Mini Cooper S Convertible John Cooper Works to debut in Genevaby Andrew Ganz
This one might take the cake for longest new car name in recent memory: The 2010 Mini Cooper S Convertible John Cooper Works is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. Anticipated to mirror the Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works in terms of mechanical specifications, the speedy convertible will get a 211-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder and a host of other upgrades.
The Mini JCW will also likely get the Brembo brakes, 17-inch wheels with performance tires, tightened suspension and reduced back-pressure exhaust system that its Cooper S and Clubman S siblings receive. A unique bodykit - $1,250 on the hardtops - will also probably be on the options list.
The second-generation BMW-engineered Mini Convertible recently made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Leftlane recently had the opportunity to sample the Clubman S JCW and we'll soon be publishing a review of the standard Cooper S JCW - so check back here if you're a Mini enthusiast.
