MINI Countryman 150° Anniversario by Romeo Ferraris

In honor of the 150 th year dellunità thimbles dazzurro Romeo Ferraris and determination as the most adventurous of the Cooper S: most powerful (+43 hp, +88 Nm) and aggressive with the new exhaust WRC replica

Lital celebrates its 150 years of unity and opaque blue livery of the new Mini Countryman by Romeo Ferraris is a clear homage to a historical event so important. Only an occasion to present a full program of mechanical and styling changes that transform the sporty Cooper S Countryman unaggressiva adventurer who happily took the track.

NOTHING IS LIKE YOU After the blue matte painting, the first aesthetic difference that you notice immediately compared to the standard are the exclusive Countryman headlights with black background made from specially Romeo Ferraris with a special process which guarantees perfect sealing and protecting them from any phenomenon internal condensation. All details like the grille, side frames and badges were also painted in graphite color to draw the circles OZ Racing III Ultralight 19-inch Yokohama Advan Sport tires in size from 225/40R19. I am looking for very special, forged and broken down into three pieces, the weight and the external canal painted in blue. ? For the roof we find the same painting chrome used for the 500 Abarth Anniversary, celebrating 52 years of activity of Romeo Ferraris emphasized by chrome racing stripes on the hood and tailgate, and the mirror caps to match. On request you can have custom caps with the flag of the Italian flag. The interior has been upholstered in leather with contrast stitching color ice blue, embellished with a blue piping along Linter seat and the headrest frame, where we find Sagittarius embroidered in blue thread, the symbol of Opera Factory from 1959. The call is again highlighted by the flag allItalia leather stitched on the back.

DISCHARGE FROM WRC The Countryman Cooper S is powered by the top of the Mini range, the 1.6 Turbo 184 hp direct-injection, and always ready with a big stretch. Lottima base has allowed the technicians of Romeo Ferraris to further improve the response of the engine with the new control and optimization of a series of interventions that have significantly increased their horses to a height of +43 and +88 Nm torque available up to ( manual transmission version). Have in fact been installed plus a new intercooler and a full sports exhaust system with catalytic converter downpipe includes 200 cells, a central terminal and two (right / left). Just the two terminals are one of the many distinctive elements of this production. Have been developed by Romeo Ferraris and reproduce perfectly the design of the terminals of the Mini Countryman WRC race, engaged in the World Rally. They can be installed on any Countryman and no changes are required to exploit the rear bumper as standard housings. In addition, the new exhaust system lowers the relative temperature of the gas and, thanks to the reduction of pressure, reduce consumption, heel dAchille identified by many owners of the Mini SUV.

DYNAMIC SPORTS The main shortcoming of the Countryman standard for all those who use it mostly in the city is to adjust limpossibilità laltezza ground. At Romeo Ferraris have decided to allow everyone to enjoy the convenience of a compact SUV without giving up a low stance, which certainly gives the car a more aggressive look, and significantly improves the dynamic qualities. The advantage of the solution adopted by the technicians of the fully adjustable Romeo Ferraris is the possibility to choose between different settings (up to -50 mm than the height of a series), if necessary, allow to raise again the car, for example anticipation of a trip on dirt roads, with a rapid intervention in the workshop. For the most demanding were also developed new ties back to adjust the camber of the wheels at the rear, which allow you to customize the behavior of the car. ? The new front brakes Brembo custom-made based on the specific demands of Romeo Ferraris is composed floating cross-drilled discs (if available slotted) from 328 mm in diameter with 4 piston calipers. A specific product that ensures maximum braking performance and is available for all Cooper S. Countryman

ROAD AND TRACK The ‘lower stance contributes to a more responsive engine and the Countryman “vitamins” pushes even at low revs, with unottima shooting and a stretch even more pronounced. The Anniversary 150 is a lot of fun to ride and the safety (on the track) is the highest level through increased Brembo brake allimpianto immediately stops the car. One older sister (in size) that has nothing to envy to the “small” plague Cooper S with regard to driving dynamics and performance, with the advantage of being able to face even more dirt roads, and exploit the available torque of engineers after lintervento Romeo Ferraris. All the products that make the Mini Countryman lallestimento 150 Anniversary sold separately and are suitable for all Cooper S. Countryman The only optimization of the unit allows you to gain 34 hp and 76 Nm on the manual version, 23 bhp and 55 Nm on the automatic version. He is currently being developed that will allow an oversized turbine to increase horsepower and torque, with an overall increase (with exhaust and ECU included) of about 61 hp and 102 Nm of torque (manual transmission version).
