MINI’s John Cooper Works GP hot hatch will be priced at $39,950 (which includes delivery charges of $700). Set to go on sale this fall, the car has raced at Nurburgring has an output of 218 hp and up to 207 lb-ft of torque. The car doesn’t offer more power than the typical John Cooper Works car. However, it’s faster. Its Nurburging lap record is faster than the BMW 335i Coupe and Lotus Exige S. It is a real track-ready vehicle due to a series of performance upgrades. Among its parts are a fully-adjustable coilover suspension, a special aero kit and a curb weight of 2,558-lb, which is 121 lbs lower than the John Cooper Works-equipped Cooper S. This will be MINI’s most expensive car when it starts selling. The second-most expensive car would be priced lower by $5,150.
