MINI Cooper JCW by CoverEFX - 07.2.2011

Probably cheaper than a Louis Vuitton handbag

CoverEFX has unveiled a new styling and performance package for the MINI Cooper JCW.

On the design front, the tuner added a Louis Vuitton-inspired wrap with imitation black leather and gold metallic accents. Other goodies include matte gold trim, a lowered KW suspension, and 17-inch alloy wheels with Toyo tires.

Under the hood, the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine can be outfitted with two performance packages. The Stage 1 features an optimized ECU, a sport exhaust system and a high-flow air filter. Thanks to these tweaks, the four-cylinder produces 236 PS (174 kW / 232 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.

For more power, the Stage 2 package has a short-throw shifter and a revised ECU. The latter item enables the engine to crank out 252 PS (185 kW / 249 hp) and 382 Nm (282 lb-ft) of torque.

Mini Cooper Works by CoverEFX with 252 HP

It is highly gratifying to see what come up with different interpretations of the MINI the tuning industry is capable of. Each tuner highlights various key points, from adequate wheel / tire combinations and specific color schemes using different methods for engine performance optimization.

The well-known vehicle tuner, CoverEFX company from Erftstadt, combined both of the above "key points" and thus killed two birds with one stone.

There is a fully foil-finished body in black leather style and the imitation of the second rim coloring, also in matt gold metallic, gazes in wonder at CFC. The CFC premium foil with special adhesive technology from Erftstadt professionals ensures easy wrap with a bubble-free mounting and has an extremely long shelf life.

In addition, thousands of small gold specimens were glued individually by hand on the dark leather- style foil or foil with textured surface!

CoverEFX offers additional services to the engine of 211 hp / 280 Nm series in two stages: Stage 1 involves software optimization to 236 HP and 350 Nm, installation of 2.5-inch exhaust system with Milltek downpipe, sports catalyst and extra large sports air filter. Stage 2 provides again corrected software and no modifications in other "ingredients" with 252 hp and maximum torque of 382 Nm. The respective software adjustments relate to all involved components and passed the performance tests.
In addition, the features include reduction in shifter travel (Shifter in WorxRacing Position).

A wheel / tire combination of matte black and matte gold metallic OZ LM rims called Wave 7x17 ET37 with Toyo R888 84W tires 205/40 R17 and stainless steel KW Variant 3 suspension maintain the road adherence.

The wide-open door on the driver's side invites any viewers to sit down and - more or less - to turn round...

 M! M!
wcf got it right in the title. "CHEAP!!!!" is what this is. if it were 5+ years ago, when the first LV decaled cars were done by individuals, those were cool at the time. Any respectable LV owners would not imitate the brand like this.

This is unbelievably awful. It could have carried some credence by being an actual LV sanctioned car. But nope, it's a cheap facsimile. Actually the only luxury brand/car tie-in I've liked is the Hermes Veyron. The unofficial Versace Lambo was tasteless too. Can we have a Jaguar 2 seater coupe with Mulberry interior please?
