MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept unveiled ahead of 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

In the late sixties, Mini was one of the few superstar vehicles in the rally scene for claiming a number of victories at the Monte Carlo Race throughout the years - this was around 50 years ago. And this year, the automaker developed a vehicle to celebrate the Mini's history, which we will see at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. However, Mini has already released photos of it - the MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept.

One of the board members of BMW AMG who is also in charge of MINI, Peter Schwarzenbauer, said that this creation is like driving fun in its purest form. He also said that the Mini John Cooper Works GP Concept is about unrestricted feelings of driving and levels of performance in motorsport.

Like previous Mini GP concepts, the John Cooper Works is quite flashy too - with wings, air intakes and carbon fiber, and an aggressive front clip that come with air intakes and carbon fiber front apron. More carbon fiber details have been used on the side skirts. There are flared arches on both the front and rear wheel openings that seamlessly blend into the huge rear wing and some aggressive add-ons that round off the vehicle's look. As for the paint job, Mini is not known for having bold and bright finishes, but it was finished in just the right combination of red, silver, grey and orange.

2018 MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) Countryman gets official

Each time that Mini launches a new generation of the Countryman crossover, a John Cooper Works performance version is always expected to follow. When Mini unveiled the next-gen 2017 Mini Countryman at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, people were also expected the carmaker to release a JCW variant – especially that the current generation had one.

Now, it is official. Mini will be offering John Cooper Works version of the new-gen Countryman. Bound for launch for the 2018 model year, the new Mini John Cooper Works Countryman takes the Mini Countryman to a whole new level, both in terms of looks and performance. Mini is planning to unveil the new Mini John Cooper Works Countryman to the global public the Shanghai Motor Show in April 2017, with sales in the United States set to commence in the same month.

Even at a glance, the new Mini John Cooper Works Countryman exudes a fusion of athleticism and versatility. It is also laden with a number of features that distinguish it from a typical Countryman. Measuring 169.8 inches in length, 71.7 inches in width and 61.3 inches in height, this performance version of the Mini Countryman has been given a number of model-specific features like the John Cooper Works Aerodynamic Kit. This kit includes the large air intakes in the front apron and a model-specific roof spoiler. The Mini John Cooper Works Countryman is also provided with LED units as headlights.

2018 MINI John Cooper Works (JCW) Countryman rendered

Let’s just admit it – the MINI Countryman John Cooper Works is a crossover that is not just hot-looking but is also an elegant sporty performer. This is why each time that Mini unveils a new Countryman crossover, sporty minded customers are already watching out for the John Cooper Works performance version of this vehicle.

Just recently, Mini unveiled the next generation Mini Countryman – starting 2017 model year -- at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. And since the previous generation had a JCW version for almost every model year, the next-generation Countryman is also heavily expected to have its own variant. Right now, Mini is probably in the final stages of completing the John Cooper Works version of the Countryman. Not a few are expecting that the Countryman that has been tested at the Nurburgring throughout the year is the next JCW version.

However, it remains a mystery how the next Mini Countryman John Cooper Works would look like. At the Nurburgring, the Mini Countryman believed to be the JCW was wrapped in camouflage so the appearance of this performance-oriented version was far from being totally exposed. However, the camouflaged Mini Countryman clearly reveals larger air intakes on the front bumper, new side skirts, a modified rear bumper and newly designed alloy wheels.

It’s expected that when an all-new Mini model is presented, a John Cooper Works (JCW) version will follow. So it comes as no surprise that the Paceman, which made its debut at the Paris Motor Show last September, has been followed in Detroit by a Paceman JCW.

At Mini’s revised stand, there is one parallel to the floor while there’s another one perpendicular to it, linked to an asphalt road that rises up above the Mini stand.

The two are done in chili red and black, chili red roofs and mirror caps which are exclusive to JCW models. A Mini executive said during the press conference for the Paceman JCW that it offers on “the promise of a high-octane race feeling, even on the streets of the urban jungle.” It can deliver 208 hp and could go from zero to 60mph in 6.5 seconds.

Mini’s Countryman John Cooper Works edition costs $35,550. Customers would be paying for its speed-boosting features. The most significant addition to the small crossover is the standard ALL4 all-wheel-drive system. This means that it’s the first JCW model to get the technology. It uses an electromagnetic center differential that evenly distributes power between the front and rear wheels.

However, it could also direct power to where the car could get the highest benefit. What powers the all-wheel-drive setup is a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6-liter four pot engine that produces 208 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The standard equipment includes a six-speed manual gearbox. But what’s offered as an option is a six-speed automatic with Steptronic function and steering wheel shift paddles.

The car can sprint from zero to 60mph in just seven seconds. Mini also claims that the model can return around 31 mpg. To boost the performance, the JCW Countryman features MacPherson struts in the front. Meanwhile, a central-arm rear axle was adapted particularly for the sporty model.

As you may know already, the new MINI John Cooper Works GP will make its world debut this month at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, but in the meantime, the manufacturer released all the details we needed. First of all, the MINI John Cooper Works GP will be built in a limited edition of just 2,000 units, each powered by a modified 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbo engine delivering 160 kW/ 218 hp, a maximum torque of 260 Nm from 1,750 rpm (for short periods peak torque can be increased for short periods to 280 Nm from 2,000 rpm) and capable to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and to a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph).

Moreover, the car features an extra-powerful sports brake system and model-specific alloy wheels wrapped in high performance sports tyres in order to offer superb handling and outstanding driving enjoyment. As we said, the car features a powerful braking system and according to the official press release, it features front discs that are 330 millimetres in diameter and 25 millimetres thick, with 280 x 10 mm discs at the rear.

These are hidden behind the 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 17-inch alloy wheels. On the MINI John Cooper Works GP, the DSC Dynamic Stability Control is not combined with DTC, as would normally be the case, but with a special GP racing mode.

MINI threw out the plan to make a JCW GP Coupe model even before the model arrived or became appreciated by buyers. MINI is apprehensive about the JCW GP two-door model with the belief that it would affect the R56 GP. The Coupe is the new performance flagship for the brand.

It’s expected that a GP model would offer a better performance than the hard-top R56 GP version, which sits as the fastest MINI ever made with an incredible 8:19 Nurburgring lap time. It’s no wonder that MINI is hesitating.

There are questions about the seriousness of the brand to build the Coupe as the automaker’s true halo model. Insiders say that it’s possible MINI didn’t cancel the project entirely but it has put an indefinite hold on plans to hasten the development and introduction o the bar.

MINI revealed today the updated John Cooper Works models featuring a new-generation engine and other powertrain innovations. In the MINI Countryman JCW, the 1.6-liter engine delivers 218 hp and 280 Nm of torque, enough to help the crossover hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.0 seconds – regardless of whether the power flows through the standard six-speed manual gearbox or the optional six-speed automatic.

The top speed is limited to 225 km/h / 140 mph (automatic: 223 km/h / 139 mph), while the fuel consumption is 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres / 38.2 mpg (automatic: 7.9 l/100 km / 35.8 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 172 grams (184 g) per kilometre.

Unfortunately, the other models will have only 211 hp as the official press release says that only the Countryman JCW has 218 hp. So, the 1.6-liter engine will deliver 211 hp and 260 Nm of torque, while the overboost function will allow this figure to be raised to 280 Nm for a short time, on the other models. Thanks to the Minimalism technology, the fuel consumption has also been reduced by up to 0.5 litres per 100 km, depending on the model.
