The “British” based automaker Mini has recently released some teaser images of the 2012 Countryman JCW which will be officially presented at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
According to the car manufacturer, the 2012 Mini Countryman JCW shown in the images below is currently being tested in Austria, and knowing how BMW does things, Mini’s mother brand, there’s no doubt that this new model will handle well and be a success, just like all the vehicles made directly or indirectly by the German based carmaker. As you can see from the images below, the 2012 Mini Countryman JCW is coming with an aggressive body kit made out of a front lip spoiler, aerodynamic side skirts and a new rear fascia.
Besides the aggressive body kit, the 2012 Mini Countryman JCW has also been fitted with black body stripes, John Cooper Works badging and a dual exhaust system. As we said above, the Countryman JCW will definitely handle well because its manufacturer has fitted it with a sport tuned suspension with larger anti-roll bars and a 10 mm reduced ride height. The new model made by Mini will be powered by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbo charged engine which will be developing a total output of 207 horsepower and have a peak torque of 280 Nm (207 lb-ft), which should be enough to enable the crossover to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 7.6 seconds.
