  • A four-cylinder turbo engine with 225kW paired with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology delivers a MINI that is as at home on the racetrack as it is on the road
  • Five vehicles secured for New Zealand are all sold


MINI New Zealand has announced the pricing for the third-generation John Cooper Works GP arriving into New Zealand mid-next year.

The fastest MINI ever promises extreme driving fun and a purist racetrack feeling for buyers. The limited-production MINI – just 3,000 produced globally – has already seen high demand, with eager drivers having purchased the country’s entire allocation.

Launching from $73,900*, the MINI John Cooper Works GP is the most powerful MINI ever to be approved for road use.  The 225 kW four-cylinder turbocharged engine accelerates from zero to 100km/h in just 5.2 seconds. With its windy roads from top to bottom, New Zealand is the perfect playground to make the most of the car’s performance.

“The MINI John Cooper Works GP sets new benchmarks for performance in the premium small car segment,” says Chris Roe, head of MINI New Zealand.

“Bringing MINI’s rich racing history to life, this car is sure to take pride of place for MINI collectors and fans around the country.

As expected, the MINI John Cooper Works GP has been hugely popular in Australia and New Zealand. We are still months away from its arrival, however I can confirm that demand has well and truly exceeded our allocation and all five GPs destined for New Zealand have been sold,” he said.

Boasting impressive engine power, model-specific suspension technology harmonised with John Cooper Works motor racing expertise, weight-optimised construction and precisely defined aerodynamic properties, it’s fair to say this racing machine has set the benchmark in the small car segment.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
