MINI revealed the new John Cooper Works Pack, developed especially for the MINI and MINI Convertible, which means that you don’t have to own a Cooper S in order to have the JCW badge on the popular mini car.
As you can see from the photos, the new pack comes with a completely new front bumper, side sills, a new radiator grille as well as a new rear apron, which includes prominent cut-outs at its outer edges.
The design is completed by the 17-inch weight-optimised light-alloy wheels in John Cooper Works Cross Spoke CHALLENGE design.
Furthermore, the John Cooper Works Pack comes with the traction mode DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) added to the standard-fitted stability system DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), as well as EDLC (Electronic Differential Lock Control).
Inside, the car pack adds door entry strips and the John Cooper Works sports leather steering wheel with red contrast stitching. The models fitted with a manual gearbox are kitted out with a John Cooper Works gearshift lever with red shift pattern lettering.
As we said, the new John Cooper Works Pack is available for all engine variants of the MINI and MINI Convertible and according to the manufacturer it can be combined with eight body colours.
The philosophy of MINI’s design is illustrated faithfully in the new concept body. For example, the MINI’s signature sporty and taut surfaces, matching lines, and seamless curves are highlighted with a windscreen that is sloped and raked by an additional 13 degrees from the MINI Convertible. It also comes with a compact passenger compartment -- including two seats to a flat boot lid.
High-polish stainless steel roll-over bars are part of the lengths the styling team went to, creating striking, three-dimensional sculpted bars, padded in front with a wind protection insert mount.
The MINI’s Roadster waist lifts slightly along the body’s length to its end – an elegant silhouette which provides it with a striking appeal with an opened or closed roof. This attractive visual is accentuated more with chrome trim strips wrapping around the windows and roof edges.
A windscreen frame that’s more raked and sharply tapered give this model a distinguished, undeniable sports car look from a head-on view.
The strong over-the-wheel Roadster stand is a true MINI, defining its look. Its brand gets additional emphasis with its distinct features: hexagonal shapes along the radiator grille, black bordering the body’s lower part, many chrome strips, large round headlamps with built-in indicators, vertical rear lights stacked at the rear end’s outer extremes, and the appealing side indicators surrounding the front side panels.
