Mini announces hardcore John Cooper Works GP Concept

Staff writer

British brand Mini has already announced an electric hatchback to go on display at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, but its latest announcement is somewhat more exciting. It's the most extreme Mini we've seen yet, and is called the John Cooper Works GP Concept.

Mini says the car embodies driving fun 'on both the race track and the road', suggesting it's set to be somewhat of a road-going race car - like the current MINI John Cooper Works Challenge. However, as the brand has not yet released any technical details, it would appear to be a styling exercise more than a serious model proposal.
