Mini will officially unveil the 2013 John Cooper Works GP hardtop at the 2012 Paris Motor Show later this month, and the automaker has released the official specs – as well as a brace of new images – revealing that earlier speculation was indeed fact.

So, let's get to the good stuff. Engine: turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four with 218 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque, as well as an overboost function that's able to churn out 207 lb-ft of twist for brief moments. Suspension: fully adjustable coilover setup that allows the car to be lowered up to 20 millimeters and features increased front camber to better keep the high-performance sport tires stuck the ground. Weight: 2,558 pounds. 0-62 miles per hour: 6.3 seconds.

Other enhancements for the JCW GP include upgraded brakes, unique 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels and a beefy exterior aero kit that's reminiscent of the JCW GP from 2006. Inside, the rear seats have been removed, Recaro chairs have been fitted for the driver and passenger, and sporty elements like red accents and alcantara trim are now found throughout the cabin.

It's absolutely awesome when manufacturers do this sort of thing from the factory. It has adjustable coilovers. Looks like it will be a blast to drive! I don't care for all the GP monikers though.

If it's in line with the other high-end Mini's I'd expect it to be near 40k. I'm sure it will be a blast to drive.
