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.

  7. MANIC R55 says:

    If it was Manic Tuned it would be an animal.

  8. 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

  9. ChaosphereIX says:

    Had an 06 R53 with a bunch of bolt ons…was a complete riot and nothing went wrong. Miss that car.

  10. killuminatl says:

    no thanks on the microtransaction game.

  11. Acureyt says:

    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.

  12. jo23bulls says:

  17. jashy66 says:

    I'm sure people will complain about something but I enjoyed the video he loves the car and cool to see his dads car being cared for

  18. MrKhoshino says:

    "The only other place you can do that is Porsche."
    Or Burger King.

  19. Focus ST 91 says:

    Great car…. for a woman

  20. Did he get a cold air intake? I didn't quite get that.

  21. Video starts at 00:48

  22. jimmynickelz says:

    Haven't heard Neuspeed in a long time

  23. Logsi says:

    That howling sloth moon t-shirt is dope!

  24. adcogran says:

    I use to do business with TC Kline on a daily basis here in Ohio when I worked at a BMW dealership in the parts dept. and they were some great folks that did some awesome work to BMW's and knew this guy's dad and sorry to hear of his passing…..

  25. Justin Boss says:

    He sounds very impressed with his purchase…

  26. 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).

  27. DmcxDmc says:

    Companies gain 40hp plus on just a remap with these… You got done son.

  28. Overpriced POS.There I said what matt really wanted to say at 5:54

  29. CR A says:

    Brings back memories of my 06 JCW!

  30. Jeff K says:

    1st to say 1st

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

  32. 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.

  33. 0:43 if u wanna skip the ad lol

  34. vikings war of clans are u fucking kidding me lmao

  35. Got a seat cupra little bigger than the mini with 240hp. And i can say that its got the same douchebag effect. You just cant help it with these small kart like cars.

  36. towert7 says:

    5:55 that moment when you tell the kid you spent a lot and he went silent to contemplate the meaning of life.

  37. I havent heard people run neuspeed in their cars for years

  38. josh winn says:


  39. Jeff K says:

    These do look fun. Something great about small cars for public roads.

    PS: don't let Matt scare you, hold onto it.
