The MINI JCW In Detail

F56_JCW_2083

The 2015 MINI JCW is arriving at dealers as we speak and on paper it’s exactly what we at MF have hoped for since the brand’s inception. From the early years as a bolt-on kit to the never fully realized R56 JCW, the brand has had plenty of promise but never quite a cohesive statement (outside of the limited edition GPs). However the F56 JCW marks the brand’s first car that might just fulfill the brand’s promise. The only question left in our mind is if it goes far enough? That’s a question we won’t have an answer to until we get behind the wheel for a full test this summer. In the meantime we urge you to do two things. First keep reading. Second head to your local MINI dealer and test drive one. Third tell us about your experience in the comments. Now, onto why this JCW may just be “it.”

The F56 based MINI JCW is a huge step forward in performance and technology. However that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. And now you have your turn to tell MINI what you like and what you don’t.

We know that MINI reads MotoringFile daily across both sides of the Atlantic. And while they’ve done a bang-up job on paper for the new JCW, that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. And that’s where you, the MINI experts and potential buyers of this new car come in. continued →

Last week MINI finally began the launch process for the 2015 JCW. First up was the European launch where a handful of journalists from the UK and Europe had a chance to drive identically specced automatic JCWs (with those awful and awfully small looking 17″ wheels) around the island of Mallorca and the Circuito RennArena. While our first full drive and review won’t be happening a bit, we wanted to bring you the full collection of photos from the event. They are our best look yet of the new JCW and its gorgeous exclusive green paint. continued →

MINI held its European press launch of the JCW last week in Spain and as customary also dropped a series of videos of the event. While most are of the dry b-roll variety (except the first which is questionably “rocking”) they do give us a great look at the car. continued →

GP 2 Driver Takes F56 JCW for a Spin

11204933_699401970205716_2804089782299323142_nEarlier this month, we had a chance to take the F56 John Cooper Works for a quick spin. Unfortunately, test-driving such a car in Boston traffic at 5pm is not the best setup to get a good feel of the most powerful MINI in the current lineup. However, friend of MotoringFile and GP2 owner, John, took the new John Cooper Works for an extended test-drive. Here are his impressions. continued →
