Mini John Cooper Works Concept Coming to Detroit

Hot Hatch

Production version will be rolled out later next year.

Mini has given us a taste of its John Cooper Works concept it intends to showcase at the Detroit Motor Show next month. Having recently unveiled the third-generation Mini, the British carmaker will now roll out the rest of the lineup with a JCW variant to sit at the top of the range by 2014. The BMW-owned automaker has yet to reveal any powerplant details about the concept.

But it’s safe to assume the hot-hatch will have a more potent variant of the 2.0-liter turbo that resides in the new Cooper S. Setting the JCW apart from the stock Mini is a Bright Highways Grey exterior with Mini’s signature red color accents, chunky 18-inch alloys, bespoke styling and aeros including a large rear spoiler, side skirts and bolder front and rear aprons. It also has large air intakes instead of fog lights, LED headlamps, and a sports exhaust with twin chrome tailpipes that Mini promises will deliver “an unmistakable engine soundtrack.”
