Get your wallets ready, folks. The 2013 Mini John Cooper Works GP arrives this fall, and we've now learned that the cost of entry for the potent little hatchback is $39,950, (*) including $700 for destination.
For the past six years, members of the Autoblog team have been dreaming of a return of the Mini John Cooper Works GP kit. We fell head-over-heels in love with the two-seat hot hatch when it launched in limited production in 2006, and we're happy to say that our little baby is back. Feast your eyes on the 2013 Mini JCW GP, which makes its first public debut here at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
Our hot hatch dreams have come true. Mini will officially unveil the 2013 John Cooper Works GP hardtop at the 2012 Paris Motor Show later this month, and the automaker has released the official specs – as well as a brace of new images – revealing that earlier speculation was indeed fact.
Mini officially unveiled the John Cooper Works GP back in May, but it has yet to release any official specs or details about its limited-production hot hatch. Fortunately, the folks over at MotoringFile.com have apparently stumbled upon some leaked spec sheets for the European version of the car. (Official U.S. specs and features are reportedly set to be released later this month).
