Hofmann’s are delighted to offer this exceptional 2006 Mini John Cooper Works GP 1 for sale, presented in the only paint option of Thunder Blue Metallic over Black Leather Recaro interior with red accent stitching and GP twin spoke alloys. Factory options include Air Conditioning and stereo.
GP0712 has covered just 35295 miles since new and is a 2 private owner car – (the last custodian since January 2011) supplied new by William’s Bolton and is accompanied by a full service history which carried out by BMW Mini in the cars early days, then latterly by CMR Services – BMW Specialists who completed the latest service on 23/08/2021 at 35242 miles.
The last Mk I variant to be produced using the supercharged Tritec engine was the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit, a light-weight, quasi-race-prepped John Cooper Works model. Hand-finished by Bertone in Italy, it was offered as a limited-production run of 2000 cars during the 2006 model year, with 444 of those originally intended for the UK market, although ultimately, 459 were sold. The GP has more bolstered Recaro front seats but had no rear seats, which along with reduced sound-deadening, removal of the rear wash-wipe system, optional air-conditioning and radio, and other weight-reduction steps, resulted in a weight saving of around 40 kg compared to a Cooper S.
Mechanically, it has a less restrictive intercooler, recalibrated engine management, high-volume injector nozzles, and a freer-flowing exhaust system. Extra cooling capabilities let the supercharged engine run longer on cooler temperatures for better track performance, rated at 218 PS (215 bhp; 160 kW) at 7100 rpm and 250 N⋅m (184 lb⋅ft) at 4600 rpm of torque
As with all our vehicles the car will go through a comprehensive presales inspection by one of our Mini experienced technicians.
All vehicles supplied through Hofmann’s have funding options available, are all warranted and part exchanges welcome
