The little Mini that has been around in the states for a while is a cool car, but none of its variations have ever been real speed demons. The hottest of the series is the John Cooper Works version, and the 2020 GP iteration is being shown off in LA. The car has interesting style that some will love, and others will hate.
It has plenty of GP logos around the exterior, including big ones on the ends of the wing mounted atop the hatch. The oddest bit is the plastic extensions over the fenders int eh front and rear that we assume are meant to perform some aero function and cover wider tires.
Mini says the car can run the Nurburgring in under 8-minutes. It’s only offered in automatic form. Autoblog reports the JCW GP will ring in at $45,750 when it hits showrooms next year, and only 3,000 units will be made. That’s a lot of cash at nearly $10,000 more than the Civic Type R.
