The upcoming MINI JCW Roadster was seen testing at Nurburgring and is virtually ready to hit the market sometime in early 2012. It will be powered by the same engine as its JCW Coupe sibling.
The upcoming MINI JCW Roadster was just spotted testing at the famous Nurburgring. This latest MINI will feature an aggressive kit that includes a low chin spoiler, ventilated hood, center-mounted dual exhaust system, and larger brakes and wheels to give the car a more aggressive appearance. Specifically, the kit helps to enable air to flow past the MINI JCW Roadster in high-speed conditions.
And like the JCW Coupe, the new roadster will also feature the signature 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission that produces an output of 207hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. The new MINI Roadster will be able to accelerate from 0-62 mph in a respectable time of about 6.6 seconds. The MINI JCW Roadster is virtually ready to hit the market and is expected to go on sale sometime in early 2012. Photos courtesy of CarAdvice
