Fastest Mini ever built set for Paris debut
A LIMITED-EDITION road car with race track-developed technology, the Mini John Cooper Works GP is the sportiest and fastest production model ever built under the nameplate of this British premium brand.
It will make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show this month, and production of a limited edition of just 2000 units will start later this year.
This two-seater (pictured here) boasts impressive performance to match its distinctive looks.
An extensively modified four-cylinder turbo engine capable of developing 160kW, adjustable coil over suspension, an extra-powerful sports brake system and model-specific alloy wheels with sports tyres ensure superb handling and outstanding driving enjoyment.
The balance between the engine, the suspension and the aerodynamics was fine-tuned during intensive testing on the Nürburgring North Loop, where the car clocked a best lap time of 8:23 minutes.
With its 0-100km/h sprint time of 6.3 seconds, and top speed of 242km/h, the GP brings an authentic race car feel to everyday driving.
