MINI thrills. turbocharged.
Pushing boundaries is in our nature. After all, our rich racing heritage stretches back over six decades. But with the MINI John Cooper Works GP, we’ve pushed things even further. We’ve embraced the raw power of a 2.0 litre, 306 HP 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with an outstanding 450 Nm torque.
Add in an 8-speed automatic transmission with limited slip differential for maximum acceleration, grip and agility. Sporty, 3D-printed metal shift paddles for effortless control. A performance-engineered air intake system that lets the engine breathe easier. And a second external cooler that optimises engine cooling and power output. Plus, we’ve modified the acoustic insulation material to make this MINI lighter, punchier and more exhilarating.

You can’t have speed without a spoiler. Standing out in Racing Grey and Chili Red, this is more than just a pretty adornment. It gives you that extra aerodynamic edge, reduces drag and exerts downward pressure that keeps your MINI John Cooper Works GP firmly grounded on the road.

The weight-optimised, forged rims are manufactured using the latest strengthening technology, and boast a striking four spoke design and GP centre cap. The Hankook sports tyres keep you in complete control. And the 4-piston, red fixed-calliper brakes provide you with all the stopping power you need for tight turns and fast changes of pace.
Low, wide and ferociously poised, the distinctive front bumper is defined by the growling black grille mesh and menacing bonnet scoop. The headlights encased in black housing magnify its assertiveness. And the large air intakes in the front bumper cool the powerful engine and the brakes to ensure peak performance. We’ve furnished these with Chili Red highlights, of course.
A specially tailored diffuser on the rear bumper enhances downward force and increases grip on the road. The result? A high-performance MINI that cuts through the air as clean as a whistle. Plus, we’ve ditched the rear wiper to save weight and reduce drag.
