Introducing the Fastest MINI Convertible Yet: 2016 MINI JCW Convertible

What makes the 2016 MINI John Cooper Works convertible so much different than the 2015 version? Well, for starters, the 2016 MINI JCW convertible has a 2.0-Liter, four cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and goes from 0 – 60 mph in only 6.3 seconds. Maxing out at about 150 mph, this convertible can really get the wind whipping through your hair.

The 2016 JCW Convertible has a sleek cloth soft top that can open and close in 18 seconds at speeds up to 18 mph. So, if the rain warning system this MINI convertible is equipped with tells you of an upcoming storm, you can close the roof in a hurry. Of course, once the roof is closed, you will still enjoy the drive with the 6.5-inch infotainment system, dual-zone climate control, and optional heated seats that are perfect for our cold Pittsburgh mornings.

We expect to be able to have the John Cooper Works convertible available for you in April with a base price of just under $36,000.  Come talk to our MINI experts to learn more about the fastest MINI Convertible to date.
