Most would think a John Cooper Works MINI is special enough, but MINI has recently announced an even more exclusive version of the vehicle. Dubbed the “MINI John Cooper Works GP Edition”, MINI has decided to do a limited run of only 2,000 of these vehicles.

This means the GP Edition is faster around the ‘Ring than a Lotus Exige S, Jaguar XKR, or Audi RS4! We can’t wait to see this little racer in person.
