The MINI Cooper S Clubman is certainly doing something right on the business end with the launch contributing to record sales for the MINI brand. But at 170hp, surely it is missing something.
The John Cooper Works kit went some way to appeasing the power hungry consumers with a package boosting the power up to 211bhp, but AC Schnitzer had other ideas with their own package which boosts the Clubman up to 226hp.
Hiding beneath the eye catching body kit which features a new front spoiler and a striking power dome is the 226hp/166KW AC Schnitzer tuned engine which develops up to 285nm of torque.
But where there is power – there is noise. So to appease the neighbours, the famed BMW & Mini Tuner has fitted their twin sports rear silencer which plays its role in the orchestral masterpiece coming from chromed tailpipes. Driving performance is further enhanced with the AC Schnitzer spring kit and height-adjustable racing suspension
Optionally you can add the limited slip differential (up to maximum 75 percent) which ensures the raw power is applied to the right wheel through cornering rather than being lost through the exhaust.
The kit is completed with either 17” or 18” wheels, specially designed for the Mini.
