We’ve got full details on the GP devliery program MINI USA announced last week. MINI will be building just enough of these cars in July to allow each dealer to submit one customer to participate in this unique Delivery Program. Since production does not resume on the GP until September, customers who participate will have bragging rights to be among the 80 of the first owners.
