Look out, world: there’s a MINI John Cooper Works GP coming.
If you’re a MINI fan, you’ll be forgiven for drooling a little bit. We are all excited to see the MINI Cooper JCW GP – and have been since the GP Concept was presented at the IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt. The concept was inspired by the brand’s racing heritage, particularly its wins in the Monte Carlo Rally a half century ago.
In Munich, Germany, the MINI GP Concept earned rave reviews, and generated intense anticipation, with its dynamic design, performance, and agility. Peter Schwarzenbauer, member of the Board of Management for BMW AG, says, “The MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept is all about the unfettered feeling of driving and levels of performance found in motor sport competition. This is driving fun in its purest form.”
We cannot wait.
Expect the full fledged, road ready MINI Cooper JCW GP to be just as engaging and thrilling. Will the 2020 model feature an integrated roll cage? Roof scoop? Dramatically flared fenders? A dynamic rear wing? Details are still few and far between, but that can’t stop the speculating! Based on the 2006 MINI Cooper S Works GP and 2012 MINI John Cooper Works GP, we’d expect a bit more power and even more firm handling to start.
Until the iconic brand reveals more, we’ll just have to dream! And check out other great MINIs for lease or sale.
