Race-inspired Mini JCW GP Concept unveiled

Mini has revealed the John Cooper Works (JCW) GP concept ahead of its unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The car will debut along with the EV concept at the event.

The carmaker has incorporated many racing design elements from their experience in motorsport. They describe the concept as 'driving fun in its purest form'. The car sports a wider body and track, while incorporating carbon fibre components to reduce weight. There is a carbon fibre front splitter, side skirts and a rear spoiler. The car rides on 19-inch alloy wheels with red and orange accents. The 0059 stickers are to remind you of the year the original Mini was born - 1959.

Inside the cabin, Mini has equipped the hatchback with deep bucket seats featuring five-point race harness. Additionally, there's a roll cage for added safety. The headliner, rear seats and door trims have been removed to reduce weight overall. There's a head-up display too for putting up important information. Suspension settings can be altered through the touch screen system.

Mini has not given any confirmation about a production model. However, we can expect a limited-run GP series based on this JCW concept. It might not be as manic as this one, but it should borrow traits from the version to still have a glamorous styling. More on this next week from the motor show.
