If you want your Mini to deliver "extreme driving pleasure," these will do the trick.

Mini is at the Essen Motor Show these days in Germany with the John Cooper Works equipped with an optional valve exhaust silencer system lending the car a more aggressive tone. It also has a coilover suspension adjustable in height between 10 and 30 millimeters (0.4 to 1.1 inches).

The Mini range is now available with an extended array of lightweight alloy wheels in 17- and 18-inch sizes offered in a multitude of designs. Buyers are also able to opt for upgraded brakes with four-piston fixed front calipers combined with perforated and grooved discs, while at the rear axle there are one-piston floating calipers and all of the brake calipers come painted in red.

Mini is also offering a JCW-branded aerodynamic package, along with a carbon fiber look for the air inlet cover and the side mirror caps. There are even optional mounts for GoPro cameras, along with side stripes and stickers to let everyone know you’re not driving a run-of-the-mill Mini.

An assortment of accessories is available for the interior as well where there’s a leather-wrapped sporty steering wheel and an equally sporty gearshift lever knob featuring a leather and chrome combo. Textile and all-weather floor mats can be specified as well, along with LED door sill finishes and other miscellaneous tweaks.

More importantly, the JCW catalog includes a power hike for the Cooper S Convertible as well as for the three- and five-door S hatchbacks bumping output by 19 hp (14 kW) to 211 hp (155 kW).

Mini will have some of the new upgrades on display at the Essen Motor Show until December 4. For the sportiest version of them all, we will have to until around the end of the decade when a new JCW GP will be out with more power, less weight, and other mechanical upgrades over the regular JCW model on sale today. As the model before it, the new JCW GP will likely end up as a limited-run special edition.
