    Everyone who said they would buy a JCW as soon as the JCW aerokit came on it standard from the factory better get their $50k ready :)

    The JCW aero kit already comes standard in the UK.

    The car pictured also has Nav, even though it isn’t listed on either list. Or is it the new “mission control”? Regardless of value, many people will pay a large premium for a factory built exclusive edition numbering only 250. At $50,000 they will have plenty of buyers. Add to that all the people that want non-metallic Racing Green and don’t know if it will be offered again.

    umm.. at that price they may be building too many of them. I can just see them sitting on dealer lots..

  • mp

    When you add up all the options the price comes in around $37000 .

    Seems that they really dont want to sell these or maybe they figure that there are at least 250 suckers in the world.

    If this car was priced right I would be on board.

    John Cooper is rolling in his grave.

    With the GP you had something different then the production MINI’s. The trick does not work this time as the car is does not has the exclusivity as the GP. You will be better off buying a fully spec JCW

    LOL is all that comes to mind!

    Questions about the suspension … It’s a factory JCW MINI which means it has the standard MCS suspension.

    More photos to follow in the morning.

    Can the $100,000 factory MINI be far behind?
