exhaust 'popping' sound

Just bought 57 Cooper S ragtop - well impressed. Previous was Audi quattro TT 225bhp but this Mini is just as quick. Love the whining of the twin turbo and am suprised to hear the twin exhaust note popping when lifting off.....is this normal (I'm not complaining - simply curious)

I'd expect a factory standard car not to pop, but any of the following could cause the popping:

Exhaust is damaged or leaking
ECU is dumping too much fuel in
Or you've got an aftermarket exhaust fitted

The Convertible didn't get a (twin-scroll) turbo until the 2009 model year
