F56 JCW Tuning Kit in the raw

Check out this video showcasing the latest F56 MINI Cooper S JCW exhaust (aka JCW Tuning Kit) with nothing but the pure engine note.

How do they make it sound like a MINI Challenge race car? Well, by using your phone of course! Like everything these days it’s bluetooth enabled.

From the comfort of your leather lined cockpit your phone can open a butterfly valve in the right hand exhaust pipe. With the valve closed all of the exhaust goes through the muffler and it sounds like the standard Cooper S.

Open that valve and the exhaust can bypass the muffler, letting the MINI shout out to the world the full glorious sound of the 2 litre turbocharged engine.
