The New MINI JCW Has A Magic Button

autoevolution looks at the new MINI John Cooper Works hatchback video review below from TheFastLaneCar.com and found:
The guys from The Fast Lane Car are amongst the lucky, first ones to take this new beauty out for a spin and they found something nobody said a word about up until now. The press release left it all out and not one official spoke about it.

We’re talking about a remote control, a magic button if you will. What it does is add character to the car by opening up a flap in the exhaust. Now, this kind of technology is not new, not by a long shot.

As a matter of fact, we’ve seen it on various custom, aftermarket exhaust for some time now, but it is a rare sight to have it installed as stock by a manufacturer. I guess that if we had to have a trendsetter in this regard, it’s only befitting that it’s MINI.
