For several years MINI has been working on how to properly position the JCW sub-brand now that they have full access to BMW technology. The first glimpse into these efforts will be the internet debut of the 2015 MINI F56 JCW in December followed by the public debut in Detroit this January. The first JCW of MINI’s new era will pack the B48B20O0 2.0L four cylinder that will have an output of around 230 hp and torque over 255 ft lbs.
