MINI USA released pricing and allotment information for the MINI John Cooper Works GP. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price is $39,950 (including the $700 Destination & Handling charge).
The US will receive 500 GPs with one car allotted to each dealership (115 cars). The other 385 GPs will be sold through a special 800 phone number. Original owners of the 2006 MINI GP will be given a couple weeks to order a new MINI JCW GP before the ordering begins for everyone else. The cars are scheduled to arrive in the first quarter of 2013.
We have heard that MINI USA might offer numbered GPs:
We are currently working with the MINI Design house to have numbers added that would perfectly match the red decals on the GP. These numbers will be exclusive to the US market.
More information when we get it.
