In the final test phase, the Mini JCW GP crossed the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in less than eight minutes.
The British automotive company under the wing of BMW did not announce the exact time for which the pre-production version of the most powerful Mini so far has passed the legendary German hitchhiking, but said the new JCW GP “closed the circle in less than eight minutes, which is significantly less time than what the preeminent predecessor did in 2013 (8:23).
The new Mini John Cooper Works GP drove under camouflage foil, and it is already known that there will be a two-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine developing 300 horsepower with a maximum torque of 450 Nm. There will also be an eight-speed automatic transmission.
It is planned to start production and sales next year, and it is likely to produce 3,000 copies.
