Another review is in from the recent GP press event. This time from AutoExpress. Here’s an excerpt:

>Developing 215bhp (Ed: yes it’s actually 218bhp) and 245Nm of torque, the GP has only 8bhp more than the Cooper S Works, but the key to its appeal is not raw performance, but pure excitement. With reworked suspension, the way the hatchback turns into bends is simply sensational. So well sorted is the chassis that it can be steered using the throttle almost like a rear-wheel-drive sports car. Lift off the accelerator mid-corner and the nose tucks in tight, while get back on the power and balance is returned, along with a supercharged burst of acceleration.
