A SMALL ESTATE is unusual, but one with barn doors at the back really is wacky. That’s as true now as it was in 1960, when the original Mini estate appeared. But then you couldn’t have that car with a 302bhp turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.

So, the recipient of this, the oddball Clubman John Cooper Works (JCW), can’t be pigeonholed. Thanks to its compactness and a massive 74bhp power boost, though, it’s now most comparableto today’s cohort of incredible circa-300bhp hot hatchbacks.
