As is the way with these things, nothing can be kept a secret. As we all know, Minis are always offered with an Aero Kit and thisCountryman is no different. The kit will help the Mini look more aggressive and it might even provide better aerodynamics, but that is debatable.
Since the Countryman is different than anything else in the Mini lineup, it was hard to imagine what an Aero Kit would look like. We didn’t have to wonder long.
Thanks to our good friends over at MotoringFile, the Aero Kit for the new Mini has been leaked. The large front fascia sees little chance and there is a larger air dam and new side mirrors and rear apron. In fact, the side mirrors look like something off of the John Cooper Works edition and in fact, they are. We believe that they will have some JCW markings on them when we see it in the flesh.
There are also big black fender flares that look pretty awful to be honest. They seem a bit too big for the wheels. Yet, these wheel arches may come in handy to the people that want to take this thing in the dirt.
Stay tuned for more information.
