MINI has offered a first look at the range-topping John Cooper Works model in its new Cooper line, revealed here as a thinly-veiled 'concept'.

There is little about this hotted-up hatch that we shouldn't expect to see with the final production model next year - although the brushed-steel look might be left on the shelf by then.

Among the features setting the JCW apart from its regular Cooper and Cooper S siblings is a unique styling kit that adds a little more flair to the perky little Brit.

Up front, there's a new front bumper with extra air intakes flanking the main grille ports, along with a host of red accents and a gloss black grille frame.

Likewise, the rear gets a new bumper with large brake vents in each corner, and a new faux diffuser framing the centre-mounted - and carbon-wrapped - exhaust tips.

Elsewhere, there's new five-spoke retro-styled alloy wheels and the usual assortment of lary body graphics.

MINI is quite on the mechanical details for now (it has to keep something secret for the Detroit unveiling), but we expect a powered-up version of the 2.0 litre turbo that powers the new Cooper S.

In that model, the turbo four produces 141kW/280Nm (up from 135kW/240Nm), delivering a 0-100km/h time of 6.8 seconds.

As for the current and outgoing Cooper JCW, power is rated at 155kW - expect this new model to easily surpass that figure.

Watch for those details to come in Detroit next month.
