MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept
Although most current owners probably don’t know it, MINI has a rich racing heritage. To pay homage to its racing past, MINI designers created the John Cooper Works GP Concept. There have been limited edition GP MINIs in the past — this concept picks up where those left off. “If you know about MINI, you’ll be aware of the brand’s long and successful history in motor sport,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president of BMW Group Design. “The MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept brings together the full suite of defining MINI design features and showcases them at their sportiest and most exciting. What we’re looking at here is maximum performance, maximum MINI,” van Hooydonk noted.
