It’s official, MINI will make a JCW Countryman. The image above shows a prototype undergoing winter testing in Austria.
The word is the JCW Countryman will offer a more tailored suspension tune, including a 10mm drop in ride height and an increase in power beyond the usual 210hp (155kW) we’ve come to expect from the JCW 1.6 litre turbo.
Sadly, it appears that Prodrive will have nowt to do with the development of this car. So, we can only hang in hope that a road going Countryman WRC is a possibility.
