MINI2 has some news on the next generation of the JCW Cooper S that not only matches up with what has been mentioned on MF previously but goes into a bit more detail:

>The engine will weigh in with just over 220 bhp, and in the region 205 lb/ft of torque. The car will feature many unique components, and not just engine components, but trim and bodywork details, including a revised front end to improve cooling and general efficiency. Due to the large number of modifications this car will feature, it is highly unlikely the next generation Works will be available as a dealer conversion, but IF it does become available via the dealer, expect to pay a large mark up compared to the factory Works.

MotoringFile Analysis: Expect the next JCW MINI Cooper S to be more inline with BMW’s holistic philosiphy that they use with the”M” division. That means that upgrades will involve more than just a bump in power but encompass the whole car.
