Less than 24 hours after the introduction of the JCW Concept, we now have our first glimpse of a JCW test mule. Nothing too surprising here and there isn’t too much to see. This looks like MINI has the JCW Aero Kit front in order to test cooling on the new JCW 2.0L engine. Also seen here are the exact same front brakes that we saw on the new JCW Concept.

The 2015 JCW should debut in about a year — early 2015. Output should be over 220hp and be available with both manual and automatic transmissions. The suspension will be unique to the JCW along with unique brakes and plenty of exterior and interior trim.
