This F56 MINI Cooper S (aka Dory) has become the latest member of the Lohen fleet. Bought in December 2018, she has since made her first show debut at Autosport 2019. Modified as a fast road car we wanted to show off the best of the best, our team set out to add some of the best performance parts available on the MINI market to her.
The aim with our entire demonstrator fleet is to create MINIs that inspire and importantly ones that you can come and drive to understand the differences these modifications and changes made. With the focus strongly on performance we set out to install parts that would really show this F56 off, so we started by installing our Ghost Spec.
We fitted a Tarox Sport Big Brake Kit to Dory and opted for a gold caliper option to really make her pop. This brake kit uses a 6-pot caliper rather than the 4 piston OEM variety. This ensures a firm but modulated brake pedal feel and helps to ensure a high level of performance under both street and track conditions. We wanted to combine performance and sound as well so turned to the Remus Exhaust valved cat back system to provide a wonderfully deep sporty note.
Originally bought in a deep red colour, we decided to wrap her so she stood out next to our other red demo car known as Chilli. The wrap was completed in house and the colours chosen give an unintentional nod to the R53 Checkmate. As always wheels were a huge talking point in the office, they had to look good as well as lightweight and high performance, so after much deliberation we chose the OZ Racing Hyper GT wheels.
