MINIUSA has announced pricing on the 300 HP 2020 JCW GP and it’s aggressive. For $44,900 you get a level of performance never seen in the brand’s history. Given the performance and capability improvements over the previous $39,950 GP, the increase seems more than justified on paper. We’ll have much more in the days ahead. Is the price justified? Would you pay $45 K for the new GP?

MINI USA is pleased to announce the U.S. market pricing of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP – the third generation of MINI’s exclusive high-performance model.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP features a powerful four-cylinder turbocharged engine, unique, custom-tuned chassis technology, and an aerodynamically optimized exterior appearance. Backed by the racing know-how of John Cooper Works, MINI’s exclusive, extreme sports car increases the bar for performance in the small car segment.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP will make its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in California, open to the public from November 22 to December 1, 2019.

Global production will be exclusively limited to only 3,000 units, produced at MINI’s factory located in Oxford, England.
