collectibles: 2013 MINI John Cooper Works GP brochure

2013 MINI John Cooper Works GP brochureA COLLECTOR’S ITEM YOU’LL DEFINITELY WANT TO TAKE OUT OF THE BOX.

THE 2013 MINI JOHN COOPER WORKS GP. THE FASTEST PRODUCTION MINI EVER.

After a six-year hiatus, the fastest production MINI is back with exclusive powertrain, chassis and aerodynamic technologies inspired directly by time on the track. And while it’s scarcely available for even he keenest collectors, a MINI that will lap the Nürburgring in 8:23 is going to be hard not to play with.

Because each MINI dealer will receive only one GP, with the rest being ordered by telephone, MINI USA created a simple single-fold, four-page brochure for the MINI JCW GP.

Inside is a list of Technical Data including Engine, Performance, Weight/Capacity, and Wheels.  Images highlight the GP’s 211 hp engine, adjustable suspension, Recaro seats, rear brace, aerodynamic rear spoiler, and unique 17″ light alloy wheels.
