WHY THE NEW MINI JCW GP COULD BE THE BEST HOT-HATCHBACK

Premium British car brand, MINI has been testing the new John Cooper Works (JCW) GP on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife as part of its development process.

Due to launch in 2020, MINI’s new pocket rocket has achieved lap times that are almost half a minute below the record set by the previous model.

Limited to just 3,000 units, the GP has been designed to offer a powerful and raw driving experience. Not only does it look extreme, its styling is fit for purpose thanks to MINI’s boffins creating proper aerodynamic properties throughout the bodywork. In short, this car has been designed to tackle the racetrack with ease.

The new car is up on power. Under the bonnet is a 300 horsepower, four-cylinder Twin-Power engine, making it MINI’s fastest and most powerful production model to date. Couple engine with a set of dual sports exhausts and you’re guaranteed plenty of pops, bangs and engine growls.

A massive roof spoiler, large wheels and chunky open air intakes at the front and sides of the car not only help to keep the brakes and engine cool, but they help add to the GP’s ultra-aggressive styling which differentiates it from the standard Cooper S and JCW hatchbacks.

The BMW-owned group promises to take its legendary ‘MINI driving fun’ to a whole new level with the John Cooper Works GP. The previous model achieved a lap on the ‘Ring’ in a respectable 8:23 minutes, with the new model promising a lap time of under eight minutes – not bad for a front wheel drive hatchback. Further testing still on-going, so this time could potentially shrink.

The MINI JCW GP in to launch in 2020, but don’t expect to see many on the roads as only 3,000 will be made.
