The MINI John Cooper Works GP gets a new suspension that features an individually adjustable coilover suspension, which allows ride height to be lowered by up to 20 millimeters, which means the suspension set-up can be fine-tuned to different circuit conditions whenever the MINI goes out onto the track.

The balance between the engine, the suspension and the aerodynamics was fine-tuned during intensive testing on the Nürburgring North Loop (the old grand prix circuit), where the MINI John Cooper Works GP promptly clocked up a best lap time of 8:23 minutes.

If you want one you better act fast! MINI is only going to produce 2,000 units.
