**UPDATE**: GP#0083 is no longer owned by Mr. Todd Pearson. the eBay auction was successful and he sold it Sunday night.
2,000 were hand-made in Italy.
412 came to the United States.
32 were delivered at Laguna Seca. Including this one.
That’s right gang, you have read it correctly. Todd is selling his first GP, 0083. You can get the full skinny about the sale over at this ebay auction.
>As many know, I was so in love with the GP that a couple years later I bought a second one when it showed up at my local dealer. The car is that great. After almost a year with two GPs, I’ve made the tough decision to sell that first GP. You read that correctly. At the risk of sounding self-serving, I’m writing about it here because it’s a rare car with a great history and, while a GP shows up for sale now and then, it’s nice to be able to let the MINI enthusiast community know about a great car like this when it becomes available
We talk about this on tonights show. As you would expect, it’s in showroom condition, both in visual appearance and operation. Actually, better than showroom since Todd has added a few JCW bits to the interior that are staying with the MINI. Not to mention it’s been signed by Mike Cooper.
All that plus. This is the MINI that helped put White Roof Radio on the map. MTTS was created for **this** MINI and it was our first time covering a live event from start to finish. And it got everyone’s attention.
This MINI has been to the Dragon, numerous club events, talked about endless on the show and served as Todd’s good weather daily driver since 2006.
Todd really wants this one to go to a good home, which is why you are reading about here, on Motoringfile and on his Facebook page. The auction closes Sunday.
Go on, get yourself a piece of history!
