MINI of Chicago: The Largest MINI Goodwood Dealer in the World

MotoringFile Sections: MF Advertising Message, R56 (Hatch), Rolls Royce Special Edition Jul 4th, 2012 16 Comments

As a name, MINI Inspired by Goodwood is a mouthful. MINI couldn’t use the term Rolls Royce or even reference the storied brand. So instead they simply referenced the place all Rolls are made – Goodwood England. And it’s a shame because the Goodwood is nothing less than jaw-dropping once you open the door and your senses fully experience the car. The only problem? They’re relatively rare with many dealers not even getting more than one (if any). However MotoringFile sponsors MINI of Chicago not only has one or two but eight of the ultimate MINIs. Currently the dealer has delivered four and have another four in the showroom (all priced only $1,000 over invoice to celebrate the store’s one year anniversary). So with all the opulence just a few miles away from MF HQ, we thought it was worth a trip down the street to go check them out.

Being primarily based in Chicago, MotoringFile has long waited for the day when a MINI dealer would actually be located within city limits. The wait is over. a few weeks MINI of Chicago opened its doors to one of the largest MINI markets in the US. And perhaps fittingly MINI of Chicago is also the largest MINI dealer in the Midwest. So to mark this occasion we at MF wanted to give them a hearty welcome to the only MINI dealer in our own backyard.

Todd’s MINI GP #0083 For Sale

MotoringFile Sections: JCW GP, MF Advertising Message, Podcast, R53 (Coupe) Feb 21st, 2011 Comments Off

This comes to us from White Roof Radio co-host and MotoringFile contributor, Todd Pearson.

In 2006, MINI announced they would be producing a performance-oriented special edition model that would be lighter weight and limited in quantity worldwide. As we all know, that edition was dubbed the MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works GP edition. Two thousand individually numbered GPs were produced with 415 sold in the US. I wasn’t immediately smitten when the GP was announced but the car grew on me so much that I put a deposit down and paid extra to take part in a special delivery of the very first GPs delivered during the first MINI Takes The States. The special delivery took place at Laguna Seca during the kick-off to the Monterey Historics in 2006. Needless to say, as soon as I laid eyes on the Thunder Blue Metallic paint, carbon fiber wing and unique aero kit on the GP, I was in love with this car. continued →
