Steve Moody takes his first drive in the 2011 MINI Coupe JCW for Car. He is rather critical of some aspects of the vehicle but rends this verdict:
Pricey, but spicy. The Mini Coupe, and the JCW version in particular, distills everything we love about MINI into its purest form yet, without a lot of the stagey, branding stuff. At last, another Mini for the real enthusiast.
