We have already seen the Mini JCW GP in the flesh, and now details have leaked revealing that the car will make 218 hp, and achieve a top speed of about 150 mph.
While the 218 hp is only a slight boost over what the standard Mini JCW makes, the real changes comes in the form of suspension setup and aerodynamics. Thanks to these upgrades, the JCW GP goes from 0-62 mph in 6.3 seconds, a whole 0.2 seconds faster than the non-GP version. The add-ons also make the JCW GP 12 seconds faster around the Nürburgring.
For suspension, the JCW GP gets a fully adjustable setup that will allow -1.55 inches of negative camber in the front, and 2.25 inches in the rear, mimicking German sports cars like the Porsche GT3 or M3 GTS. Aerodynamic tweaks include a fully enclosed underside, a new rear diffuser, a larger rear spoiler and some slight front bumper modifications to increase down force and reduce lift. Brakes are upgraded from the previous four-piston setup to a new six-cylinder configuration.
The Mini JCW GP will only have a production run of 2,000 units, making it all the more desirable.
