Modified 2013 John Cooper Works Mini GP – One Take

This is a clean example of the second-generation “R56” MINI Cooper S “JCW GP.” The John Cooper Works GP is a special edition of MINI’s fastest three-door, with extra power, stiffer suspension, rear-seat delete, unique wheels and aero, and exclusively a manual transmission. For a fan of the marque, this is the ultimate MINI, though in my review of the stock car, I remarked it had “The performance of the Fiesta ST for the price of a BMW 335i.”

This example has been modified with a host of bolt-on engine modifications, full suspension upgrade with TC Kline coilovers and associated parts, TC Kline wheels, and upgraded brake lines, pads, and fluids. The aftermarket is limited for MINI’s in general, and the JCW Most of all, so to see a modified GP is very rare.

    These things look like a riot, makes me want to drive a small car again. As much fun as my 6MT 5 series is, there's nothing like chucking a small hot hatch around some corners

    You are going to ruin that plastic on that huge gauge. Trust me I ruined mine doing that. The mark it leaves will not come off.

    Poor kid, they saw him coming a mile away. A fool and his money soon go seperate ways… a truer song has never been sung.But, don't worry kid, you'll grow up and learn from your mistakes (maybe).

    Love the cars, but it'll still fall apart before 80,000 miles.

  33. Post By Patrick Tomlinson

    Sorry Matt, but where have you gotten the info that the MINI aftermarket is small? It is huge! Also to remark that the car has ST performance for 335i money is missing the point in how special this little car is. Maybe over saturation to bloated high HP cars has jaded your view.
