Mini John Cooper Works GP Unveiled
The fastest Mini ever has been unveiled, and it will be known as the Mini John Cooper Works GP - a special-edition Mini, which is expected to go on sale later this year with a limited production run of just 2,000 units. Even though the vehicle has been unveiled, Mini has not confirmed anything regarding its powertrain. But, according to the reports from reliable sources, the fastest Mini will be powered by a 1.6-liter twin-scroll turbocharged engine that has been upgraded to generate up to 230-hp. The automaker itself revealed that the John Cooper Works GP lapped the Nurburgring-Nordschleife in 8 minutes and 23 seconds that is pretty quick.
“Underpinning the performance characteristics of the MINI John Cooper Works GP is exclusive powertrain, chassis and aerodynamics technology inspired directly by motor sport,” Mini said in a statement.
“Its twin-scroll turbo engine generates outstanding torque, displays remarkable elasticity and demonstrates a healthy appetite for revs. Specially developed, adjustable race suspension channels this superlative output into spectacular yet precisely controllable handling,” Mini added.
