Mini John Cooper Works Concept Details:

  • JCW model set to debut at the 2014 NAIAS in Detroit, MI
  • Features exclusive paint in Bright Highways Grey and sport stripes
  • 18” alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, and JCW aero kit
  • Longer wheelbase and wider tracks

Last month Mini revealed features and specs for its all-new 2014 Hardtop, which is longer and wider than its predecessor. Now the automaker is moving on to its next contender for pole position – the John Cooper Works (JCW) model, set to debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI.

The concept features all of the sporty styling cues you’d expect from a JCW model including exclusive body paintwork in Bright Highways Grey, sport stripes in red and white, bespoke aerodynamic features and 18” light-alloy wheels.

To decrease wind resistance and improve downforce, the concept features a roof spoiler, a JCW aerodynamic kit comprised of specially contoured side skirts and a rear apron with flaps and a diffuser element.

Additionally, the JCW model features a longer wheelbase and wider track over the outgoing model, which Mini says has a direct effect on the car’s driving characteristics. Lastly, it also uses a sports exhaust system including JCW silencer system, and twin tailpipes with chrome finish that carry the JCW logo.

Powertrain options have not been revealed, however, last year’s 2013 Mini John Cooper Works GP set the fastest lap ever achieved by a Mini on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit. It’s safe to say that the new JCW concept has large shoes to fill.
