MINI John Cooper Works GP Memasuki Pasaran Kereta Terpakai

Dengan hanya 10 unit yang tersedia dijual semasa pelancaran, berikut adalah GP mini ke-11 dan ke-12.

MINI GP 2019 kekal sebagai model terpantas jenama Britain milik Jerman ini yang pernah diluluskan untuk penggunaan jalan raya. Enjin turbocharged 4 silinder 306hp accelerates hot hatch ini dari rehat hingga 100km / j hanya dalam masa 5.2 saat.

Secara rasmi dilancarkan ke dunia pada tahun 2019 di Los Angeles Auto Show dan seterusnya dihasilkan dalam edisi terhad sebanyak 3,000 unit di kilang MINI di Oxford. Penghantaran kepada peminat lumba di seluruh dunia bermula pada bulan Mac 2020. Menjelang Ogos 2020 sejumlah 10 unit sahaja tiba di Malaysia dan dilancarkan oleh BMW Malaysia. Dengan harga RM377k, kesemua 10 unit telah dijual sebelum sampai ke bilik pameran MINI di seluruh negara.

Berita baik untuk rakyat Malaysia yang ingin membeli GP MINI ini dan tidak dapat membuat pesanan untuk 10 unit awal dahulu. Seorang pengimport kereta terpakai Approved Permit swasta barhau saja mengiklankan dua unit yang siap dijual di bilik pameran di Lembah Klang.

Dengan harga RM385k, boleh dirunding, kedua-dua unit adalah kereta 2020. Ya, harga ini lebih RM8k dari harga jualan yang baharu, tetapi boleh dirunding dan ingat, ini adalah MINI edisi terhad.

Siaran Media: An intense, purist race feeling is conveyed by what is by far the most powerful engine ever to be used in a small car of the brand, suspension technology that is fine-tuned based on John Cooper Works’ comprehensive racing expertise and a body that is optimised in terms of lightweight construction, torsional stiffness and aerodynamics. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP offers unrivalled sporty flair and overwhelming agility. 

The exclusive character of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP, uncompromisingly geared towards extreme driving pleasure, is expressed in both its engine power and its performance characteristics. More clearly than ever before, its standing is at the very forefront of the MINI and John Cooper Works model range. Its additional output over and above that of the MINI John Cooper Works is 55 kW/75 hp. 

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP takes the experience of performance in a premium small car to a whole new level. In the course of test drives as part of the series development process, it completed a lap of the Nordschleife at Nürburgring in less than eight minutes – almost half a minute faster than its direct predecessor.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP: an overview of the highlights.

  • 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology, 225 kW/306 hp and 450 Nm.
  • 55 kW/75 hp more output than the MINI John Cooper Works.
  • Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, top speed: 265 km/h (not cut off).
  • Model-specific oil supply and cooling concept geared towards maximum performance.
  • Model-specific sports exhaust system for emotionally powerful sound.
  • 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission with integrated mechanical differential lock for the front wheels.
  • Distinctive chassis design and set-up, suspension lowered by 10 mm as compared to the MINI John Cooper Works.
  • Particularly high-performance sports brake system.
  • Extremely rigid body structure, engine and suspension connection.
  • Model-specific front and rear aprons.
  • Roof spoiler with double-wing contour.
  • Powerfully flared carbon wheel arch covers.

Impressive source of power: 4-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology.

A 4-cylinder engine designed for maximum performance and based on motor racing expertise delivers the power required for the thrilling performance characteristics of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP.

The 2.0-litre engine features the latest generation of MINI TwinPower Turbo technology as well as numerous precisely modified details that set it apart from the engine of the MINI John Cooper Works. Model-specific modifications include a reinforced crankshaft with enlarged main bearing diameter, specific pistons, bushless connecting rods and a new torsional vibration damper with optimised cooling.

Spontaneous power delivery, unbridled forward thrust.

The extensive modifications to the basic engine and to the MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology result in a particularly spontaneous response to every movement of the accelerator pedal as well as continuous development of power up into the high engine speed range. 

The 4-cylinder engine develops its maximum torque of 450 Nm at a speed of 1 750 rpm, maintaining this torque up into the 4 500 rpm range. The maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp is available between 5 000 and 6 250 rpm.

The resulting pulling power can be used for exceptionally spirited acceleration manoeuvres. The new MINI John Cooper Works GP sprints from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds. 

Thanks to the high elasticity of its engine, it is also capable of leaving higher-category sports cars behind on intermediate sprints. There is no artificial limit to the vehement forward thrust of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP – even at higher speeds. The top speed is 265 km/h.
