Those madcap mavens of miniature minutiae at Mini released an illustration of what the world premier of the next John Cooper Works model may look like when the cape is pulled back in Detroit.

The John Cooper Works Concept is based on the latest-generation MINI.

Large air intakes, replacing the space used for fogs in production cars, and formed air-channeling elements mark out the front apron of the MINI John Cooper Works Concept, which also features LED headlights and a black surround for the front grille.

An aerodynamic kit comprises specially contoured side skirts and a rear apron with flaps and a diffuser element. A roof spoiler and additional body components designed to channel air efficiently around the C-pillars for optimized aerodynamic balance at high speeds.

Color-wise the JCW will boast its contrasting red for the roof, roof spoiler and exterior mirror caps.  Additional red accents are on the rim wells, the calipers of the sports brakes, the side indicator surrounds and the contour lines of the front and rear apron. A red accent line also lends emphasis to the logo on the radiator grille.

The JCW Concept is fitted with a sports exhaust system including a silencer system, twin tailpipes with a chrome finish that carry the logo.
