Update: Thanks to an intrepid reader we’ve now learned that JCW isn’t aware of this product being sold as an accessory despite it being shown in the JCW tent along with other JCW parts. While we’ve had this product confirmed by someone at MINI, there still seems to be a real question as to whether this will actually make it to the public.

Yes, that was full carbon fiber bonnet/hood seen recently at the Let’s MINI event in Germany. Despite assumptions, we’ve recently received word that this is not something specifically for a potential special edition MCS Lightweight (which is reportedly still up in the air) but as an option that may simply be a dealer accessory.
