The British based automaker MINI has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the John Cooper Works GP, which should be “the fastest MINI ever”.
According to the car manufacturer, the MINI John Cooper Works GP is debuting this weekend at the 2012 MINI United Festival in France, Le Castellet, and production of the model will be limited to just 2,000 units. MINI says that the John Cooper Works GP managed to do a lap on the famous German track, the Nurburgring, in just 8:23, which is the fastest lap ever for a MINI, managing to beat the time set by the MINI Cooper S with the John Cooper Works GP kit by almost 19 seconds.
MINI says that the John Cooper Works GP is coming with a new aerodynamic body kit, which is made out of large front and rear aprons, a bespoke spoiler and a rear diffuser. The rear seats of the model have been removed so the vehicle can actually be called a “racer”. Even if the MINI John Cooper Works GP has been officially revealed, the car company didn’t say anything about its performance of turbocharged engine. Production of the MINI John Cooper Works GP will start later this year and only 2,000 units will be made.
