MINI JCW GP Has Some Fun on a Wet Track

The MINI JCW GP was released in 2012 at the Paris Motor Show and everyone loved it from the first moment. It takes you back to MINIs roots, giving you that hardcore feel when you're behind the wheel, as you'll notice in this video made by the guys from MagazineMotorsport.

Weighing only 1,235 kg (2,728 lb) and fitted with a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops 218 HP and 260 Nm (191lb-ft) of torque, the go-kart feeling that the original Classic Mini had is back.

No other MINI is as fun as this one, especially on track and on a wet day. Some drivers even used the GP to race bigger, more powerful cars like the E60 M5 (that has an engine that's 3 times bigger) on heavy traffic roads, as we showed you last week.

There's no doubt in our mind that for $43,667 (€33,833) this is the most fun MINI you can buy and you won't regret your decision for one second.
