This is the Fastest Mini EVER
The 2013 John Cooper Works GP is the successor to MINI’s 2006 John Cooper Works GP. MINI has the goal to outperform the 2006 John Cooper Works GP in every way possible. The 2006 John Cooper Works GP had a limited number of models made, and the 2013 Cooper GT will keep that trend going and be a special model with 2,000 units produced.
So what makes this particular upgrade so special? Where the original John Cooper Works GP was a body kit added to a standard MINI Cooper S, this is a complete change in every aspect from design to engine power. The 2013 John Cooper Works GP is as close as a MINI Cooper is going to get to being a fully fledged racing car. It includes a racing standard suspension, brakes, racing tires, a multitude of aerodynamic design adjustments. They even left out rear seats to keep the car light making it focused purely on the driving experience.
All of these upgrades lead to better performance over the older model. Acceleration speed will be up over the old 0-60 mph of 6.2 seconds. The horsepower will also be be getting an upgrade from the 2006 Cooper Works GP’s original 214. The new GP even beats the 2006 model on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, besting the old John Cooper Works GP by 19 seconds for a time of 8 minutes and 23 seconds.
Overall the new John Cooper Works GP is a perfect fit for any sports car enthusiast who wants a high performance vehicle and is a fan of the MINI Cooper. It’s powerful, unique, and certainly makes a statement in terms of design. No doubt this will be a historical piece added to the legacy of the MINI Cooper.
