This bit of news comes from the Car Connection.com:
“…Redesigned front seats will provide more lateral support, while the recline-and-fold mechanism will be easier to use. The dials on the dash are set to make way for chronometer type gauges, similar to those in the Lexus IS 300.
Company insiders have also hintÃ‚Âed that a mighty 300-hp edition could be in the pipeline, as well as a supercar baiting flagship prepared by the officially enÃ‚Âdorsed tuning firm, John Cooper Works in West Sussex. Details of changes to trim levels and prices remain a secret, but the retro style cabin is expected to feature a number of revisions.”
Most of the news in the article pretty old and some of it may even be incorrect (hence I didn't include it here) but there are some interesting bits of info. First off the front seat redesign is something I've only heard vague references to. Also the mention of the often rumored 300hp JCW special edition yet another seeming confirmation that something is actually in the works so to speak.
