The loss of the supercharger on the Cooper S means a serious change to the soundtrack we’ve all grown accustom to. However the new Cooper S has a sound all its own that may prove almost as intoxicating. Obviously this clip is a bit processed (and undoubtedly recorded in studio-like conditions) but we’re told this is indeed the new 1.6L MINI engine. The clip was original available as part of a movie on the site and now can be found on the French MINI site
