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.

Mini John Cooper Works Paceman is a potent little hot hatch in a fat suit

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 16:49:00 EST

If there's one thing we're never going to complain about, it's that Mini has found it necessary to put the John Cooper Works treatment on every single one of its models. We love the JCW package across the board, and the final installment of the high-performance chapter (for now, anyway) comes in the form of the John Cooper Works Paceman, debuting here at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
The John Cooper Works formula hasn't been altered in any way here, and like the JCW Countryman on which the Paceman is based, it comes standard with Mini's All4 all-wheel-drive system. We're sure it'll be a total hoot, and with 218 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque on tap, how could it not?
Look for the Mini JCW Paceman to hit dealerships in March of this year. Need to know more? Scroll down.

Mini pokes fun at Anthony Weiner using fake Twitter account

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 14:27:00 EST

Mini, never one to pass on a marketing opportunity, has pounced on the plight of embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, who seems to have an issue with sending pictures of his genitals to young women. Observers will notice that this is the second time the unfortunately named Mr. Weiner has been in the spotlight for his picture messages.
Capitalizing on Weiner's alias, Carlos Danger, Mini has created an account on Twitter - @CarlosDMotor. With a note on the profile page listing "Danger" as the account's middle name, it's sent out just one tweet, containing the message, "Wanna get your hands on my stick?" Attached to the Tweet is a scantily clad Mini Cooper S, with a towel around its "waist" snapping a picture. Too soon? To borrow the brilliant pun from AdWeek, the "auto erotica" was the idea of Mini's marketing agency Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners. Click below for the full tweet.

Mini JCW GP to be hatchback only, no 'Ring record attempt in sight

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 18:00:00 EST

The 2013 Mini John Cooper Works GP is dropping weight and lowering its lap times, but one thing it won't be losing is its flat roof. Like the original JCW GP package, Evo says that despite the fact that sportier Mini Coupes have been caught testing, the new GP will only be offered in the three-door Cooper hatchback body style. And that's perfectly fine with us.
Evo spoke with GP development chief Jorg Weidinger who said that as a part of the car's history, "It was a hatch, it is a hatch and it should stay a hatch." Weidinger also said that Mini is not planning to set any Nürburgring records with the new JCW GP even though earlier reports indicate that the car is a full 20 seconds faster around the 'Ring than its 2006 predecessor.
The new Mini John Cooper Works GP weighs 121 pounds less than the John Cooper Works Hardtop, offers a fully adjustable coil-over suspension and it will have a starting price of $39,950, (including $700 for destination) when it goes on sale later this year.
