Mini has previewed the upcoming John Cooper Works GP once again, with a new set of images of a camouflaged prototype tackling the Nurburgring.
The company says its new performance halo will hit the market in 2020, with production to be limited to 3000 units globally, one thousand more than the two previous iterations.
Mini has confirmed the 2020 John Cooper Works GP will offer more than 220kW when it launches next year, comfortably usurping its pared-back predecessors for punch.
As with the wider Mini range, we know the next GP will draw on a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. At the moment, the most powerful model in the Cooper Hatch line-up – the JCW – makes 170kW, all put to the front wheels.
Mini has confirmed a new stripped out John Cooper Works GP is being developed, ahead of an on-sale date at some point in 2020.
Previewed by the John Cooper Works GP concept revealed in 2017, the car will follow in the footsteps of the 2006 JCW GP and 2012 JCW GP. Both those cars had just two seats, manual transmissions and roll cage, and both were built in very limited numbers.
