You may not be Jürgen Schmarl. And you may not be the 2012 MINI Trophy Champion. You may not even be a contestant in the MINI John Cooper Works Coupe Endurance Race. But, you could, however, feel as if you are any of these by owning the 2013 MINI Coupe.
Dealerships across the country are waiting in anticipation for the arrival of the 2013 MINI Coupe. For such a small car, it has created quite the hype. It truly is a standard-setter in the segment of premium small-cars.
The 2013 MINI Coupe offers three different trims—the Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works—each with a 1.6-liter engine, delivering anywhere from 121- to 208-horsepower and 121 to 192 lb-ft. of torque. The Cooper S and the John Cooper Works both have a turbocharged engine. In addition, there is the option between a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, available for the first time on the John Cooper Works.
Zero to 60 in 8.8 seconds, topping out at 149 miles per hour, and delivering 29 miles per gallon city and 37 miles per gallon highway, this two-passenger, two-door ride creates a Go-Kart feel, both on the racetrack and the every-day roads.
It is flashy yet athletic and offers precise handling, reliable stability, and a sporty interior.
To become a champion, the 38-year-old Austrian, Schmarl, would agree that it is all about the engineering of the car, down to the very last detail. Although you may not have the intention to win a race, the features of the 2013 MINI Coupe could still make you feel like a champion every day that you drive it.
And, maybe you’re not concerned with aerodynamics and weight distribution to optimize the speed at which you take corners on the track. However, such attributes of the 2013 MINI Coupe could contribute to the safety and performance of your ride.
MINI of Pittsburgh is anxiously anticipating the arrival of the 2013 MINI Coupe at their Pennsylvania dealership located on 4900 Baum Blvd. Interested buyers may call ahead at 877.299.9045 to schedule a test drive.
