The 2020 Mini John Cooper Works GP has been revealed in prototype form at the Nurburgring.
Mini says its new flagship performance model will be available globally to fans next year, with production capped at 3000 units.
Power will come from a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that will produce “more than” 220kW. It’s likely to be the 225kW/450Nm turbo unit from the BMW X2 M35i, Mini has already deployed this engine in the updated John Cooper Works versions of the Clubman and Countryman.
Additionally, the Mini GP will feature model-specific suspension, weight-optimised construction and precisely defined aerodynamic properties. The brand claims the GP will set a new benchmark in the small car segment.
The exterior gets wide air intakes, large light alloy wheels, unique front and rear aprons and a roof spoiler.
The new Mini John Cooper Works GP is expected to be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
