Out of the total of 2000 MINI John Cooper Works GPs to be built, only 30 will be coming to Australia as the fastest MINIs ever built. The reason for this is most likely that as an import, it’s quite expensive, and at AUD56,900 a piece, they are very much so.
According to, most of them have already been spoken for by customers who know they will become collector’s items in the future.

“Designed and built with performance and race track suitability in mind, this limited edition Mini JCW GP has been reworked from the ground up with years of racing heritage know-how from the John Cooper Works engineers,” said Mini Australia general manager Kai Bruesewitz.

Powering the new limited edition model is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 218 PS (160 kW) and 280 Nm of peak torque. The car will do zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and has lapped the Nurburgring in 8 minutes 23 seconds.
