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.
The facelifted Mini Clubman 'LCI' has been spied this week during development testing, giving us an early glimpse as to what to expect from the refreshed wagon range.
Spotted in hi-po John Cooper Works (JCW) guise, this prototype is wearing eye-catching yellow wrap on the front and rear, suggesting the majority of cosmetic updates will be centred around these areas.

Rauno Aaltonen and Henry Liddon won the gruelling event in a Mini Cooper S, the last of three wins for the tiny rocket at Monte Carlo.
