    Mini is in Detroit with an all-new John Cooper Works


    Mini unveiled the newest addition to the company's line up, the Cooper John Cooper Works, ahead of the Detroit Auto Show. Engineers stuffed a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood good for 231 horsepower. Mini says that's the most powerful engine ever put into one of the company's vehicles, and it can be paired with either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. The 0-62 mph sprint falls in 6.1 seconds with the AT and just a smidge slower at 6.3 seconds with the manual.

    There's also a new Brembo brake system to help haul the thing down from speed. Onlookers can spot the JCW thanks to new aero tweaks and unique 17-inch wheels. Designers also opened up the front fascia for additional engine cooling.

    Indoors, the hatch offers up a pair of seriously bolstered sport seats that are unique to the JCW trim, as well as a special steering wheel, shift knob, and gauges. There's also a carbon-fiber key fob and fancy door sill plates. Mini isn't saying how much the new John Cooper Works will be, but don't expect it to be cheap.
