Cooper models are also powered by a 1.6-litre petrol unit.

The Cooper SD gets a turbocharged 141bhp/225lb ft 2.0-litre diesel, which offers 7.9sec 0-62mph performance as well as 65.7mpg combined economy and 114g/km CO2 emissions.
