E-commerce has taken over our lives, from books to mobiles to clothes; everything is just a few clicks away. Now we can even buy cars and bikes online. The MINI Cooper S Carbon Edition has just been added to the list for a price tag of Rs 39.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi)! This is the first Mini which can be bought online and here is the link www.amazon.in/mini.
The Mini Cooper S Carbon Edition is available exclusively on Amazon India as a Completely Built-Up unit (CBU). The Carbon Edition combines the Cooper S model with a John Cooper Works Tuning Kit, and accessories. BMW claims that the tuning kit helps improve the performance of the car and gives it a racy feel.

For a tad under 40 lakhs, six lakhs more than the standard edition, you get a carbon fibre finished power unit! The 2.0 litre TwinPower turbo churning out 210 bhp between 4500 to 6000 rpm combined with peak torque of 300 Nm between 1250 to 4600 rpm. That’s an improvement of 18 bhp over the normal Mini Cooper and one gets 20 Nm of extra torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
A 0 to 100 kmph sprint takes 6.5 second.
Mr. Frank Schloeder, President (act.), BMW Group India said:

The Mini Cooper S Carbon Edition is a pretty safe car. Standard safety equipment comprises of front and passenger airbags, 3-point seat belts, ABS, Dynamic Stability Control, crash sensor and cornering brake control.
