MINI JCW GP Video from Paris




Quote:
As a part of the ever evolving language of the Internet, if you’re writing in all caps, you’re screaming. That’s what MINI appears to be doing with its new JCW GP model; and rightly so.

Unveiled today at the Paris Motor Show it’s the fastest MINI ever, horsepower is rated at 211, while a host of other performance goodies make for an 8 minute 23 second lap time at the famed Nurburgring

Full power from the turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine comes on at 6000 rpm, while torque of 207 lb-ft is available from just 1750 rpm. Paired with a six-speed manual transmission, the JCW GP can hit 62 mph in 6.2 seconds.

Special 17-inch wheels come coated in 215/40ZR17 high-performance tires while increased front toe-in and rear camber have been dialed-in for added cornering stability. In addition, a fully adjustable coilover suspension can lower the GP’s suspension by as much as 20mm (almost one inch), while large 13-inch bakes up front and 11-inch rotors in the rear help slow the fastest MINI ever.

Looking the part, the GP gets new front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a large roof spoiler, all of which work together with an underbody tray to reduce lift on the rear axle by 90 percent.

The highest-performance MINI ever, only 2,000 will see production.
