2020 MINI John Cooper Works GP — Los Angeles
The 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show hosted the world premiere of the high-performance MINI John Cooper Works GP — the fastest MINI ever produced for the street. Making it the fastest is a 2.0-liter MINI TwinPower Turbo engine producing 301 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque — 75 horsepower more than the MINI John Cooper Works. The engine gets paired with an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission with an integrated mechanical differential lock for the front wheels. The John Cooper Works GP will accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds; it has a top track speed of 165 mph.
Finished exclusively in Racing Grey metallic with unique front and rear fascias, the MINI John Cooper Works GP gets a double-wing rear spoiler, while the roof and mirror caps have a contrasting Melting Silver metallic finish. Lightweight 18-inch forged wheels feature GP logo center caps and are fitted with 225/35R18 high-performance tires. Inside the John Cooper Works GP only offers two seats; noise insulation is removed for weight reduction. A limited edition of 3,000 units will be produced.
