FifthGear takes the 2007 Mini Cooper S out for a road test. This “all-new” model sports a turbocharged 1.6L engine that generates 175hp @ 5500rpm and 177 ft-lb @ 1600rpm. Video after the jump.

The engine is boosted in power by means of a twin-scroll turbocharger driven by the separate emission flow from two cylinders at a time. As a result, the turbocharger serves to boost engine power significantly from low engine speeds, providing a truly impressive effect…the MINI Cooper S accelerates the car with the kind of power and performance otherwise to be found only in much larger normal-aspiration models
