  • Only 32,000 miles from new
  • One of the most sought after modern Mini variants among enthusiasts
  • Very apt registration number
  • Believed to be 1 of only 288 UK right-hand drive variants produced

Commonly referred to as the GP2, the 2013 John Cooper Works GP is a limited-edition, track-oriented version of the regular John Cooper Works hatchback based loosely on the JCW Challenge race car. Production was limited to 2,000 units worldwide, with just 288 UK supplied. The GP2 boasts a 218-hp (214 for US models) turbo-charged 1.6 L direct-injected four-cylinder engine, giving it a 0–60 mph time of 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph. The engine is essentially identical to the N18 used in other 2013 John Cooper Works models, with a slight increase in compression accounting for the modest power gain. In keeping with its uncompromising roots, a 6-speed manual gearbox was the only transmission offered. The GP2 also features exclusive 17” wheels, high-performance tyres designed in a special partnership with Kumho, adjustable coil-over suspension with revised geometry unique to the GP, 6-piston Brembo front calipers borrowed from the BMW 135i, a full valance tray and functional rear diffuser, a hatch-mounted spoiler with carbon fibre element, ed mirror caps, brake ducts, signature badging, a pair of special-edition Recaro sport seats (complete with side-impact airbags), and deletion of the rear seats to save weight.

Registered new on the 25th of October 2013, the John Cooper Works offered is wearing the apt registration number ‘GP02 HMP’, drawing reference from the JCW GP2 model and ‘Her Majesty's Pleasure’ (or HM Prison) as per the Cooper S featured in the movie The Italian Job (1969). This very well-presented Mini John Cooper Works GP2 edition is a very highly specified example and the performance certainly matches the appearance. The exterior looks striking in the special edition Thunder Grey Metallic paint, with the vehicle graphics including the number ‘1,760’ referencing the production number as part of the total global production volume of just 2,000 units. Having covered just circa 32,000 miles from new and with just four former keepers, there are three service stamps in the book. This is a fine limited edition example that has clearly been well looked after by its former keepers. Rated by the vendor as 'Excellent' in all regards (bodywork, paintwork, engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, and interior trim), the vehicle comes with the service record, V5C, and an MOT until November.
