Mini John Cooper Works Concept at the NAIAS

Germans from Mini have decided to offer us the possibility to take a quick look at their latest achievement, the John Cooper Works concept which will be revealed for the first time for the public at the 2014 North American International Auto Show that will take place in Detroit next year. The new model features elements like exclusive body paintwork in Bright Highways Grey, familiar MINI red color accents, bespoke aerodynamic features and to transfer the output to the road, 18-inch John Cooper Works light-alloy wheels that come with a new design.

nder the hood it hides a very powerful high-performance power train and chassis technology that has aerodynamically optimized exterior elements that make it agile and easy to handle. The specialists have tried different ways to save weight and to improve aerodynamics and this is why the concept version of the Mini John Cooper Works received such a positive influence from them. Actually, the specialists have received large air intakes, LED headlights and also a black surround for the front grille. The aerodynamic kit contains side skirts and also a rear apron with flaps and a diffuser to improve air efficiency around the C-Pillars for optimized aerodynamic balance at high speeds.

Designers have also offered Sport Stripes, in Chili Red for the bonnet and boot lid and in white for the roof. There is also a red accent line that lends particular emphasis to the logo of the John Cooper Works found on the radiator grille. Engineers have fitted a sports exhaust system that includes twin tailpipes and JCW silence system. Thanks to these elements, we can admit the fact that the engineers did not stop only at the visual part to make us understand the fact that this is a sports car, but went the extra mile and proved this by adding all the rest of the elements mentioned above.
