MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept
Considerably wider than a standard MINI, the GP Concept features large front and rear aprons, side skirts and a prominent roof spoiler, making it clear that this little car would be very much at home on the track. As if it didn’t already turn heads, this racing MINI is painted in Black Jack Anthracite with Curbside Red metallic accents throughout. Use of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber help increase performance, while the 50/50 weight distribution adds to the driving fun. Don’t look for the JCW GP concept to go into production as-is; however, there have been special GP versions of the MINI in the past, so some elements may make it to the street.
