    Mini Cooper S JC Works GP

    The exclusive Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit will serve as a real treat for the particularly sports-minded Mini fan. The special edition featuring a boost in power output to around 218 bhp and a noticeable reduction in weight will be produced as a limited edition of 2,000 units. Its performance will clearly surpass that of the most powerful ex-works Mini to date, the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works Kit.

    The Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit was first presented to the public during Mini United, the official Mini annual meeting and international seasonal finale of all Mini club sport series being held in Misano/Italy from 28th to 30th October. The Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit is expected to be available in Europe from July 2006, the price tag in Germany being around 30,000 Euros. Information regarding US-specific model details will be released at a later date.

    Racing Technology Made for the Road

    While developing the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit, engineers focused predominantly on even greater agility and high driving stability. Modifications to the intercooler as well as engine tuning measures have boosted power output of the free-revving 1.6-litre supercharged power unit to around 218 bhp.

    In order that such power and the high maximum torque of 180 foot-pounds are transferred securely to the road, this limited special edition features a limited slip differential as standard. Dynamic Stability Control DSC is available as an option. High-performance brakes by John Cooper Works featuring red-lacquered brake calipers on the front wheels ensure optimum stopping power. Additional standard equipment by John Cooper Works includes a sports suspension and an awesome sound generated by the specially constructed Tuning Kit. An additional new highlight are the weight-reduced 18-inch alloy wheels specially designed for the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit.

    In order to reduce weight even further, engineers made extensive modifications to the technology and bodywork of this special edition. The standard longitudinal control arms on the rear axle now come in an aluminum version. Due to bodywork modifications and the omission of parts of the damping material, the air conditioning unit (optionally available at no extra charge) and the rear seats, weight has been additionally reduced by around 88 pounds. This value substantially enhances motoring performance and cornering ability, transferring the Mini Challenge racing feeling to the tarmac.

    Revised Aerodynamics and Exclusive Body Colors

    The Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit features a thoroughly revised aerodynamics package. Front and rear aprons, the now wing-shaped rear spoiler, the even further lowered side sills and the underbody panelling have all been redesigned. This has resulted in a distinctly reduced drag coefficient and enhanced downforce on the front and rear axles.

    The Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit is immediately recognizable by its exclusive grey-blue metallic body color combined with a roof painted in Pure Silver. The air scoops on the bonnet and in the front apron also come in Pure Silver. Likewise, the exterior mirrors feature a contrasting color - fiery Chilli Red.

    Purist Interior Design

    In keeping with true racing car tradition, the interior of the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit was intentionally designed to keep a low profile. Nonetheless, standard equipment still includes Recaro sports seats, Radio Boost with CD and a multifunction sports steering wheel.
