MINI's Clubman is the latest car to reveal a powerful new upgrade, coming in the form of the John Cooper Works Clubman.

With 230bhp and 350Nm of torque, the 2.0-litre turbo petrol JCW Clubman is the most powerful version of the car ever built, capable of reaching 62mph in 6.3 seconds and able to power on to a top speed of 148mph.

Fitted with MINI's four-wheel-drive ALL4 system, it is capable of impressive traction no matter what the conditions, as well as giving consumers a decent amount of practicality alongside the performance.

Despite the high-powered nature of the JCW Clubman, it is still able to return good economy figures, emitting just 154g/km CO2 and able to achieve up to 41.5mpg on a combined cycle.

It also benefits from styling tweaks that give it a more purposeful look on the road. The front of the car features a redesigned bumper which helps direct more air to the engine, helping cooling. At the rear sits a similarly-modelled rear bumper section, as well as a large wing. Unique alloy wheels sit at all four corners, while the entire car can be specified with an optional 'Rebel Green' colour.

Inside, the changes are just as comprehensive. Sports seats are fitted, along with an alcantara headliner. Standard equipment also includes satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control.

The MINI John Cooper Works Clubman, which makes its debut at the Paris Motor Show on Saturday, is available to order now, priced from £29,345 for the six-speed manual version and £30,945 for cars fitted with the eight-speed automatic transmission.
