Seen it quoted in magazines anyware from 8.8 seconds to 9.3 seconds. I would like to think that it will be under 9 but am probably just kidding myself. Not that I plan to race anybody but in terms of getting off at the lights, how does it compare with other cars of similar 0-60 times?

not really worried about the 0-60 times but bring on the twisties :D.. saying that .. it takes quite a lot to leave me at the lights in the wifes Cooper :p... even if i get left behind the exhaust note and filter make up for it ;)

wot modifications have you done to yer coop??:)
He'll need a jet engine on that bad boy to get to 60 in 5 secs :D

People tend to moan about the MINI's speed off the line but I think the MC is quite impressive for a 115bhp car. I find that first gear in the MC is very similar to my MCS up until about 30 mph.

9.2 is the best i've managed I dought anyone with a stock car could get under 9, and tbh the 0-60 time imo is not a very good performance figure, i'd say to focus more on the 0-100 time if the 1/4 can not be found. And btw the 0-100 is pathetic! nearly 30 seconds which is pretty bad seeing as it takes another 21 seconds from 60-100!

my 0-60's range from 8.95 sec (15" wheels in winter 38 deg F)
to 9.75 sec (16" wheels, full tank summer 78 deg F).

If my physics is correct, 0-60 off a cliff should be about 2.73 seconds
assuming a clean instant drop and no air resistance.
