The appearance package offers standard JCW buyers a taste of the limited-production GP edition.

Mini unveiled its bonkers John Cooper Works GP last year at the 2019 LA Auto Show. With 302 horsepower (255 kilowatts) and a snazzy body kit that includes a gigantic roof spoiler, it’s arguably the most visually shocking Mini of them all. It’s definitely the fastest, with a 0-60 time of around 5 seconds dead. The Mini featured here, however, is not the JCW GP. Rather, it’s the JCW GP Pack, which in this case means an appearance package available on the standard JCW.

No, you won’t get the boy-racer bodywork from the GP, but the package does give you the GP’s Racing Grey metallic exterior with contrasting Melting Silver on the roof, mirror caps, and spoiler. Black trim for the hood scoop, door handles, and fuel door further accentuates the finish. 18-inch wheels get GP center camps; the car gains additional black trim on other exterior components like the grille and headlight surrounds, and there's GP branding on the entry strips.

Inside, the GP Pack adds sport seats in Leather Dinamica finish, a bespoke steering wheel with red contrast stitching, and more GP identifiers for the seats and floormats. If you opt for the automatic gearbox, paddle shifters on the wheel say GP as well.

As for the rest of the car, it’s still standard-issue JCW. That means the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine generates 228 hp (170 kW), which goes to the front wheels through a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. Compared to the standard Cooper, the JCW also gets bigger brakes and retuned suspension to be more lively on the road or the track. It’s certainly not as hardcore as the GP, but with a 0-60 time of around 6 seconds flat, it’s no slouch model by any means.

Munich. The MINI John Cooper Works (combined fuel consumption: 7.1 – 6.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 162 – 157 g/km) is the apogee of extreme driving fun in the premium segment for small cars. Its inspiringly sporty characteristics are surpassed only by a rare gem: the new MINI John Cooper Works GP (combined fuel consumption: 7.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 167 g/km). The full potential of its engine and drivetrain engineering unfolds above all on the race track. The fascinating character of the model manufactured in a small series of just 3 000 units can now be transferred to everyday life on the road in the MINI John Cooper Works. From July 2020, the John Cooper Works GP Pack is being supplied factory fitted for this car. The pack with exclusive design and equipment attributes will bring authentic race-track flair to the road.

The John Cooper Works GP Pack offers some ideal options for especially intensive expression of motor-sport passion. The entire pack content is perfectly harmonised with the design and character of the MINI John Cooper Works. The content was developed on the basis of expert know-how gathered in the white heat of the race track, which has assisted all the models of the John Cooper Works brand to achieve inspiring performance, and is derived directly from the development process for the new MINI John Cooper Works GP. This content enables the MINI John Cooper Works to hone its sporting profile in a particularly authentic approach.

Racing Grey metallic for the body and the contrast colour Melting Silver metallic for the roof, John Cooper Works rear spoiler and mirror caps, have been reserved exclusively for the coachwork livery of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP so far. Together with the black engine bonnet scoop, black door handles and black fuel lid they now highlight the intimate relationship between the two extreme athletes. The 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels in the design John Cooper Works Cup Spoke are emblazoned with the “GP” badge on the centre caps. The Piano Black headlight surrounds and the blackened inner parts for the headlights and rear lights, the black MINI logo on the bonnet and tailgate, as well as the entry strips, which also bear the “GP” logo, additionally highlight the impressive appearance of the vehicles fitted with the new John Cooper Works GP Pack.

Notwithstanding the exceptionally marked inspiration derived from motor sport, the MINI John Cooper Works is a winner with unrestricted everyday roadable capability. The inimitable race feeling can be experienced in the car interior on four seats, while the MINI John Cooper Works GP has been designed as a two-seater to consistently epitomise elite sporting performance. The new John Cooper Works GP Pack includes John Cooper Works sports seats in a Leather Dinamica finish with the “GP” badge. The logo is also featured in the floor mats for the driver and front passenger, and both front and rear mats are finished in red stitching. The John Cooper Works leather steering wheel, which is also part of the new GP Pack, has been designed in a unique concept. The steering wheel is covered in Walknappa Leather, features red stitching and 3D printed metal centre marking for the 12 o’clock position. Associated with the optional 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, the metal shift paddles on the steering wheel with the “GP” logo are also produced in a 3D printing process.

The MINI Original range of accessories includes a large choice of appealing products for additionally creating an individual identity that is tailored precisely to the motor-sport flair of the John Cooper Works GP Pack. The dynamic charisma of the MINI John Cooper Works can be further enhanced by a bonnet scoop, side scuttles and a tailgate handle in stitched carbon, alongside the black waistline finisher. An even more intense sports-car ambience in the interior is enhanced by a number of features including the John Cooper Works shift knob and the John Cooper Works hand-brake grip in carbon fibre with Alcantara gaiter.
