Owners Thoughts (if you care to read):

I am the original owner of this 2006 Mini Cooper S JCW GP, which I have decided to sell because of my new job driving constraints. Let me first say that I have had a spare-no-expense approach to this car since I have owned it.  Also, if you are new to knowing about this car just google it and you will quickly understand what it means to be an owner of a GP.  This car is limited - only 415 shipped to the US and all of us original owners were put on a waiting list to get one.  I have saved every piece of documentation including all of the flyers, mailers, and maintenance docs regarding this car.  All service has been done either at Mini of Peabody in Peabody, MA or Turner Motorsport in Amesbury, MA.  Over the 8 years of owning this car I have kept it garaged and pampered.  The car has a few really small dents around the body from miscellaneous road pebbles, etc. and normal driving conditions (see photos).  The body and paint otherwise is in excellent shape and is hard waxed 2 times a year.  The last price I got from our local Dent Wizard to remove the dents was around 500 dollars which I factored in when pricing the car.  I will do my best to take pictures of each dent for those who cannot come see the car in person.  For those people who have serious interest in this car and are not local, I can video gchat (on my phone) with you if you would like a full real-time tour of the car in order to show you as much as possible.  I also have the title in hand for those people who would need to register it and drive it home out of state (i.e. no waiting).  I am also including numerous extras, as noted above, which are included in the list price.

Please note: If you want a used Mini Cooper S (as opposed to a JCW GP) you probably should just buy a used Mini Cooper S, which you could pick up for 10k-15k anywhere.  If you want a car that you rarely, if ever, see on the road and when you do, you pull over to meet the person (jump high five included), make note of the number on the roof, talk about how much you love the car, and what you have done to it, you probably are looking for a GP.  Are you looking for the fastest production Mini ever made (pre 2013, new model might be a few clicks more)? Are you looking for the most bad-a$$ production Cooper ever made? If yes, then I would recommend the GP.  I would also recommend reading the background about this car before jumping into emailing me questions.  For instance, this car has no back seats, nor a rear windshield your research, please.  Also take a look and inform yourself to what other GP's are selling for.  Do not compare a GP to any other John Cooper Works or S models. There are not many for sale out there, some are collector minded and some are low miles.  There are a lot of forums out there for GP owners too - sign up and ask some questions if you need to.  If you have any other specific questions please do not hesitate to ask, but please do not waste my or your time 'tire kicking' or nickel and dimming me.  This is a serious car for a serious and spirited driver who loves Mini and wants the coolest one made to date.  Thanks for reading and checking out this listing.

Additional Photos:  Let me know and I can send you a link (the ebay gods do not allow it in the listing) There are a lot more photos and most have comments and descriptions.  Leave me a comment if you have any questions.


The car located in Massachusetts, the buyer is responsible for all shipment costs and coordination.  I will help with timing and make myself available for test drives for serious buyers only.

Mini knows how you take your coffee after a test drive

Thu, 11 Oct 2012 16:58:00 EST

Mini Netherlands wanted to give its countrymen a good reason to test drive its cars, so it threw in a free cup of coffee with the spin - but not just any old cuppa joe. Cars were fitted with a sensor that analyzed the driver's style. The chip was then placed in a special coffeemaker that produced a blend to match the driving; middle-of-the-road test pilots would get a lungo (long) coffee, test-the-rollcage types were given a ristretto (short, and stronger).
The knock on the head for U.S. drivers? Milquetoast test drivers were given an Americano - a watered-down espresso. You can watch the unique promotion at work in the video below.

2013 Mini John Cooper Works

Tue, 30 Apr 2013 11:57:00 EST

Location, Location, Location
Back in February, Mini invited me to come try out its brand-new Paceman coupe-crossover-hatchback thing in Puerto Rico, and not long after, I spit out a Quick Spin detailing my impressions of the little-big two-door. But here's what I didn't tell you: Mini also let me loose on those fine, curvaceous, tropical roads in its hottest hatch, the John Cooper Works GP. And while that behind-the-wheel gigglefest would have no doubt made for a story laden with positive notes and warm regards, the truth is, I only drove it for 15 minutes, so I couldn't in good conscience offer much of a story to you. (European Editor Matt Davis also got a short stint behind the wheel of the GP late last year.)
So for the sake of due diligence, I buckled down and spent a full eight days with the JCW GP back home in Detroit, just as springtime was starting to stick here in southeast Michigan. But after my time with the Mini, I was wishing that I could have just been left with my GP memories from Puerto Rico, where I was pushing the little hotbox hard around smooth corners and flexing every one of its muscles to eke out the full JCW GP experience in only a short timeframe.

Mini forgets to bring car to LA, shows Citysurfer concept scooter

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 20:05:00 EST

See that red thing? It's the Mini Citysurfer Concept. It is not, in case you were wondering, an automobile. Yet despite this apparent shortcoming, Mini has placed it on a plinth at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The electric scooter weighs in at 40 pounds, can hit 15 miles per hour, cover 10 to 15 miles and can be folded up and charged in the trunk of a Mini Cooper (or any other vehicle with a 12-volt outlet and a roomy enough cargo area). According to the British marque, these qualities will give the scooter's owner the "spontaneous and convenient mobility even in those sections of an urban area not accessible to motorized vehicles."
It's not terribly difficult to see the appeal, as Mini explains it. With urban congestion becoming an increasingly serious problem - and some cities beginning to ban cars outright - the idea of an easy to charge and easy to stow runabout is extremely attractive. That's doubly true in the case of the Citysurfer, which is rather well equipped, as far as scooters go.
