THE MINI COOPER

The original, iconic Mini was always going to be a hard act to follow but the new 21st Century Mini, created by brand owners BMW, has taken over where the old one left off, immediately establishing itself as a chic mode of transport for fashion-conscious urbanites as well as an immense commercial success. Launched as a three-door hatchback, which many maintain is what the original should have been from the outset, the new Mini is bigger in every respect than its forebear while the clever retro styling nevertheless maintains close visual links with Issigonis's masterpiece.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This vicious Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works GP is one of just 415 examples made for the U.S. Market. The John Cooper Works GP featured a special aero package, carbon fiber rear spoiler, revised suspension and brakes, rear seat delete, tuned engine management system and a limited-slip differential. Combined with the Mini Cooper's excellent handing and driving characteristics it became a true race car for the road. The car was equipped with a supercharged 1.6-liter SOHC inline four-cylinder engine, sending power to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transaxle. All examples built were assembled by Bertone in Italy and finished in Thunder Blue with silver roof. The example offered here has been treated to further performance upgrades such as an OSG Clutch, flywheel and short shifter, high flow cylinder head, MOMO seats and steering wheel. Receipts show over $28,000 worth of upgrades were performed by Mini Madness in Hillsboro, OR. The accident-free Carfax shows three previous owners and that the car has been in Texas, Colorado and Michigan, while covering only 4,033 miles as shown on the odometer at the time of cataloguing. Here is a rare opportunity, to acquire a low mileage example of these limited edition, extremely fast little John Cooper Works GP "hot hatch's".
