Mini JCW GP - Blasts Round the Ring

Since the Mini Cooper S JCW, in its standard form wasn’t faster than the Renault Clio RS, Mini are bringing out a limited edition car, called the GP, of which, only 2,000 will be made. It reportedly went around the 'Ring in 8:23, which is a whopping 19 seconds better than the old GP.
Well, now it is faster than the Clio, and considerably so, getting 5 extra horsepower over the standard GP, while losing its back seat for weight reduction. Factor in the nearly-race-spec suspension, brakes and aerodynamic upgrades and the new GP looks like a very serious front-wheel drive machine.

If you are one of the lucky 2,000 able to afford this exclusive Mini, you will also enjoy its excellent exhaust note, as it seems to sound even better than the regular car, as demonstrated by this video uploaded by Youtube user fastsportscardriver.
