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 wiper...do 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.

Shipping

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.

Road & Track names its 2013 Performance Car of the Year

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 19:13:00 EST

Road & Track recently staged its first annual Performance Car of the Year test, pitting 13 new and updated performance cars against each other on track, then graduating the top six to a road test before picking a winner. Additionally, the magazine staff picked the best automobiles of the year in eight categories.
But first, let's cover the PCotY segment. Here's the list of cars brought to the comparison test: Audi R8 V10 Plus; BMW 435i; BMW M6 Competition Package; Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51; Ferrari F12 Berlinetta; Ford Fiesta ST; Jaguar F-Type V8 S; Jaguar XFR-S; Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model Wagon; Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series; Mini John Cooper Works GP; Nissan GT-R Track Edition; and Porsche Cayman S.
To find out the results of the comparison, head over to Road & Track's website or check the press release below, where you'll also find the magazine's top-rated vehicles in eight categories. Want more? Head over to the 2013 PCotY hub. But before you do that, take a stab at guessing the winner of PCotY (we'll give you one hint: it isn't a Porsche).

2014 Mini Cooper rockets into view

Mon, 01 Jul 2013 09:57:00 EST

Here it is, all but undisguised. We've been clocking the 2014 Mini Cooper for months now, but engineers' well-placed camouflage has meant that our views have been very limited. Today, though, the disguises have been cast aside and the new Mini has been revealed in both standard and Cooper S form during a photo shoot, and there are some real surprises afoot.
For one, we had no idea that the Cooper would adopt the LED daytime running lamp corona headlamps from the much-loved 2011 Rocketman concept, but there they are, looking both unique and a little frightened. The front grille has been resculpted and and is now more rounded, integrating the bumper strike face in matte black. In fact, the entire nose looks a bit more rounded to our eyes, with all variants carrying a small but noticeable power bulge (shown here on the S model above the intake slot in the hood). The profile looks largely unchanged save for a slightly faster windshield, but the rear picks up a set of oversized taillamps that we'll likely have to see in person to get comfortable with. Our spy shooters tell us that the 2014 Cooper, codenamed F56, appears to be slightly larger in the metal than its predecessor, as expected, with much of that length coming in the form of a longer front overhang (perhaps to assist with pedestrian safety regulations).
Expected to ride atop the same UKL architecture shared with the upcoming BMW 1 Series GT and MPV, the entire line of Coopers may move to an all three-cylinder lineup, including BMW's 1.5-liter I3 that features a twin-scroll turbo, direct injection and variable valve timing, a combination good for anywhere between 120 to 200 horsepower. Eventually, higher-performance models could generate up to 300 horsepower out of this tiny engine. Our well-connected lensmen suggest that at least one four-cylinder engine might carry over to the launch of this new generation, but it may only be available for the first model year.

Mini Clubvan axed after just 50 sales

Wed, 17 Jul 2013 17:59:00 EST

Well, that didn't last long. According to Green Car Reports, Mini has discontinued the Clubvan from its model range in the United States.
Nathalie Bauters, Mini's US communications manager, cited "relatively low demand and the effect of an excessive 25-percent tax on vehicles for commercial use (known as 'the Chicken Tax')" as the key reasons for axing the Clubman from our market, GCR reports. The 2013 Clubvan launched in the US earlier this year, and to date roughly 50 examples have been sold.
The Clubvan, based on the Clubman model, features a flat load floor behind the two front seats, with blacked-out (well, body-colored) side windows. This nifty little cargo wagon could carry up to 33 cubic feet of goods, which while useful, pales in comparison to more capacious offerings like the Ford Transit Connect van.
