MINI John Cooper Works GP

John Cooper Works GP fastest MINI ever built

The ultra high-performance John Cooper Works GP MINI production has been announced.

MINI has just announced details of the John Cooper Works GP which will be the fastest production MINI ever to be built. The JCW GP will begin production and arrive in showrooms later this year with a limited run of 2,000 units worldwide. This the second MINI John Cooper Works GP that the company has offered, but this all-new version is much faster than the previous model.

This MINI lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife a full 19 seconds faster for a brand-best time of eight minutes and 23 seconds. The new JCW GP will deliver extreme performance and the lap time at the Nurburgring was faster than a BMW 335i Coupe (8:26) and very close to the performance of the BMW E36 M3 (8:22) which shows just how exceptional the new MINI JCW GP is.

MINI hasn't released many details yet and we don’t know exactly how much horsepower the newest MINI John Cooper Works GP will have, but we do know that it will have considerably more than the 214 horsepower that the previous model had for it to be able to produce such impressive results. The twin-scroll turbocharged engine will produce plenty of torque and will be high-revving.
