Mini Coupe will soon be available in a GP special edition of the John Cooper Works setup. At least this seems to emerge from the spy shots snapped in Germany, where the British sports car, lightly disguised, has been recognised from some features already seen on the John Cooper Works GP hatchback prototype. We refer in particular to the flashy four-spoke alloy wheels and the streamlined setup, which includes a new front bumper and a more aggressive rear diffuser with twin exhaust pipes.
The GP kit presents a racing setup with no back seats, rigid chassis and larger braking system. Under the hood is fitted an advanced version of the famous 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbo engine, whose power should increase to 220hp. The final model will be presented by the end of 2012.
