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.

p.s. all modifications/upgrades to this car can be undone however I have taken tremendous care to conceal aftermarket items in order to preserve this special edition car, while still upgrading beyond some of the OEM Mini standard stuff.  

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.  If the buyer needs to fly in to drive the car home, I am can meet at the airport or Bus stations locally.

Next Mini Countryman spotted with swirls

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 17:00:00 EST

Mini is continuing to update its models onto its latest UKL front-wheel-drive platform that it shares with parent BMW. Here, our spies caught an early glimpse of the next-gen Countryman testing on the new chassis.
Like the rest of the updated Mini lineup, the latest Countryman doesn't exactly show a huge shift in styling from the current version. The front end appears to be slightly more blunt, and the headlights have a redesigned shape. However, behind the A-pillar the differences seem to be pretty subtle. At the rear, the new Countryman also looks to adopt the brand's rounded rectangle taillights protruding into the hatch like on the standard Cooper Hardtop range. While not shown here, our spies claim that Mini is also aiming for a roomier interior for the upcoming crossover so that it can be more competitive in its class.
At least for now, the Countryman is going to be the largest vehicle in the Mini range, according to an earlier statement from chief designer Anders Warming. The CUV is rumored to debut around 2016 with some assembly possibly done at Mini's plant in the Netherlands. Until then, have a look at these spy shots and tell us what you think.

Mini John Cooper Works gets ready to rumble

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 15:00:00 EST

Mini gave us our first taste of its next-generation John Cooper Works Hardtop in concept form at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. And in fact, we already know that the production version will make its debut at the 2015 Detroit show in January. Fitting, then, that this most recent round of spy shots shows a JCW that's pretty much ready to roll - peel back that yellow swirly paper, and you've pretty much got the final deal.
It's easy to make out the final design for the revised front and rear fascias, and we can clearly see a more robust brake package nestled behind those alloy wheels. Speaking of, we must admit, the wheels here look rather pedestrian for a JCW model, but they could just be prototype rollers and not indicative of the final rolling stock. We expect the flashy red decals of the concept to be offered on the production model, as well, though they could be optional kit.
As reported earlier, power is expected to come from a 230-horsepower turbo-four - a modest increase over the 208 hp from the outgoing Mini JCW. Expect that to route through a six-speed manual transmission, sending turbocharged oomph to the front wheels.
