The JCW Clubman is coming. But not today. And not even this year. However what will be available from launch is the JCW exterior package which will include the JCW aerokit and 19″ JCW wheels. Today we get our first preview of that via MINI.de’s terrible online configurator.
The JCW exterior package will consist of aero kit, 18″ JCW wheels (with 19s optional), JCW spoiler, white turn signals and performance control. The JCW Interior package will also be available at launch with Sport seats, JCW stainless steel pedals, JCW sills, JCW shift knob and the always appreciated anthracite headliner.
What about the full JCW? We broke the news that MINI was developing an all wheel drive JCW Clubman (and Countryman) with upwards of 300 hp almost a year ago. The plan is to use a high output (figures are obviously very tentative at this point) for these cars as size and weight will increase over their predecessors. Nevertheless the power to weight ratio could be the best of any MINI to date. Coupled with the traction of all wheel drive these larger JCW models could be the fastest MINIs to date.
In the meantime we’ll have this JCW exterior and interior package to tide us over. Look for the final Clubman JCW to look much like what you see above but with larger air-intakes in place of front foglights.
