PENNY – GENERATION 2 R56 MINI COOPER S

WE TOOK THIS GENERATION 2 COOPER S UNDER OUR WING AFTER IT SUFFERED AN ENGINE FAILURE AND, FOLLOWING A REBUILD, SHE QUICKLY BECAME A DEPENDABLE LOHEN DEMONSTRATOR.

She's had a tough life but we won't hold that against her. The early days of Penny's life saw a failed engine and troublesome mapping solution until Lohen took ownership of the vehicle. Now used as a demonstrator and courtesy car, she's running a Manic Motorsport Stage 1 remap to help keep the smile on your face.

After being a reliable courtesy car for a few years, Lohen has taken her off the rental road and made subtle adjustments to make her a worthy show car for the everyday MINI owner. In 2017 Lohen decided to improve upon it's interior with the help of Cobra Seats by having the entire interior retrimmed including dash panels. With a subtle but much improved black leather and grey Alcantara combination, sitting in this 2007 MINI R56 felt like being in a new car again.

In 2018 Lohen partnered with RSI C6 who specialise in MINI styling and carbon fibre. This allowed Lohen to tweak our MINI R56 exterior with a G wing rear fibreglass spoiler and carbon fibre scoop cover that added to its already aggressive styling from its OZ Ultraleggera wheels.
