Auto123 reviews the 2022 Mini John Cooper Works convertible.
There's no need to introduce the Mini, a car with a rich, varied and sometimes glorious history. But we’ll do it anyways:
The first little car to bear the name was created in 1959 by John Cooper and Alexandre Issigonis. It immediately stood out because of its size (small) and shape (boxy), but also for its rally exploits. John Cooper, a driver and also a tuner, was intrigued by its very low centre of gravity and its handling. He began modifying it, and pretty soon the Mini was a rally champion.
At the time, its 998-cc engine produced 55 hp and could reach 140 km/h - enough to make a name for itself, let's say.
