When Mini launched the new Cooper in 2001 it set a new benchmark for the segment. It was fast, great handling, fun and had great styling which meant that sales went through the roof and continued right through the second-generation model which was sold worldwide to great success. But times change and now we’re on the third generation of Mini hatchback. Before the Cooper S used to be the top dog, then they added a JCW pack – the John Cooper Works pack – named after the legendary Mini rally driver. Now the JCW is its own model sitting at the top of the regular production model tree (there’s a limited GP at the very top usually) and what a car it is. Still fairly diminutive by modern hatchback standards, the JCW packs a 228bhp punch thanks to the four-cylinder turbo petrol engine, which means 0-62mph is dealt with in 6.3 seconds on the way to a 146mph top speed – not bad for a little hot hatch! But the really impressive thing is the way this JCW tackles a set of twisty bends – it’s such huge fun you’ll be turning around just to drive them again.
