John Cooper Works Edition of the upcoming 2012 Mini Coupe has an unfortunate accident during testing on the Nürburgring.

Here are the latest spy shots of the upcoming 2012 Mini Coupe John Cooper Works Edition, spied just this morning on the Nürburgring where this prototype was doing some testing.

Unfortunately, the car managed to hit a small bird which got stuck on the grill of the car - poor thing.

The camo here is still trying to hide the roof and rear end of the MINI Coupe JCW, including that rear spoiler.

The MINI Coupe will share much of its DNA with its Roadster sibling, both of which will likely debut alongside each other at the Frankfurt motor show in September. The JCW Edition is expected to come later.
