The company released only three pictures of the details, explaining that the development of the version GP “is entering a decisive phase”. Tested on the race track has just started and will last for several months, because the suspension created specifically for this model.

The concept was presented in Frankfurt without a Declaration of performance and nevertheless has caused public “euphoric reaction”. Externally, the Mini JCW GP was impressive aerodynamic bodywork and the décor of carbon fiber, and the inside is bare metal, because all the excess removed for the sake of reducing weight.

The precursors of the new “lighter” officially Mini Cooper S GP 2006 and the Mini JCW GP, which was released in 2012. Then the motor was boosted to 218 HP, and buyers have simply wiped out the cars from the shelves: 2444 pieces in the first case, and 2,000 in the second. “Since then they both have become coveted collectibles, and fans of the brands MINI and John Cooper Works look forward to the emergence of new models,” says the company.

“That sounds controversial, but I believe that after the development of the car and weight of components to it, you can probably design most of the other things […] is important To me that I was creative, this is a stimulus to life,” says Kalam on the eve of his 65th birthday.

A month ago Ian Callum left brand Jaguar, where he worked for 20 years, explaining that it’s “time for personal and professional development.” Now in the British Warwick has started a new company Callum with specialization in “design and engineering business,” “integrated design, development and manufacturing of small series and custom”. Kellam in the firm are not major, and one of the founders. He admits that he is already working on the appearance of a new car.

The company Callum four “fathers” (left to right): technical Director Adam Donfrancesco (Noble, Aston Martin Vantage GT8 and GT12, the Jaguar F-type GT4), design Director Ian Callum, commercial Director Tom bird (PwC, Barclays, Jaguar Land Rover, Jaguar C-X75), program Director David Fairbairn (18 years of experience in the automotive industry, Jaguar Lightweight E-type).

“The focus [of the company Callum] will be only those things that we like. I don’t want to design the interior of a train or a kettle. I was interested in doing art, not pure practicality, explained Ian in an interview with Top Gear. — The new car will be. This is a large and ambitious project. Chassis, power plant, exterior, interior — we’re going to work through. One day I want to build a machine entirely, and it is a good place to start”.

In an interview with Pistonheads online designer added: “I want to take some of those cars are worked, and slightly alter them. I have such a right, whether Aston or Jaguar. This is a good starting point to engage in promising projects. Don’t want them to think I was just a store.”

“My name hanging over the door, but if I want to succeed I need to surround yourself with good people […] In the team’s four Directors, all with equal rights, there’s no hierarchy,” explains Ian. Stylized letter “C” — company logo Callum.

In Warwick the company of 18 employees is situated on an indiscreet area in 1858 m2. All the necessary equipment and the latest technologies are available (like with the support of an unnamed investor). In mind there are providers and contractors. Details about the first draft will be published “in the coming weeks.” Ian Callum seem happy: “I was very lucky. Don’t get me wrong, but now I have the choice of what to do each day. I’ll be the designer of your future. I had, maybe, 15 years old, and I want to use them to the maximum.”
