This blurry screen grab was taken from a brief video showing what appears to be a new MINI JCW GP prototype. The footage was filmed in Germany and provides a few clues with its camouflage covering the large rear wing and revised lower valance/wannabe diffuser. Minor engine improvements are likely, along with model-specific suspension and alloy wheels.
The upcoming MINI United event in May shapes as the most likely launch date for the â€˜GP2â€™. The original MINI JCW GP was first revealed at the 2005 MINI United gathering. If that’s the case then we only have a couple of months to wait.
