As part of their new program, Up Close and Personal, Car and Driver filmed a spot of the limited-edition MINI John Cooper Works GP after delighting us with one about the E92 M3 Lime Rock Park Edition.
The JCW GP MINI is the fastest model you can get in the British company's line-up. It's pushed forward by the same turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that develops 218 HP and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque but it became the fastest MINI around due to its 1,235kg (2,722 lbs) weight.

With these specs, the JCW GP MINI goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph), whilst the fuel consumption is rated at 7.1 l/100km (33 mpg) on a combined cycle.

Unfortunately, MINI decided to limit the production to just 2000 units so you'd better hurry up if you still want to buy one.
