John Cooper Works Mini to Come in Automatic

Fans of the Mini's Steptronic-enabled six-speed autobox (maybe we'll call them "devotees") will be able to have their chosen Mini tweaked out with the John Cooper Works package. BMW announced it plans to offer the factory tuning package — which adds 33hp over the Mini Cooper S (203bhp) — on Minis fitted with the optional six-speed automatic. As Pistonheads reports, a new sound package will also be available, giving the Mini a more powerful-sounding exhaust tone. It's not called Buzz-Be-Gone, but maybe it should be.
