MINI John Cooper Works Facelift Gets New Equipment, Same Power
The MINI Hatch and Convertible models got a second facelift earlier this year, meant to keep them relevant until a completely new generation is launched. Those with a keen eye for detail might’ve noticed though that the original unveiling of the two excluded the John Cooper Works version. Well, today we’re taking a look at the top-spec model in all its glory, unveiled with a fresh face but not so fresh specs.
At the front of the vehicle, the round LED headlights and the hexagonal radiator grille, which features a red crossbar now extends far downwards. Enlarged air cooling openings ensure optimum temperature control of the drive and brake systems in extremely sporty driving situations. The model-specific side scuttles on the front side panels and the rear apron, which now features a distinctive diffuser to optimize airflow in the rear area of the underbody, have also been redesigned.
