Previously seen previewed at the 2013 NAIAS, the MINI John Cooper Works GP once again impressed the crowds at the CIAS media presentation. We were reminded that this fastest MINI ever built churns out 8 min 32 sec lap times on Nurburgring North Loop and 0 – 100 km/hr sprints in only 6.3 seconds.

With only 2000 units being produced and just 50 of those slated for Canada, get to your local MINI dealer soon.

Canadian availability expected in March. Priced at $44 900 CAD.
