Superchips tunes the Mini Cooper S |

The Mini Cooper S provides some of the best fun you can have on a small little car without stepping into a kart. But even though its performance figures are quite impressive: 175 HP and 187 lb-ft of torque, there is always room for improvement.

A such the team at Superchips decided to tweak around with the ECU of the British city car, improving things like the ignition timing, or the fueling and turbo boost parameters, in order to squeeze every last horse from the BMW 1.6-liter turbocharged engine.

The result? 195 HP and 206 lb-ft (282 Nm) of torque, which are mostly available from 2,500 to 5,250 rpm. This basic performance package costs around €500 ($700), and comes with a warranty good for 12 months or 30,000 miles.
