    Long awaited, and thankfully from the 3 teaser images the looks are far tamer than the concept

    Love those wheels. Really glad they've kept the GP design for them.

    Man. Literally the worst thing you could have posted Mark at this time of night. No chance I'm sleeping now Far too excited.

    Iím sorry but thereís no way that rear spoiler will be allowed on European roads. Itíd slice chunks out of a pedestrian if you hit one with that on the car.
    If theyíve banned the Camaro ZL1 1LE because of these wee canards...

    ...I personally think that itís gonna have to have a major redesign to be allowed on the roads.

    Isnt there a big rule about front end protrusions though. Because there are plenty cars on our roads with wings with potential decapitating abilities.

    If they can allow this I'm sure they would get away with the gp3 wing

    Yeah, itís stupid what is/isnít allowed.
    Maybe the Camaro was banned because Merc/BMW/AUDI complained about it and didnít want a Yank motor spanking their arses on the tracks.

    Here's the BMW/ MINI Corporate statement. Wanted to find this to verify the "more than 300hp" claims.

    I wonder why theyíve gone against the previous 2000 units for the GP 1 & 2 and upped it to 3000 units for the GP3 ?
    I can only guess that they just know that theyíll sell them all...
