September 18, 2012 11:01 am

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.

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.
