MINI Asia and British United Automobiles Inc. today announced the launch of the MINI John Cooper Works GP Inspired Edition in the Philippines. This special model draws upon the mettle of its forebear, the third-generation MINI John Cooper Works GP, and features exclusive specifications and an exhilarating 231 hp engine in the quintessential 3 Door hatchback.
Mr Kidd Yam, Head of MINI Asia, said, “We received overwhelming response for the MINI John Cooper Works GP when we introduced the car in the Philippines in October last year. As such, we’ve specially developed the MINI John Cooper Works GP Inspired Edition to cater for fans who weren’t able to get their hands on the original, but still want to own a unique piece of motorsports history. This special edition was first conceptualised in Singapore, and only 5 units will be available in the Philippines.”
Mr Willy Tee Ten, President of MINI Philippines and Autohub Group of Companies, also said, “MINI has a longstanding history in motor racing, and the John Cooper Works range draws on this experience to bring authentic racetrack flair to the road. The MINI John Cooper Works GP Inspired Edition packs on the essence of John Cooper Works, and we are very pleased to launch this highly-anticipated model here in the Philippines.”
