The Mini Cooper S is a car renowned for its charismatically playful handling and retro appearance. Over time the car has evolved from the classic we know and love from the past, and has managed to retain much the same general figure and stature as the original (although substantially larger), but with modern creature comforts suitable for this day in age. All of this hasn’t even come at a cost to the classic ‘go kart’ handling, with the little beast flaunting lively steering that engages the driver at all times.
Obviously this killer combo of looks and handling has won the hearts of many, as the sight of these machines on the road is a common occurrence. Taking you up to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds, the Mini is able to zip about all thanks to its 168hp 4-cylinder motor. Someone who own the S version of the Mini Cooper more than likely appreciates the handling and looks of the standard, but preferred the S due to the addition of the sportier traits, such as the intake on the bonnet, and a faster 0-100 time. Well, those same individuals may also appreciate a product from Milltek’s exhaust range. Check it out.
This exhaust system totally enhances the ‘small dog big bark’ characteristics of the Mini, giving it that raspy burble at low revs, and a chirpy blast of exhaust at high revs. One of the great features of this exhaust is the fact that it doesn’t produce an irritating drone that can get nauseating on long journeys, something a lot of ricers would die for. Fans have adored this exhaust system, giving it nothing but praise, and it is easy to see why.
