MINI Coupe JCW Coupe Accessories update

Thanks for Drill for allowing us usage of his photos. View all images after the break.

During the recent September 15th-25th 64th Annual IIA Motor Show in Frankfurt MINI exhibited some of the upcoming accessories for the R58 Coupe that were previously covered in our story on the upcoming MINI Coupe accessories.

JCW Coupe Spoiler – The spoiler does replace the innovative automatic spoiler that is a first for the BMW/MINI group  We still have not received any information if this accessory spoiler will need the default spoiler either removed or disabled. This gives the Coupe and the eventual Roadster increased down force that will likely be useful in higher speed pursuits such as a track day. The visual language does a good job complementing the rear of the Coupe.

Black trimmed taillights – Likely developed to complement the Black headlight that have recently gone on sale. These should retrofit to R56, R57 LED taillights as well.

Cross spoke R113 Red Stripe Wheels – The R113 in black with the red stripe. This should present a sportier feel to the very popular R113 wheel.

Side Decals – Originally we identified these as being Cooper S side graphics but the image clearly shows a JCW logo incorporated with the stripe. We believe that there might be multiple side strips thus explaining this. Could this mean side strip for Cooper, Cooper S, and JCW? These will fit R56, R57, R58, and R59 cars.

JCW Leather and Alcantara Recaro Sports Seats – These are a new Recaro seat that is a blend between the standard sport seats and the current JCW Recaro seats. There was no information if these seats are replacing the current more aggressive JCW Recaro seats or just a secondary option. There is no information that these would be made available to the US market so until we hear differently we would presume they would not make it to the US market.

    One of the notes I took at Frankfurt was that the side stripes looked good, but the JCW logo seemed like they were an afterthought. I hope MINI offers those stripes with the option of no logo.

      I was just going to say that I love everything about this car except the side stripes. Then after reading your comment, I realized it’s the “after-thought” placement of the JCW logo that makes it less attractive (for me).

      Great pics!!

        Completely agree.

    I agree with you all on the Side Stripes. Hopefully they have alternative stripes that say either MINI, Cooper, Cooper S, maybe just the “S” logo, or plain. I would put those on my R53 in a heartbeat. They’re really great looking. The rest of the accessories are what this coupe needs. It makes it look much more aggressive. I hope MINI is able to also bring those seats to the U.S. I have a good majority of my enthusiast clients asking for something with more support and this is the clear answer for them. It’s a great design!

    Is that a new steering wheel in one of the pics? It looks like it has ridges on the back side

    I think is by far the best looking Coupe I’ve seen. It’s making me take a second look at them for the next MINI purchase.

      Agree. This coupe has “bad-ass” all over it. Good thing there adding some “masculinity” to the brand.

  • Greg

    I can tell you that those seats will be available for all R5x models, only immediately from factory… So they won’t replace the more aggressive JCW seats. It will be like the ‘old’ grey Recaro’s we had on the previous MINI also at the last year of life cycle. The will go in production (Europe) normally from January 2012… (normally november 2011 but it has been retarded…)
