World’s fastest Mini arrives in the Middle East

United Arab Emirates: Sunday, March 03 - 2013 @ 14:02

Extensively equipped with MINI John Cooper Works motor sport technology, this two-seater MINI boasts outstanding performance to match its sporty looks. Powered by an extensively modified four-cylinder turbo engine capable of developing 218 hp, with adjustable coilover suspension and an extra-powerful sports brake system, this model is set to impress. And to top it all off the MINI John Cooper Works GP is one of the lightest sports cars in its class.

Boasting large front and rear aprons, striking side skirts and a bespoke roof spoiler, which is complemented by a newly developed rear diffuser, this model can only impress.

The ‘GP’ in the model’s title stands for Grand Prix, and with a record-breaking acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, the new MINI John Cooper Works GP certainly lives up to its name. Its responsive power and excellent revving ability with its 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine are reflected by dazzling racetrack performance figures.

The exciting race car feel of the MINI John Cooper Works GP is enhanced by the interior ambience of the model which (partly due to the absence of a rear seats) is focused entirely on the needs of the driver and his passenger, who can savour the performance of the MINI John Cooper Works GP thanks to its Recaro sports seats with GP stitching. Meanwhile, the MINI John Cooper Works thick-rimmed leather steering wheel and the gearshift knob with a chrome ring and red shift diagram help give the driver get connected with the car.

Commenting on the arrival of the MINI John Cooper Works GP, Sarah Klippert, MINI Manager, BMW Group Middle East, said:

“This is the most extreme MINI yet – more focused and aggressive than even the original MINI John Cooper Works GP of 2006. Not only will it offer customers a chance to own the fastest model in the MINI family, but it will also allow them to experience the unadulterated transfer of motor sport expertise into everyday driving excitement.”

A limited number of MINI John Cooper Works GP models are available at Abu Dhabi Motors and AGMC now. The MINI John Cooper Works engine with optional automatic transmission is now available on all MINI models including the MINI Hatch, MINI Cabrio, MINI Clubman, MINI Countryman, MINI Coupé and MINI Roadster.
