autoblog Reviews The 2012 MINI JCW Coupe

John Neff reviews the 2012 MINI John Cooper Works Coupe for autoblog and concludes that he can't justify buying it:
The 2012 Mini John Cooper Works Coupe simply comes up short on either value when compared to similarly configured front-drivers or performance when compared to similarly priced sports cars.
