The limited edition Mini John Cooper Works GP has been hailed as the best performance car under $100,000 in MOTOR Magazine’s annual Bang for your Bucks awards. The powerful pocket rocket proved its race track credibility and stole the BFYB crown from an impressive line-up of four, six and even eight-cylinder vehicles.

One BFYB judge described the JCW GP as: “the most talented Bang winner in ages”, while another dubbed it as “the best Mini I’ve ever driven, especially on a track”.

The Mini JCW GP arrived in Australia earlier this year and has received an excellent reception from the general public and motoring media alike, topped off by claiming the BFYB award. The vehicle was designed to shine on a race track and is the fastest production Mini ever built.

Additionally the stopping also impresses; A BFYB judge declared “the GP aces the field on braking distance from 100km/h” – a result achieved thanks to an individual traction control system, bespoke racing suspension and exclusive 17-inch rims which house the high performance braking system including a six piston fixed front brake caliper.“

BMW Group Australia managing director, Phil Horton, is thrilled with the JCW GP’s win. “We’re absolutely delighted to win Motor Magazine’s 2013 BFYB award,” Horton said.
“Our entire MINI range, including the original hatch and the just released Paceman, are renowned for being tons of fun on the road, as well as on the race track. It’s great to see that Australia’s most popular performance magazine thinks so too.”

(The 2013 Bang for your Bucks incorporated two full days of intensive track testing, conducted and judged by a group of some of the most experienced and knowledgeable road testers in Australia.)
