Mini’s recently revealed John Cooper Works GP has been described as the fastest production Mini has ever built. At the official launch, Mini announced that the new sports coupe lapped the Nurburgring in 8 min. 23 seconds and today, they have unveiled the video of their speedy lap. This lap time puts the 2013 Cooper JCW GP at about 19 seconds faster than the 2007 JCW GP.

The new GP version is distinguished by large front and rear aprons, striking side skirts, a bespoke roof spoiler, and a newly developed rear diffuser. On the interior, the rear seats were removed in order to add more of a racing appearance. Other adjustments include an adjustable suspension developed specifically for the car, racing brakes, chassis improvements, and special paint and graphics.

There will only be 2,000 units of the Mini Cooper JCW GP produced, so if you want to buy one, you better hurry up.

I was shocked by the performance of this Mini. I didn’t expect that Nurburgring will lose to this Mini

Mini should seriously rethink about their styling. Maybe this will sell better if it has a more stylish appearance.

It’s good that it recorded a time of 8:23. Should it due to the enhancement on its exterior features?
