Mini hasn’t released much information on what goes under the bonnet of the new John Cooper Works models but we know that the hot hatch will arrive with petrol and electric powertrains. Speculations suggest that the electric JCW will pack up to 250 bhp, while the petrol JCW will offer about 201 bhp on tap. The latter is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder engine.

Mini has previewed the John Cooper Works model in camouflage in the latest images. The camouflage is created by the Mini Design Team and pays homage to the iconic red and white colours used for classic Minis in motorsports in the 1960s. The “37” logo commemorates the history win of the Mini Cooper S at the 1964 Rallye Monte Carlo 60 years ago.
