Another GP review

From PistonHeads this time; a few more technical comments than generally seen:
… a larger intercooler with an extra two rows of cooling fins and a software upgrade that includes a 200rpm higher rev limit
While the rather bling body kit and wheels will make the extrovert swoon and the more retiring enthusiast run for cover, it has to be said that these parts are not just cosmetic. The basic Mini One has a drag coefficient of 0.38, and on the wide-tyred Cooper S, it is more like 0.39. Despite its larger wheels and tyres, the JCW GP has a significantly better Cd of 0.348, roughly a 10 per cent improvement.

  1. extrovert, eh? I guess that big, wide, fat flamboyant RED stripe right down the middle I’ve been thinking about might even fit the personality of the car. 🙂

    any comments? or photoshop jobs? 🙂 really wish I could do that!

  2. I plan to do TWO big fat wide red stripes! Isn’t it obvoius to everyone that is the only thing the car needs. Well and maybe some different wheels. 🙂
