It's a spiritual successor to two different Mini models -- the 2012 JCW GP and the 2006 Mini Cooper S with the JCW GP Kit.

A new body kit widens the Mini considerably, with very aggressive bumpers, wide side skirts and a big wing out back.

Many of the parts are carbon fiber, and there's a bunch of red accents, because red is the sportiest color.

The wing looks like it could push the car through to the center of the planet.

Since it's just a figment of Mini's imagination, there was no information on power output or other racing-drivetrain bits.

Inside, there's a proper roll cage for safety, five-point harnesses and racing seats.

A lack of weight-adding creature comforts like complicated door panels, carpeting and a back seat also hints at its racing nature.

If you'll be in Frankfurt, be sure to give this concept a bit of your time.
