Thanks to one of our tipsters we’ve managed to get a hold of the internal planning document for the Canadian market JCW launch later this year. If you live in Canada and are interested in a new factory JCW car, this document is probably what you’ve been waiting for (with the exception of final pricing). Here’s an excerpt:
>MINI Canada is pleased to provide preliminary ordering information for MINI John Cooper Works and MINI John Cooper Works Clubman. The John Cooper Works (JCW) brand represents the performance platform within the MINI group. It combines an iconic brand with a rich racing heritage, performance engineering, and an increased level of driving excitement. The JCW brand is for the driving enthusiast and represents extreme performance and driving fun, with an unconventional attitude. It is based on the combination of the John Cooper story, premium performance, engineering and the essence of MINI.
>With a newly developed turbo charged engine, exclusive 17″ John Cooper Works Cross Spoke Challenge wheel, new sport double exhaust system with 85mm tips, and 4 piston front brake callipers the John Cooper Works models cater to the driving enthusiast.
>For the first time the technically advanced control system, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), has been used on a MINI. DTC allows more slip for greater driving excitement. Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC) is also new on the JCW models. EDLC ensures power gets to the wheel with the most grip. The faster responding and more flexible electronic system utilizes the braking system to maximize traction. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), DTC and EDLC are standard on all John Cooper Works models.
