This one's a bit special, a road-going evolution of the Cooper S Challenge race cars. Or, as the cynical might say, merely a PR stunt designed to maintain interest in the current Mini range before new New Mini Mk2 appears this autumn. Called the GP it's one of a limited run of 2000. Just 500 are UK-bound and all are spoken for.
I see you've noticed the unique bits of spoilerage - the carbon fibre monster on the roof is particularly eye catching. Apparently they were actually designed in a wind-tunnel. The 18-inch wheels are new and each of the 2000 cars has its production number stickered on to the top of the roof. Oh, and did we mention that there's no back seat, just a polished brace linking the two rear struts?
