That’s an additional 43 HP (44 PS / 32 kW) and 59 lb-ft (80 Nm) of torque over the inventory mannequin. Whereas Manhart hasn’t launched any acceleration figures, it seemingly shaved a few tenths of a second from the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) which in accordance with MINI, is accomplished in 5.2 seconds with the GP maxing out at 165 mph (265 km/h).

The aftermarket wheels, 8.5×19 inches on all 4 corners, shod in 235/30 tires, sport the same look, whereas the tune is accomplished by by shorter springs from AST Suspension, which drop the physique top by 0.Eight in (20 mm) on the entrance and 0.6 in (15 mm) on the rear.
