AutoComplete: Mini is building another John Cooper Works GP model and we're psyched
Here's what making news on Road Show.
Mini is giving its die-hard fans something new to lust after with the announcement of a new John Cooper Works GP spec Cooper Concept.
We've seen GP models twice so far, once in 2016 in kit form and again in 2012 as a standalone model and both were awesome.
The folks from Mini are being cagey with details but we'd expect more power and less weight if history is anything to go by.
Elon Musk has taken to Twitter once again.
This time, to talk the benefits of the forthcoming Supercharger version 3 and an increased Supercharger networks.
He claims that V3 which is due in 2018 will charge significantly faster than the current Superchargers.
And that the network expansion should put Superchargers with an easy access of 95 to 100% of the US populace.
Hot hatch nerds must be feeling spoiled right now, because in addition to the previously mentioned GP model, Mini is also debuting a new, special edition John Cooper Works trim called Knights, that's K, n, i, g, h, t, s, that we'll see for the first time next week at the LA Auto Show.
This version is mostly an appearance package, but does come with the new exhaust system from the John Cooper Works accessories catalog, so it should sound great.

We'll talk to you tomorrow.
