The Mini John Cooper Works hatchback is a pretty fantastic car. 231hp, aggressive bodykit and millions of spec options.
But some BOTB players prefer more – more bespoke, more performance, more style... and that’s where Mulgari come in.
They’ve been tuning and personalising cars for a while now and have recently turned their attention to the Mini JCW with their Icon02. First up they tune the engine to produce 280hp (in a Mini!) with an ECU remap and larger intercooler.
Next they get on with the mechanicals – a 30mm suspension drop, uprated bushes, braided brake lines and lightweight 18” alloy wheels. Then it’s time for the visuals with a new front splitter and rear diffuser, tinted rear lights and slash-cut 90mm exhaust tips, while the bodywork gets all the trim painted in an accent colour along with the brake calipers and interior parts. When you add all these bits together the Icon 2 is a seriously good looking Mini, with epic performance and a real bespoke design.
But wait! There's more! For 2020 Mulgari are offering a (frankly insane) 310hp upgrade kit for their Icon02, which drops the 0-62mph time and improves acceleration right throughout the rev range.
The best Mini just got a whole lot better! Win one in the ultimate Dream Car competition here at BOTB.
