driving home this afternoon and i was having a play with Mini Connected which i haven't used for a while. I selected the Driving Excitement app & brought up the sports instruments which display bhp & engine revs.

on a straight steady climb up a dual carriageway in full sport mode in my S Auto i floored the accelerator & let it go. The bhp meter climbed quickly straight to 189 & held there for a couple of seconds & then to my amazement climbed to 197 & then to 222bhp before i had to start winding down!

i'm pretty sure 189bhp is the published max power of the F56 S but is it possible that it has more than that or is the app getting over excited? i've no idea where the app takes the readings from.

Mini quote 192 hp for the S but that is continuous. For short periods (under 10 seconds from memory), the turbo is allowed to 'overboost' which may be where your 222 hp came from - you would have to have been over 4700 rpm during that period to get that.

However 192 to 222 is a big jump for overboost - it 'only' increases peak torque from 207 to 221 ft-lb so power would go up by the same percentage. Any chance you were looking at a torque figure, as that seems to match?
