With the New MINI Mk3 apparently making its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September, rumours are rife that MINI are working on a hardcore John Cooper Works GP replacement.

If you've not heard of the GP, it was a more powerful and lightweight two-seater version of the Cooper S with John Cooper Works tuning kit. Produced by Bertone as a swansong to the first-generation MINI range, it was available in limited numbers and sold out very quickly in 2006 to 2000 lucky buyers.
