The new MINI John Cooper Works GP.

A monument with racing genes sets new benchmarks for opening in the
reward tiny automobile segment. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP (combined
fuel consumption: 7.3 l/100 km, total CO2 emissions: 167
g/km) is a fastest indication of a British code that has ever been
authorized for highway use. A 225 kW/306 hp 4-cylinder turbocharged engine
accelerates a two-seater indication – formed on a MINI 3 doorway – from
0 to 100 km/h in usually 5.2 seconds. The new MINI John Cooper Works
GP will be presented to a open for a initial time during a Los
Angeles Auto Show (22 Nov to 1 Dec 2019) and subsequently
constructed in a singular book of 3,000 units during a MINI plant in
Oxford. Delivery to racing enthusiasts around a creation will get
underway in Mar 2020.

An intense, precisionist competition feeling is conveyed by what is by distant the
many absolute engine ever to be used in a tiny automobile of a brand,
cessation record that is fine-tuned formed on John Cooper Works’
endless racing imagination and a physique that is optimised in terms
of lightweight construction, torsional acerbity and aerodynamics. The
new MINI John Cooper Works GP offers peerless sporty aptitude and
strenuous agility. As such, it forms partial of a fascinating
tradition that has been closely related to a name of a legendary
Formula 1 engineer John Cooper ever given a entrance of a classic
Mini 60 years ago. On both highway and racetrack, this mixed has
been a consistent source of sporting highlights: from a initial Mini
Cooper and winning a British Touring Car Championship to a three
altogether victories in a Monte Carlo Rally, a MINI Challenge racing
series, achievements in a Dakar Rally and a latest era of
a John Cooper Works models.

The disdainful impression of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP,
uncompromisingly geared towards impassioned pushing pleasure, is expressed
in both a engine energy and a opening characteristics. More
clearly than ever before, a station is during a really forefront of the
MINI and John Cooper Works indication range. Its additional outlay over and
above that of a MINI John Cooper Works is 55 kW/75 hp. As such, the
superb position of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP is even more
clearly tangible than that of a impassioned athletes of a dual previous
MINI indication generations, any of that was done in a small
array of 2,000 units. The MINI Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP
Kit, launched in 2006 and a MINI John Cooper Works GP of 2013
already reflected scarcely heated racing aptitude with their 160 kW/218
hp turbocharged engines, their specific cessation record and
their disdainful pattern and apparatus features. The new MINI John
Cooper Works GP takes a knowledge of opening in a reward small
automobile to a whole new level. In a march of exam drives as partial of the
array growth process, it finished a path of a Nordschleife at
Nürburgring in reduction than 8 mins – roughly half a notation faster
than a approach predecessor.

Impressive source of power: 4-cylinder engine with MINI
TwinPower Turbo Technology.

A 4-cylinder engine designed for extent opening and formed on
engine racing imagination delivers a energy compulsory for a thrilling
opening characteristics of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP. The
2.0-litre engine facilities a latest era of MINI TwinPower
Turbo record as good as countless precisely mutated sum that
set it detached from a engine of a MINI John Cooper Works.
Model-specific modifications embody a reinforced crankshaft with
lengthened categorical temperament diameter, specific pistons, bushless connecting
rods and a new torsional quivering check with optimised cooling.

In addition, a impassioned opening of a 4-cylinder engine is
achieved by means of a newly grown turbocharger. It is integrated
into a empty plural and propitious with a divert-air valve that
helps optimise a response. The application ratio of a engine in
a MINI John Cooper Works has been reduced from 10.2 to 9.5 in line
with a increasing boost vigour as supposing by a system. The
intake atmosphere channel has also been newly developed. Enlarged estuary and flow
cross-sections and a increasing volume of a sound check ensure
extent dethrottling.

In addition, a latest era of petrol approach injection is
gainful to extemporaneous energy development. Its new multi-hole
injectors, organised mainly between a valves, are means to cope
with an increasing upsurge rate, transporting a fuel into a combustion
chambers during an injection vigour of adult to 350 bar. The fine
atomisation enables accurate metering of a fuel and in serve to
optimised potency also formula in quite purify combustion.
MINI TwinPower Turbo record also includes entirely non-static valve
control formed on VALVETRONIC as law by a BMW Group and variable
camshaft control on a intake and empty sides (double VANOS).

In addition, a new MINI John Cooper Works GP facilities a
model-specific engine oil sump with increasing volume and a distinctive
geometry. This ensures a arguable oil supply during all times, even during
intensely sporty pushing involving high levels of longitudinal and
parallel acceleration.

Spontaneous energy delivery, uncontrollable brazen thrust.

The endless modifications to a simple engine and to a MINI
TwinPower Turbo Technology outcome in a quite spontaneous
response to any transformation of a accelerator pedal as good as
continual growth of energy adult into a high engine speed range.
The 4-cylinder engine develops a extent torque of 450 Nm during a speed
of 1 750 rpm, progressing this torque adult into a 4 500 rpm range. The
extent outlay of 225 kW/306 hp is accessible between 5 000 and 6 250 rpm.

The ensuing pulling energy can be used for unusually spirited
acceleration manoeuvres. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP sprints
from a station start to 100 km/h in usually 5.2 seconds. Thanks to the
high lively of a engine, it is also able of leaving
higher-category sports cars behind on middle sprints. There is
no synthetic extent to a heated brazen bearing of a new MINI
John Cooper Works GP – even during aloft speeds. The tip speed is 265 km/h.

Model-specific empty complement generates an emotionally
absolute sound.

The extemporaneous growth of energy and a uncontrollable revving of the
engine are underscored by a emotionally distinguished sound prolongation of
a empty system, that was grown privately for a model.
The expostulate acoustics authentically demonstrate a superb performance
characteristics of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP. When pushing in
a loose demeanour in a low engine speed operation a automobile produces a
restrained, grave sound. Under full load, energetic power
growth is upheld by a low empty behind vigour and
accompanied by a sound that is desirous by engine racing. This acoustic
accentuation of a car’s intensely sporty impression additionally
contributes to a opening knowledge for motorist and passenger.

The true siren ducting of a empty complement leads into a
quite vast behind silencer with a specific interior design. From
there, dual tailpipes with matt brushed immaculate steel trim and a
hole of 90 millimetres any bend off mainly into a rear
apron. These also yield an authentic visible showcase for a purist
impression of a expostulate technology, that is geared towards maximum
performance. One of a facilities that optimise a empty system’s
glimmer response is a petrol engine particulate filter. Exhaust gas
catharsis in a new MINI John Cooper Works GP complies with the
Euro 6d-TEMP glimmer standard.

Independent cooling judgment grown formed on racing expertise.

The opening characteristics of a engine pave a approach for
superb opening that can be gifted both on a highway and
on a competition track. The heat government mandate this
involves are met by a cooling judgment grown generally for a new
MINI John Cooper Works GP formed on racing expertise. Two external
coolant coolers for a high-temperature circuit, a model-specific
enlargement tank with increasing volume, an privately designed coolant
procedure storage complement and an electric fan with increasing outlay ensure
that a engine maintains a best doing heat during all
times – even underneath high loads and with an intensely sporty pushing style.

The crankcase cooling complement can be temporarily close off by means of
a new split-cooling valve to optimise a engine’s warm-up response.
In addition, a smoothness also has a apart cooling circuit.

New 8-speed Steptronic smoothness with mechanical
differential lock.

The high-performance engine of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP is
positioned transversely during a front according to a hallmark brand
principle. Adapted engine racing record is also used to transfer
a engine’s superb expostulate energy to a front wheels. The new MINI
John Cooper Works GP is propitious as customary with a model-specific
8-speed Steptronic smoothness – finish with integrated
differential close and matched to a engine’s performance
characteristics and high torque. The latest era of the
smoothness facilities increasing inner potency and an extended
spread. The torque converter clutch, that is sealed immediately after
set-off, ensures a approach engine couple and a extemporaneous pushing feel.
A new smoothness control complement enables a quite sporty
changeable strategy. The acoustic comfort is optimised by a newly
grown torsion damper. The 8-speed Steptronic smoothness is
operated around a model-specific electronic rigging selector switch. Manual
involvement in rigging preference is also probable regulating a standard
change paddles on a steering wheel.

The model-specific tuning of a 8-speed Steptronic smoothness is
another member of a altogether package of expostulate and suspension
record that is precisely geared to extent performance, thereby
giving a new MINI John Cooper Works GP a possess singular properties.
This is reflected in change characteristics that are geared towards
intensely sporty pushing – for instance with crook stop downshifts
and approach mixed downshifts during forceful acceleration. What is
more, increasing engine speed level, approach feedback on change commands
and a serve boost in change dynamics are also conspicuous in
involuntary sports mode (DS smoothness mode).

The involuntary differential close integrated in a transmission
ensures that a expostulate torque is distributed between a right and
left front wheels so as to foster traction during particularly
energetic cornering. It is networked with a DSC (Dynamic Stability
Control) complement and acts as a cross close to revoke a speed
disproportion between a front wheels. Under bucket demand, it is possible
to beget a locking outcome of adult to 31 per cent. The involuntary lock
counteracts any detriment of traction, both in a box of differing
attrition coefficients and where there is a disproportion in speed between
a right and left expostulate wheels. For this purpose, it leads a higher
suit of a expostulate torque to a circle with a improved hold or
a circle that is branch some-more slowly, ensuring that any bent to
understeer or oversteer is prevented early on. This creates for
quite flexible steering of a MINI John Cooper Works GP and
enables it to accelerate even some-more boldly out of corners.

Tight engine mounting, physique structure and suspension
tie with a high grade of rigidity.

The model-specific tie of a engine, smoothness and
cessation along with an intensely firm physique structure safeguard highly
a extemporaneous and accurate response to steering manoeuvres and
accelerator pedal movements. The quite superb features
embody an engine mountain specifically grown for a new MINI John
Cooper Works GP. The parsimonious tie of a engine and transmission
to a physique optimises expostulate response.

In a underbody area, a hovel overpass has been transposed by a solid
support for a serve mutated behind spindle member. The generously
dimensioned, rectilinear strut support provides ideal conditions for a
cessation set-up geared towards a really tip levels of lateral
acceleration. At a front end, a cessation tie is optimised
by a strut brace.

Model-specific cessation set-up, DSC with GP mode.

With model-specific kinematics and elastokinematics, a suspension
record of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP opens adult a whole new
dimension of a evil go-kart feeling. In a march of an
complete contrariety module on a Nürburgring Nordschleife and other
competition tracks, it was precisely tuned to a car’s intensely high engine
outlay and a automobile judgment of an well-developed contestant within the
tiny automobile segment. The model-specific versions of a single-joint
open strut for a front wheels and a multilink behind spindle were
also optimised with courtesy to member stiffness. In sequence to
boost agility, a lane widths were increasing and a physique lowered
by 10 millimetres as compared to a MINI John Cooper Works. Specially
tuned cessation springs are usually as most a partial of a model-specific
cessation as a specifically blending auxiliary springs, dampers and
stabilisers. Newly designed pivot orientation capacitate increasing camber
levels on a front wheels. Together with a serve increased
cove levels of a behind wheels, this increases a intensity for
transmitting parallel army during energetic cornering. Stabiliser
orientation on a front and behind axles with quite high preload
optimise hurl support during extemporaneous steering movements.

In serve to a connection, a pattern of a cessation design
also facilities endless measures to boost rigidity. The precise
doing characteristics of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP are
extended by stiffer rubber orientation in a support orientation of the
front and behind axles, for example. The 4 wishbones on a behind axle
are propitious on a outward with clearance-free steel round sleeve joints
instead of rubber mounts, while on a inside there are rarely rigid
rubber mounts. The strut in a engine cell is bolted directly
to a support orientation of a front axle.

The customary functions of a electromechanical energy steering
embody speed-related steering support for extent pointing when
cornering during speed and for gentle manoeuvring during low speeds. As
an choice to a customary setting, a DSC also offers a GP mode
that can be activated by means of a toggle switch. This environment raises
a thresholds for stabilising interventions on a partial of the
braking complement and engine control system. In mixed with the
involuntary differential lock, this provides even some-more heated support
for a flexible doing of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP. In
addition, a toggle switch for determining a pushing stability
complement can also be used to entrance DSC off mode.

Sports stop complement and lightweight fake wheels in exclusive
format.

The sports stop complement in a new MINI John Cooper Works GP ensures
consistently high deceleration opening even when theme to
complete use. It comprises 4-piston fixed-caliper front brakes on the
front wheels and single-piston floating-caliper brakes on a rear
wheels. The sports stop complement is characterised by high fortitude and
a direct, clearly tangible pedal feel. The front calipers are done of
aluminium and total with 360 × 30 mm ventilated discs. They are
finished in Chili Red and bear a John Cooper Works logo.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP is propitious as customary with 18-inch
lightweight fake wheels. The light amalgamate wheels in 8.0 J × 18 format
import reduction than 9 kilograms and are propitious with high-performance
tyres specifically grown for this unusually sporty vehicle. The
heart caps on a disdainful light amalgamate wheels bear a GP logo. The
structure and form of a 225/35 R 18 tyres are designed to ensure
extent steering precision, best smoothness of parallel forces
when cornering in sporty impression and increasing traction during
acceleration and deceleration.

Unmistakable design, optimised aerodynamic properties.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP has model-specific pattern features
that make a station as an well-developed contestant observable right
from a starting line. These also make a poignant grant to
a car’s pushing characteristics – namely fortitude and precise
controllability even in rarely energetic situations. The body, that has
been mutated in detail, essentially optimises a car’s aerodynamic
change and a targeted supply of cooling atmosphere to a expostulate units and
stop system. The vast roof spoiler with double wing contours, the
model-specific pattern of a front apron approximate famous as the
Blackband and a front spoiler mouth of a new MINI John Cooper Works
GP form a precisely concurrent package designed to revoke lift. As a
result, lift values on a front and behind axles are significantly
reduced as compared to a MINI John Cooper Works.

In addition, a front apron has quite vast atmosphere intakes. The
roof spoiler, that extends distant over a side line, has a pivotal role
to play in optimising pushing dynamics. With a topsy-turvy wing
profile, it generates extent downforce with a lowest possible
aerodynamic drag in sequence to press a automobile onto a highway during high speeds.

Wheel arch trim done of CO fibre-reinforced plastic.

The visually observable facilities that are critical in terms of the
car’s aerodynamic properties also embody a vast and strikingly
flared circle arch trims of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP. They
make it probable to mix a use of really vast lane widths and
far-reaching wheels with optimised atmosphere ducting in a side territory of a vehicle.

The circle arch panels are done by means of a special process
and with a element mixed used for a initial time by a BMW
Group consisting of a thermoplastic basis and an outdoor shell
done of CO fibre-reinforced cosmetic (CFRP). Intelligent
lightweight construction goes palm in palm with a tolerable use of
resources. The tender element for a outdoor shells, that are done of a
quite lightweight CFRP fleece, is a polished element that is
recycled from a prolongation of a BMW i3 and a BMW i8. The four
CFRP components compulsory for any particular automobile are produced
regulating a common wet-pressing tool. In this way, a rarely efficient
prolongation routine can be practical that was formerly usually implemented
in high-volume production. In addition, a circle arch covers with
their hexagonally sewn CFRP structure, double matt finish and
uninterrupted numbering give any of a 3,000 vehicles constructed a
singular visible highlight. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP is a BMW
Group’s initial prolongation automobile to underline an unprotected matt CFRP
coating. The particular numbering with a numbers “0001” to “3000” is
practical to a surfaces of a front circle arch panels by means of a
newly grown paint send process.

Model-specific pattern accentuations vigilance precisionist sporty flair.

The precisionist impression of a new MINI John Cooper Works GP, geared
towards extent performance, is serve underscored by precisely
deployed designed accentuations. Only a disdainful finish Racing Grey
lead is accessible for a extraneous paintwork. Meanwhile a roof
and extraneous counterpart caps are finished in a resisting colour of
Melting Silver metallic. Just like a front apron, a behind apron
with integrated behind haze lamps has a particular shaping. A
cross-member on a hexagonal radiator grille, a inserts in the
reduce atmosphere intake and a inside of a roof spoiler are finished in
high-gloss Chili Red. Meanwhile a GP logos on a front and rear,
a outdoor sides of a roof spoiler and a doorway sill finishers, as
good as a foils above a side skirts, are finished with a stylised
“GP” in Rosso Red lead matt.

A distinguished contrariety here is supposing by a black finish of the
headlamp surrounds, a executive radiator grille and behind lights, the
fuel filler strap and a doorway handles, as good as a inlay on the
carp and a MINI trademark during a front and behind of a vehicle. The
black inlays on a headlamps and a maximally darkened Union Jack
behind light units serve emphasize a formidable sporty aptitude of
a new MINI John Cooper Works GP.

Sports automobile cockpit with dual seats and reduced acoustic insulation.

Two seats and reduced acoustic insulation for a purpose of weight
optimisation also give a interior of a new MINI John Cooper Works
GP genuine sports automobile flair. The customary apparatus includes John
Cooper Works sports seats in Dinamica/leather mixed with silver
side edges, red accentuation seams, a GP badge underneath the
integrated headrests and red belt straps. The interior trim on the
newcomer side bears a numbering of a particular vehicle. This is
constructed away for any one of a 3,000 impassioned athletes by
means of 3D printing.

The model-specific John Cooper Works leather steering circle also
acquires a disdainful impression from accentuations constructed regulating the
3D copy process. In serve to red accentuation seams, the
steering circle edge done of soothing nappa leather also facilities a metal
centre imprinting for a 12 o’clock position combined regulating a additive
production process. The change paddles on a steering circle are
serve 3D-printed in metal. In serve to a GP logo, a
evil honeycomb structure can be seen on a paddle surfaces.
Colour accentuations in a differently dim cockpit are supposing by the
red GP logos on a building mats, relating double stripes on a gear
selector and a Chili Red embellished aluminium cross-brace behind the
seats. This serves as a defense to forestall luggage apparatus from slipping
brazen in a eventuality of remarkable braking.

Digital instrument cluster and executive instrument with
model-specific displays.

Optional facilities for a new MINI John Cooper Works GP include
involuntary meridian control, a Connected Navigation Plus package,
that also includes telephony with wireless charging, and an alarm
system. The Connected Media complement comes as standard: it displays
model-specific information on a 6.5-inch shade in a central
instrument panel. The customary trim also includes a digital instrument
cluster on a steering column. The high-resolution 5-inch colour
shade shows a highway speed both numerically and on a scale. The
model-specific arrangement includes proxy feedback and permanent
arrangement after activation of GP mode. A GP trademark is henceforth shown at
a tip of a screen. The striking animation before automobile start
shows a model-specific picture including a GP logo.
