MINI JCW GP Official Specs



Quote:
Despite the information leaking early, as it so often does, the MINI JCW GP was just officially released, confirming the specifications that leaked yesterday.

With more horsepower, an overboost function that takes torque to the next level and loads of performance parts, the hottest MINI to date is a track-ready road car. At 218 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque at 1,750 rpm, the little car proved to be a real rocket while running around the Nurburgring, setting a 8:23 lap time on the North Loop.

Further emphasizing the carís track ready handling, MINI increased camber on both the front and rear tires in an effort to improve grip and steering during high-speed driving. Sitting inside those tires, larger six-piston brake calipers squeeze the vented front disc brakes to offer better stopping power than lesser models.

Drag is also reduced thanks to a fully-enclosed underside, rear diffuser, new rear spoiler and front bumper modifications. An individually adjustable coilover suspension will also allow for the car to be lowered as much as 20 millimeters (.79 inches).

The car will be produced in a limited run of only 2,000 units. Pricing has only been announced for the U.K. so far at £28,790 which converts to about $45,850, though that isnít an accurate reflection of what to expect. Expect the car to make an appearance later this month during the Paris Motor Show.

With only 500 units available for the US and approx. $45K I wonder what its availability would be.

Might be better to take the $10K and beef up a S model, due to only 500 units available in the US.

Comments?

Cheers!

You could everything to an S model to make a like a GP but it wouldnt be one, people will buy it just so they can say theyve got a real one.
