The 2014 MINI John Cooper Works Concept (pictured) will debut in Detroit next month
The new MINI was revealed just last month, and it sounds the gong for the start of the race to churn out as many variants on the MINI as BMW can manage. And the first of what will be many variants to come of the new MINI is this – the new MINI John Cooper Works Concept – revealed this morning ahead of a debut in a few weeks at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
MINI aren’t letting on what’s under the bonnet of the new MINI JCW, but it seems almost certain it will be a more powerful version of the new 2.0 litre petrol for the Cooper S, which gets 189bhp in the Coopper S but will doubtless get something north of 200bhp in the new JCW.
But the rest of what MINI tell us about the new JCW – even i it’s billed as a concept – will find its way in to a production version of the new MINI JCW some time in 2014.
That means a butch body kit with a more aggressive front bumper with bigger air intakes, bigger sills, a rear diffuser an twin tail pipes for the sports exhaust and a roof spoiler.
The concept JCW gets a Bright Highways Grey paint job with Red Highlights and a set of chunky 18″ alloys.
The new MINI John Cooper Works Concept will debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2014.
