John Cooper Works garage closes doors
The John Cooper Works package of mods can now be had from the factory on the new limited-edition MINI GP, though practically every MINI dealership now has the ability to install the tuning kit themselves.
Despite closing the garage, Mike Cooper plans on continuing his father's work of producing more tuning kits and performance upgrades for MINIs. In fact, as its partnership with BMW strengthens, one might expect John Cooper Works to become MINI's own AMG- or SRT-like tuning arm.
