BMW recently released pictures of the Mini John Cooper Works GP Concept. This car will be exhibited at the 2017 IAA cars show in Frankfurt next week, along with an EV concept. We can't wait to get up and close to this one at the event. But for now let's be content by taking a look at the details through this picture gallery. It surely is the modern racing essence of a Mini.

The GP concept's design has been influenced by the carmaker's accomplishments at the Monte Carlo rally around 50 years ago.

The design study also portrays the dynamic flair and ultimate driving fun you get, whenever you are out with this one. Regardless of whether on the road or the race track!

The car sports a ‘black jack’ anthracite exterior paint finish, which shimmers black and grey. The other highlights are in ‘curbside’ matt red metallic.

The front end of the GP concept gets large air intakes and precisely moulded air deflectors to cut a low-to-the-road figure.

Mini’s iconic elliptical headlamps have been retained. However, an air scoop on the bonnet and a hexagonal honeycomb mesh radiator grille sharpen the car's identity.

The vehicle rides low, close to the road and Mini has widened the car's track giving it a large foot print. This has helped in offering top-level handling and cornering at high speeds.

The ‘0059’ number up front refers to the year the classic mini was born: 1959. The red metallic and orange accents on the OVRMs and door handles are neatly done too.

The 19-inch racetrack lightweight wheels also make a statement. Their striking design is highlighted by the multi-spokes with contrasting red and orange metallic paint, along with a GP logo at the centre.

The roof spoiler is the first thing you will notice at the back. It is neatly judged to add personality to the car. It amazing to see how such a huge component falls right in the geometry of things.

The LED tail lamps get the half-union jack on each side. This not only represents the concept car’s British origins, but also provide a sporty touch.

The cabin of the Mini has been stripped off retaining only the bare essentials. Nevertheless, the changes in the interior have been tastefully done.

A roll cage has been added for additional safety. Furthermore, there are deep bucket seats featuring five-point race harness.

To reduce the car's weight, the carmaker has removed the rear bench, headliner and door trims. This underline's the car's focus on performance racing.

There's a cleanly-designed instrument panel and head-up display. The latter makes sure to display relevant information directly in the driver's eye-line.

The driver can shift gears using paddles on the steering wheel. The familiar central touch screen gets the controls for adjusting the car's suspension settings.
