What’s So Special About the 2020 MINI JCW GP?

While details are carefully guarded about the MINI Cooper JCW 2020, we do know without a doubt that this will be an unforgettable car. And in a lineup as impressive as MINI’s, that’s saying something. MINI USA product head, Ishaan Khatri, says to expect “some big surprises.” We cannot wait.


The 2020 MINI JCW GP will feature the beloved two seat layout; they will add a functional cross brace in the rear compartment to increase structural rigidity. Racing, anyone? We love that MINI stays true to its roots as a champion! We also expect to see an enhanced digital cluster and special exterior colors and trims.


What about power? The 2020 is likely to offer around 280 hp and 300 ft lbs of torque with an automatic transmission. Will they offer a manual too? Khatri plays it coy, so we’ll have to wait and see. But with the high (for MINI) horsepower and the reduction in weight, we do think this will be the fastest MINI yet.


Another insight from Khatri indicates that the GP3 will be extremely limited in production. The previous GP line produced only 1,000. We expect that this will be bumped up to 3,000 – worldwide. In the United States, we may only get a few hundred. If the MINI Cooper JCW 2020 is on your wish list, visit Braman MINI to learn more.

The new MINI JCW GP will likely roll out in late spring of 2020. In the meantime, consider another MINI Cooper or JCW to tide you over. A great lease can help you drive away in an iconic vehicle as we await 2020!
