GP = 218 HP With Fully Adjustable Suspension?

autoblog discusses the leaked European specs for the MINI JCW GP found by MotoringFile.  If they are real, the GP will produce 218 horsepower and up to 206 pound-feet of torque (using an overboost feature), weigh about 100 pounds less than a 2012 JCW; and do 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.3 seconds with a top speed 150 mph. Supposedly it will get fully adjustable coilovers with an aggressive negative-camber front and rear setup to go with specially designed Kumho sport tires; six-piston front calipers and aerodynamics optimizations including a shield beneath the engine, a rear diffuser and a rear spoiler.
