The MINI John Cooper Works GP completed a lap at the Nordschleife in just eight minutes, twenty-three seconds. That’s equivalent to an E46 M3 or R-32 Skyline, so this little guy is no slouch. There are 218 ponies under the hood, driven by a twin-scroll turbocharger, variable valve timing, and direct injection to get things going. Keeping the contact patch optimal is a coil-over suspension system that inverts the front shocks to increase longitudinal and lateral stiffness. There were only 2,000 of these models built and they were all sold in Europe so, for many, Forza games are the only shot they’ll have to experience this one-of-a-kind ride.

Performance

Being upgraded with an AWD drivetrain, the Horizon Edition variant only requires 3.6 seconds from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) and has a lower front weight percentage than its stock counterpart, which is 55% instead of 61%. It performs above average in terms of handling due to possessing nimble driving characteristics along with highly capable brakes that rival those from lightweight Extreme Track Toys cars. However, as it is fitted with a stock 1.6L I4 - Turbo Rally swap, the Horizon Edition already tops out at 155 mph (250 km/h), making it a more useful choice for short tracks.

Trivia

  • The Mini John Cooper Works GP is available as a Horizon Rental car in Forza Horizon 3.
