MINI Hardcore: MINI John Cooper Works GP

We have been contemplating for a few days already whether or not we show you this MINI JCW GP, because once again it is not confirmed for the Canadian market.

The Chassis? Yes it has been lightened the brakes are race spec and the wheels are 4 spoke light weight alloys, there are many light weight race specific parts on the MINI JCW GP. Expected official unveiling around early 2013. UPDATED: Price range will be around the range of $45,000 - $48,000 CAD and at this time will be slated for November 2012 Production for a January 2013 Delivery. (Click read more for full gallery)
