This can be seen now in a car’s design: a precisionist nonetheless highly
romantic extraneous and interior visualize a GP genes some-more radically
than ever before. The MINI John Cooper Works GP follows on from the
serve limited-edition John Cooper Works GP tiny array of 2013 and 2006.
The extraneous – emotionally designed top-level performance.
The prosaic front territory with a far-reaching track, vast front apron, flared
circle arches and a back wing manifest even from a front instantly
conveys formidable energetic performance. Classic MINI icons such as
a elliptical headlights and a hexagonal radiator grille safeguard a
definite clarity of temperament and high approval value. At a same
time, evil John Cooper Works elements such as a hood scoop
in a carp and a hexagonal honeycomb grille with GP trademark in the
radiator grille underscore a sporty notice of a front.
The side viewpoint of a MINI John Cooper Works GP reveals a sportiest
MINI conformation to date. The interplay between a squeezing window
area and a rising shoulder line traces a crowd figure during a side
that gives a clarity of acceleration even when a automobile is
stationary. Below this, saturated surfaces form a comprehensive vehicle
corpus. The vast front apron and vast roof spoiler give a side
viewpoint limit sporty aptitude as good as ensuring aerodynamic optimum
performance. The extraneous paint finish Racing Grey lead alternates
between light grey and blue-violet, formulating a comprehensive clarity of
depth, while a roof and counterpart caps are finished in Melting Silver.
All standard chrome elements during a front, side and back such as MINI
logos, doorway handles, fuel filler cap, side skip and headlight
surrounds are finished in high-gloss black in this small-scale series.
Racing feeling with distinguished colour accentuations and carbon
Deliberate MINImalism in terms of form and colour focuses on
technology, serve emphasised by phony accentuations in high-gloss
Chili Red and matt Rosso metallic. The use of lightweight materials
such as CO twine optimises a power-to-weight ratio, while the
rarely optimised spindle bucket placement promises a hallmark MINI
go-kart feeling. The comprehensive prominence in a side viewpoint are the
trustworthy circle arch covers – supposed spats – that are done of
CO fibre. Elaborately hand-crafted recycled CO fleece from the
Landshut plant is used here. For a initial time, a CO fibre
fabric is directly manifest and showcased by means of black hexagon
stitching. Meanwhile a numbering in a front squabble shows the
small-series prolongation number. The 18” lightweight fake wheels in
bi-colour pattern appreciate a distinguished four-spoke thesis of a MINI
John Cooper Works GP in rope style. It is a lightest 18” forged
circle ever to underline in a MINI, creation a poignant contribution
to weight reduction.
The back territory echoes a particular front and side design. The
fluent roof spoiler is not usually a matter in sporty styling: its
figure also ensures best downforce and fits in ideally with the
geometry. The same goes for a atmosphere diffusers and atmosphere ducting surfaces
in a apron. Prominently placed during a centre of a reduce back area,
a classical double tailpipe embodies a John Cooper Works DNA. The
splendid immaculate steel double tailpipes are made with the
largest probable hole and expel strenuously and puristically
from a diffuser.
The interior – pristine racing style.
The interior of a MINI John Cooper Works GP combines precisionist sporty
aptitude with comprehensive colour accentuations. The dim colour and material
judgment creates a reduced, sporty simple mood, with high-quality,
deliberately phony sum during comparison points. In a motorist area,
a new free-standing digital instrument cluster on a steering
mainstay puts a applicable information in a driver’s margin of vision
as compulsory by a conditions during hand.
3D copy in detail.
The latest prolongation techniques such as 3D copy turn off the
special interior experience. A distinguished prominence from a driver’s
viewpoint are a aluminium change paddles on a sports steering
circle – made regulating 3D printing. They relate a hexagonal theme
from a extraneous in a form of rope breakthroughs. The shift
paddles are a distinguished component in a interior of a MINI John
Cooper Works GP in terms of both coming and new softened haptics
and are featured in this form for a initial time in a MINI. Another
new component is a 3D-printed steering circle grip and a individual
musical trim frame in a newcomer area. Each musical trim
frame is singular and bears a vehicle’s limited-edition production
number. Their GP-specific hexagonal structure echoes a surface
structure of a change paddles. In this way, MINI demonstrates a whole
new dimension of how 3D copy can be integrated in a serial
prolongation process. The use of addition processes such as 3D printing
not usually raises customisation to a new level, it also enables entirely
new forms of pattern character that were not formerly probable using
Minimalistic back area.
The MINI John Cooper Works GP does not have a back seat, as was the
box in a prototype models, with welfare instead being given to
achieving a lowest probable altogether weight. The transparent and tidy
surfaces of a back cell also simulate a rebate to the
essentials. The vast “GP” lettering in a back row is achieved by
a use of opposite grains and gives a interior a striking, novel
accentuation. Behind a front seats, a red cross-brace generates a
