2007 Mini Cooper and Cooper S
The new Cooper S dumps last year’s supercharger in favor of a twin-scroll turbocharger putting out 11.6 psi of boost. It produces 175 hp, only four percent more than the current model, but torque increases dramatically. Mini claims peak torque of 177 lb-ft from a superlow 1600 rpm all the way to 5000 rpm. If the engine computer is feeling generous, however, it will grant you a few seconds of overboost, pushing that torque number to a more grin-inducing 192 lb-ft. With all that torque, the optional limited-slip differential seems like a good idea – especially if you want to be sure to leave two dark skid marks wherever you go. (Spinning just one wheel is embarrassing, don’t you know.)
