Mini Cooper JCW Convertible going to Geneva show

Mini’s going to be busy over the next few months, with new product debuts already scheduled for Geneva (the Mini One Clubman) and Frankfurt (Mini Crossover). If the rumors prove correct, one more new Mini is to revealed – the John Cooper Works edition of the new convertible looks to join its hardtop brother at the Geneva Motor Show in March. As in the JCW hardtop, the convertible version will be blessed with a more powerful variant of the Cooper S model’s turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, which can send its 211 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. Like the hard-top, an overboost function allows for a torque peak of 207 lb-ft for a short period of time of quick bursts of acceleration.

Chassis improvements include new 17-inch alloys (with optional 18-inchers), an upgraded brake package and standard sport suspension. Of course, no upgrade package would be complete without a few visual modifications, and the JCW delivers with a revised frontal appearence, aero kit and plenty of badging inside and out.
