Kumho the exclusive tyre supplier of MINI John Cooper Works GP

4th February 2013

Well-known tyre manufacturer Kumho has been revealed as the exclusive tyre supplier for the new limited-edition MINI John Cooper Works GP vehicle.

Billed to be the fastest ever MINI car to launch onto the road, the stylish motor has been made even more eye-catching by being fitted with Kumho's road-legal, semi-slick ECSTA V70A tyres.

The products from Kumho are designed in a new 215/40 ZR17 83W size, which have been developed in conjunction with BMW and specifically for use on the all-new MINI GP.

Drivers have already been shown the amazing capability of the MINI John Cooper Works GP car with the Kumho tyres fitted, via a test session around the challenging Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit.

The vehicle, which has the ability to boast a blistering 218hp, was able to complete a lap of the German-based track in eight minutes 23 seconds – a full 19 seconds quicker than what a standard MINI Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit installed managed back in 2006.

ATS Euromaster is always on call for those looking to buy cheap and effective tyres online.
