    I've not been able to get the link to work (it's nothing to do with the link - I think it's the internet where I am) so apologies if what I'm about to ask has an obvious answer.

    I've been able to find one of the interior shots through Google but I can't tell which test mule it's an interior shot of - do we know whether the interior spy shots have come from the black test car or the track-wrapped one?

    If it's the black one then I wouldn't be too concerned as the black one just looks to be a regular F56 with development mods. If it's the track-wrapped one then yeah... it's a little disappointing inside.

    As it is, I'd personally welcome a sat-nav on the GP. I'm not sure how much weight it would really save by removing it (particularly if all the screens are going to be there anyway) and it would certainly make the car that bit more usable.

At this rate, I think I'll be going down the tuning route on my own car rather than bunging £35-40k on a new one.
    Yeah, itís always baffled me as well.
    The GP1 did not have a rear wiper to save a couple of kg in weight. They then slapped two 25kg Recaros in the front !!!

    Unless there's more interior shots that show which test car we're looking at then I'd be inclined to believe it's the black test car as the steering wheel in the pic looks more like a Cooper S wheel than a JCW or even GP one.

    Well they definitely aren't caring about weight saving by putting an auto inside

    Thatís the way that all manufacturers are going sadly.
    As of this year AUDI will not be selling one single manual model in America. Itíll be the same here in a few years...

    Yeah and I can understand why they are doing it.

    Just a shame because in my opinion nothing is more engaging than a mini with a manual

    Better keep hold of mine as it might be worth a fortune in years to come

    There is yellow camo on the wingmirror in the picture which isn’t the black car and not the test car with the red track camo. I would say it’s one of the test cars we seen earlier in the year. These pictures could have been getting sat on for a while. I’m not fussed about not seeing a different dash or alcantara wheel at is point but was hoping for a nice seat
