This is the all-new Mini John Cooper Works GP – the fastest road-legal Mini ever built.
The GT is based on the Mini Cooper John Cooper Works and has a makeover that includes large front and rear bumpers, decals, contrasting door mirrors and air intake inserts, vented sideskirts, a bespoke roof spoiler, special alloy wheels and a rear diffuser.
There are also race-spec brakes and tyres. Inside, the back seats have been removed.
No engine details have been confirmed, but we'd expect the Mini JCW GP's 1.6-litre turbo engine to produce around 230bhp.
The Mini JCW GP goes on sale next year, and will make its public debut at the Mini United festival at Le Castellet in France, this weekend. Prices will be revealed closer to its on-sale date.
Our reviews are based on hard data and thorough testing in the real world.
