2020 Mini JCW GP Looks Wild, Sounds Tamed During Dynamic Debut

The 2020 Mini JCW GP made its dynamic debut at Goodwood. The subcompact hot hatch was thrown on the course in pre-production form, demonstrating its agility and revealing a very tamed exhaust sound.

Set to become the company’s most extreme street-legal car ever, the new JCW GP will throw a heavy punch at the Volkswagen Polo GTI, Ford Fiesta ST and Renault Clio RS. However, it will do so with about 100 horsepower more, as the 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder that’s expected to power it is thought to push out over 300 HP.

In terms of performance, it will wipe the floor with its direct competitors and will probably teach a lesson or two to vehicles from the class above, like the Volkswagen Golf R, Mercedes-AMG A35 and new BMW M135i. All three have about the same output on tap, but are bigger and heavier, which will (in theory) make them ripe targets for the compact, lightweight Mini.

It won’t be for everyone, though – and not just because it’s going to be pricey. The car firm decided to put a cap on the production of the JCW GP. Thus, only 3,000 will be made, so those looking to secure a build slot should wait for Mini to unveil it, perhaps at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in a couple of months, and place a deposit ASAP.

    It doesn’t look wild. It looks ridiculous and rice. Poo.
    I’m sure it goes well, though.
