The latest N.A.D.A Classic, Collectible, and Special Interest Auto Appraisal Guide shows something GP owners have been waiting (and likely hoping) to hear – the 2006 JCW GP is now appreciating in price.

They indicate that, with an MSRP of $31150, the GP has a value range of low 28,325, average $31,550, and high of $34,900. In total 2000 John Cooper Works GPs were manufactured (415 being imported to the U.S).

So far the GP seems to be that very rare case of a contemporary special edition actually gaining in value from original MSRP.
