The British manufacturer of urban avtomobilchiki positions its new product as the fastest and most powerful of all Mini, which have ever been created. A total of 3,000 units will be produced, and the start of sales is scheduled for 2020.

Having once again proved that even small cars can even be very fast and powerful, the British company Mini released the first advertising images of the new John Cooper Works GP. Daring “baby” should go on sale in 2020. Based on the 2017 concept of the same name – the show was held at the Frankfurt Motor Show (Germany), the “charged” hatchback partially appeared on published photos. It’s hard not to notice the roof spoiler and the “GP” lettering on the sides. In another teaser, a dual exhaust system surrounded by a diffuser, exclusive alloy wheels allows everyone to see what this update is compared to the usual JCW.

Detailed information about the fastest and most powerful road version of the Mini hatchback is currently rather poor, but the British brand claims that the new GP will have more than 300 horsepower.

Under the hood will be a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. It will be interesting to see how much energy the new product will ultimately have, given that the Countryman and Clubman models in the “charged” performance of the JCW are rumored to receive the same 300 horses. Under their hoods will be the engine from the BMW X2 M35i crossover.

The concept introduced earlier widely used lightweight materials to reduce overall weight. You can also expect a modernized suspension and brake system.
