2015 MINI John Cooper Works spied for the first time

MINI unveiled the John Cooper Works Concept last month ahead of its public debut at this week’s Detroit Auto Show.

The concept previews a production model that has been caught for the first time winter testing in Northern Scandinavia near the Arctic Circle.

The hot MINI prototype shows new big John Cooper Works brakes at the front and rear, as well as a new aggressive front bumper with bigger air intakes and a new bonnet.

The early stage prototype still has regular Cooper S rear, but a more aggressive rear is sure to follow on the production model, along with a lower suspension, side skirts and new wheels similar to the concept.

Under the bonnet is most likely a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol turbo with around 220bhp.
