Mac Audio MINI Clubman S


German manufacturer of amplifiers and loudspeakers, Mac Audio has customized a MINI Clubman S as their unique show car.
Dressed with a John Cooper Works body kit and a matte white exterior, power has been modestly increased to 230 PS (169 kW / 227 bhp), compared to 184 PS (135 kW / 181 bhp) for standard version, courtesy of a Wimmer Rennsporttechnik's ECU upgrade, modified exhaust system and optimized air intake pipes.
Unsprung chassis components have been enhanced by 8x18 Oxigin rims with 215/35-18 Yokohama Advan Sports tires and Stoptech four-piston high performance brake system while sprung components include KW Variant 1 coilovers. Inside, Sportster Recaro CS-seats top off the performance package.
While that's all nice and dandy, Mac Audio put their true talents into an audio installation that includes:
  • 12 sq meters of Dynamat Xtreme insulating material
  • Mac Audio Star X 2.16 front and rear loudspeakers system in modified door panels
  • Handmade 90-liter bass enclosure equipped with 3 x Mac Audio STX Reference-Woofers
  • 6 Micro X Series amplifiers with the maximum capacity of 3,900 Watts
  • Extra batteries, buffer capacitors and cabling by Stinger
  • Audiovox VME 9325BTA head unit with navigation control using iPod, iPhone, USB, DVB-T and Bluetooth via touchscreen
A visual highlight includes amplifiers mounted in the headliner where they stand out over a giant mirror in the trunk floor.

Press release:


MINI GOES LOUD!
The new BMW-built edition of MINI, the British cult compact car, can be spotted on our streets with different body modifications. The Clubman, first presented in 2007 at the International Automobile Exhibition, was awarded with the Red Dot Design Award for its concept only a year after its release.
Mac Audio, manufacturers of amplifiers and loudspeakers, has customized Mini Clubman S, the most powerful version, into a unique Showcar.
The exterior of Mac Audio Mini radiates the glow with its new matte white special color. The previous quite sporty car appearance has been emphasized by John Cooper Works Bodykit. Thanks to the professionals on the Wimmer Rennsporttechnik team, the Mini features impressive 230 HP due to adjusted engine electronic system, a modified exhaust system and optimized air intake pipes.
To reap the fruits of this enormous performance potential on the streets, the Mac Audio Mini rolls on the tire/wheel combination of 15-inch Oxigin rims, 8' x 18' wheels (also painted in white with use of special coating) and 215/35-18 Yokohama Advan Sports tires . The Stoptech four-piston high performance brake system, the KW coilovers Variant 1 in Inox and the Sportster Recaro CS-seats convincingly top off the performance package.
Mac Audio put the greatest emphasis, however, on the interior of its Showcar. Here the job was entirely done by the company's own Professional Installation Team headed by Nic K├Ânig.
12m2 of Dynamat Xtreme insulating material was used in order to eliminate vibration and rattling. Installation experts have mounted Mac Audio Star X 2.16 front and rear loudspeakers system in the modified door panels. This sophisticated job has resulted in brilliant high tone playback, clear midtones and a springy kickbass. The handmade 90-liter bass enclosure equipped with 3 x Mac Audio STX Reference-Woofers makes the Showcar quake and guarantees a real feeling of music. The 6 Micro X Series amplifiers with the maximum capacity of 3,900 Watt have enough sound in store for any musical taste. A visual highlight has been created by mounting the amplifiers in the headliner where they dramatically stand out over a giant mirror in the trunk floor. Extra batteries, buffer capacitors and cabling by Stinger provide ideal connection. The brain of the whole system is the Audiovox VME 9325BTA Head unit which enables the user to control navigation using iPod, iPhone, USB, DVB-T and Bluetooth by touchscreen. Perfect visual integration of audio components and an exclusive interior combination of leather and Alcantara puts the Mac Audio Mini way ahead of the series base model.
Being on the road in this four-wheel rocker is ... sheer joy.
