UPDATE: Apparently these shots are of an accessorized version of the Clubman, and not official pics of the full-bore JCW variant. Thanks to

With the first few details about MINI's Stage II JCW Cooper S emerging, it was simply a matter of time before we saw a similar package for the brand new Clubman S. As we speculated, the John Cooper Works edition Clubman is somewhat similar to the MINI Challenge safety Clubman that we featured last month. The revised front bumper isn't quite as radical as its track-bound compatriot, but the JCW Clubman makes up for it with a unique stripe design, new exhaust tips, red brake calipers peering behind 18-inch wheels, plus carbon fiber side mirrors and (non-functioning) hood scoop.

Naturally, power output will be bumped up -- somewhere in the realm of 200 HP -- while torque will likely increase to around 200 lb.-ft. Beyond that, expect to see some carbon fiber trim on the inside and an F1-style shift light on the instrument cluster. All standard practice for the JCW crew.

      FYI - that's not a JCW Clubman. That's a press photo of the few JCW accessories that MINI currently has available to Clubman owners.

      The rest of the information above (and at Autoweek.nl) is completely false.

      The mini is cool, I get it. But the clubman just looks like BMW trying to use the Mini exactly as it is, to appeal to other markets. I would think they would use their vast knowledge and resources to do more for a new model then simply stretch it. It looks like a chop job, that's sad.
