To debut at Detroit Auto Show
Dec 18, 2013


Just two months after Mini revealed its all-new, third-generation model, the British-by-way-of-Germany carmaker will soon show off its John Cooper Works Concept at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Based on the all-new Mini (of course), the John Cooper Works Concept has a longer wheelbase and wider track compared to its predecessor yet retains the go-kart-like feeling the brand is known for.

Distinguishing the Mini John Cooper Works Concept from the standard model are the large air intakes--occupied by the fog lights in the production model--and the air-channeling elements along with the LED headlights and the black surround for the front grille. The John Cooper Works aerodynamic kit also features specially contoured side skirts, a rear apron with flaps, a rear diffuser, a roof spoiler \"and additional body components designed to channel air efficiently around the C-pillars for optimized aerodynamic balance at high speeds.\"

As a further nod to the concept\'s sporting focus, a sports exhaust system with a John Cooper Works silencer system and twin tailpipes with chrome finish can be found in the center of the rear apron.
