Let's take a look at the numbers, shall we?
301 horsepower. 331 lb-ft of torque. 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds. A top speed of 165mph.
All that, in your new 2021 MINI John Cooper Works GP. MINI really stepped up their game for this edition of their cream-of-the-crop little hatch.
This is a track-focused version of the MINI Hardtop, and boy is it ever track-focused. So much so that it lapped the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife in under eight minutes! Now a decade ago, the list of cars seen on that list would begin with Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc. This is a MINI Cooper, folks. Astonishing.
Not only is it actually quick, but look at the thing. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic fender flares, larger intake scoops, larger rear spoiler, and a redesigned front bumper with a front spoiler all make this little hot hatch go like a bat out of hell.
