Hankook exclusive tyre supplier to the latest limited edition MINI John Cooper Works GP

Hankook Tire is the exclusive tyre supplier to the latest version of the limited MINI John Cooper Works GP cars.

The MINI John Cooper Works GP and its specially developed collection of Hankook tyres are a perfect match: The new MINI John Cooper Works GP, which hashas production limited to 3,000 cars worldwide, is exclusively fitted with Hankook's all-new Ultra-Ultra-High Performance (UUHP) summer tyre Ventus S1 Evo Z.

For those looking to test the performance of the MINI John Cooper Works GP, Hankook also provides the Ventus TD (Track Day), a road-legal sports tyre, designed to check out the car's core abilities on the racetrack.
To ensure the new high-end MINI can be safely driven during the cold season, Hankook's UHP winter tyre I*cept evo 2 was added to the tyre line-up.

Hankook's development engineers and MINI took extra care to ensure that the car and both summer tyres, the Ventus S1 evo Z as well as the Ventus TD, are up for a challenge by checking their race qualities at the demanding race tracks in Nardo, Italy and the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP is the British brand's fastest model to ever be approved for road use – the 306hp engine accelerates the car from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.2 seconds.

Outstanding handling performance, the best lap times as well as impressive dry braking capabilities are key features that have been a developmental focus for all three tyres Hankook supplies to this extraordinary MINI model.

"To be the sole supplier to this rarity with racing genes was not only a big honour and a big responsibility – it also met with a lot of passion in our developers' team," says Klaus Krause, head of the European research and development center at Hankook.
