The fastest MINI yet, the John Cooper Works GP will also make its world premiere at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The limited edition JCW GP is an exclusive hot hatch that has been honed at the Nurburgring. It is limited to just 2000 examples. The 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine churns out 221PS of power and 260Nm of torque, enough to allow the JCW GP to go from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 242km/h. The hot hatch also gets adjustable coil over suspension and more powerful brakes to rein in all the power. 

 

In addition to the world premiere of both cars MINI will also put on display the entire range of John Cooper Works cars (six in total) at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
