From the front we can see the JCW will exhibit a low front chin spoiler giving it an aggressive face and helping air flow past the car in high-speed circumstances. This front spoiler then blends in the suit a revised side-skirt bodykit and enhanced rear bumper. The rear end looks fairly aggressive with the JCW kit, a lot more than the standard Roadster version.
JCW doesn't just fit fancy bodykits though. The Roadster JCW is expected to be powered by the 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine seen in other JCW MINIs. This absolute cracker of a engine produces 155kW of power and 280Nm of torque. In the normal Cooper JCW, the engine is able to propel the car from 0-100km/h in a very decent 6.6 seconds. The Roadster is likely to offer very similar acceleration.
Other enhancements on the new model will include bigger wheels and brakes, sportier suspension and a cool pop-up rear spoiler, to set it apart from the rest of the MINI range.
The MINI Roadster JCW is expected to go on sale sometime in 2012.
