Europe’s most important motor show will host the world premiere of the MINI Paceman the seventh model in the MINI line up together with a new elite performance model the MINI John Cooper Works GP.

The MINI John Cooper GP is the fastest MINI ever built adding a spectacular new chapter to over 50 years of motor sport tradition. The two-seater represents the most concentrated evidence yet of race-inspired John Cooper Works development expertise in action. The MINI John Cooper Works GP will come onto the market later this year in an exclusive limited-edition run. The fastest MINI ever built is powered by a 160 kW/218 hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine and comes with adjustable coil over suspension, an extremely powerful sports braking system, and bespoke light-alloy wheels and sports tyres. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph).

All the members of MINI’s elite performance family can also be optionally ordered with a six-speed automatic gearbox. Added to which, the new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is the first model in the John Cooper Works line-up to be equipped with the ALL4 all-wheel-drive system as standard. Customers can now choose from a selection of six John Cooper Works models.
