Report: Mini to reveal 230hp John Cooper Works production model at Detroit

AutoWeek reports that Mini will be revealing the production version of the latest Cooper-based John Cooper Works model at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in January.

As expected, the JCW Minis will be based off of their lesser counter parts, following previous generation models such as the first-generation R50 Mini Cooper, which had 200hp from its Cooper S-based 1.6L supercharged four. The second generation JCW E56 model had 208hp in its reserves and now, the new figure is said to hover around 230hp–a very significant bump overall.

For the first time as well, the JCW Minis will be offered in both three- and five-door body styles sporting a modified version of the Cooper S’s latest 2.0L turbo four. It will be the most powerful Mini to date with around 285 lb-ft of torque as well, all sending power to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic or manual.
