MINI John Cooper Works Concept Defines Pint-Sized Performance

An all-new MINI is ready to be released but if sporty dynamics and a scrappy demeanor isn't enough for you a high-performance John Cooper Works version of the car is under development. Not surprisingly the company revealed just such a design study on day one of the Detroit Auto Show.

The MINI JCW looks suitably aggressive for a pint-sized performance machine. It rides on newly designed 18-inch wheels. It's also dressed up in special side skirts, a rear apron as well as a diffuser element. Stiffer springs and high-performance brakes amp up the fun factor and should result in a"thrillingly sporty driving experience," MINI's words, not mine.

As you can see, this car's paint is pretty unique. The color is called "Bright Highways Grey," the final layer of which is actually hand polished.

The JCW's aggressive exterior styling hints at strong performance but the company hasn't said anything about what's going under the car's hood. Rumors strongly suggest a turbocharged four-banger with around 210 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque. A sports exhaust lets it bark like a bulldog.

Rounding things out this car ought to be able to scamper from a standstill to 60 miles an hour in less than six seconds but if you're a true MINI fan it'll probably weasel its way into your heart in half that time.
