This car has been stored in a garage it’s whole life, has never been raced, or been in an accident so it’s still in perfect condition. Many GP parts, and so many other modifications that meet or exceed OEM build quality. This is one of the last supercharged cars built by John Cooper Works in June 2006 before the UK based garage closed the following month. I originally purchased it new for $40K and installed $15+K worth of parts (my labor was free) over the next 2 years. I have a 2” thick stack of receipts available for review. The car weighs 2,490 (W/O gas) and makes 224 WHP after being dyno tuned by RMW. Selling my baby for $19,500 to make room for new projects.

Please call, email, or text for more info since I’m advertising on several different platforms.

I just realized that I forgot to include a couple small details in the original spec sheet:

·        Replaced plastic lenses in gauges with glass
·        Factory applied Undercoating

I also received a request for pictures of the motor, suspension, and underside of the car so more pictures have been added to the Google Photos album.
