With the total global production of this highly coveted MINI limited to just 3,000, this John Cooper Works GP is the rarest of all MINI’s and highly coveted. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP is the fastest model of the British brand that has ever been approved for road use with 0 to 60 in just seconds. This intense power comes from the most powerful engine ever to be used in a small car of the brand. The car’s suspension technology is fine-tuned based on John Cooper Works’ comprehensive racing expertise and the body is optimized in terms of lightweight construction, torsional stiffness, and aerodynamics.

The overwhelming agility resulting from the power and performance engineering for both the road and racetrack is designed to give fantastic driving pleasure in all situations. The MINI Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit, launched in 2006, and the MINI John Cooper Works GP of 2013 already reflected unusually intense racing flair with a 218 hp turbocharged engines, their specific suspension technology, and their exclusive design and equipment features. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP takes the experience of performance in a premium small car to a whole new level. In the course of test drives as part of the series development process, it completed a lap of the Nordschleife at Nürburgring in less than eight minutes – almost half a minute faster than its direct predecessor.

As you look at the photos you see that the new MINI John Cooper Works GP has model-specific design features that make it’s standing out as something special. The body, which has been modified in detail, primarily optimizes the car’s aerodynamic balance and the targeted supply of cooling air to the drive units and brake system. The fabulous large roof spoiler with double wing contours, the model-specific design of the front apron surround known as the Blackband and the front spoiler lip of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP form a precisely coordinated package designed to reduce lift. As a result, lift values on the front and rear axles are significantly reduced as compared to the MINI John Cooper Works.

In addition, the front apron has particularly large air intakes. The roof spoiler, which extends far beyond the sideline, has a key role to play in optimizing driving dynamics. With its reversed wing profile, it generates maximum downforce with the lowest possible aerodynamic drag in order to press the vehicle onto the road at high speeds.

 

 
 

 

Impressive source of power

One of the standouts is the wheel arch covers with their hexagonally sewn CFRP structure, double matt finish and consecutive numbering give each of the 3,000 vehicles produced a unique visual highlight, I mean check out #0001 owed by the longtime MINI owner, enthusiast, and YouTube Vlogger Nick Tubbs of Ithaca, N.Y., was the winner of the video submission contest held by MINI USA for all customers with current reservations.
