Power is expected to come from a Cooper S-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine which according to BMW sources will deliver around 230 bhp (172 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm). In the Cooper S, the motor is rated at 189 bhp (141 kW) and 206 lb-ft (221 lb-ft with overboost). Power in the MINI JCW will be channeled to the wheels through a six-speed manual transmission or an updated six-speed automatic gearbox.
According to a recent report, the 2015 MINI JCW will be unveiled in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and will probably be exhibited alongside the five-door hatchback John Cooper Works model.
