327 kms from new
The 2013 John Cooper Works GP, described by the company as the fastest Mini ever built.
On the exterior the new model will be distinguished by large front and rear aprons, striking side skirts, a bespoke roof spoiler and newly developed rear diffuser. This impressive package continues on the interior where the car has the rear seats removed in order to get a more racing appearance
The 2013 GP has a wholly redesigned suspension, with coil-overs offering a 0.8-inch range of adjustment. Compared to the JCW, the GP has been lowered by 0.8 inch in the front and 0.6 inch at the rear. Spring rates have increased by 50 percent with anti-roll bar diameters remaining the same. The front brake hardware includes larger, 13-inch vented front discs and six-piston fixed calipers—non-GP JCWs have four-piston pinchers—while the stock caliper hardware and 11-inch platters carry over out back. A rear wing, diffuser, and underbody panels reportedly reduce lift at the rear axle by 90 percent at speeds above 62 mph. Perhaps most important, GP models get 7.5- by 17-inch aluminum wheels wrapped with aggressive 215/40 Kumho Ecsta V700 tires. With two degrees of negative camber—four times more than the JCW—and reduced toe-in, the GP is set up to make good use of its rubber.
This late limited edition Mini Cooper GP model shows a mere 327 kilometres from new, and is finished in black with a matching black leather interior. Your opportunity to purchase essentially a brand new Mini Cooper Works GP!
