SpeedSportLife Highlights The MINI JCW Hardtop

John Kucek drives the MINI John Cooper Works Hardtop for SpeedSportLife and concludes:
. . . MINI is as MINI does, and if you’re on board with the styling, this brand’s all about fun. Buyers seeking a rounded, jack-of-all-trades car that possesses a duality of character like the VW GTI won’t be interested; the Cooper hardtop, particularly in JCW form, just wants to party from stoplight to stoplight. It’s a veritable theme park ride for the streets, albeit a pricey one, that appeals mostly to the young or young at heart.
