Is the Mini John Cooper Works GP a future classic car?

I am looking for a car that will be used as a toy in the summer only and I want to keep it for a long time. I have an eye on the 2020 Mini John Cooper Works in its GP version. I wonder if it will be a future classic car. What do you think?


Hello Pierre,

Hardly able to be more radical, the 2020 Mini John Cooper Works GP is a car without compromise. The proof? We even removed his back seat!

With the 301 horsepower and 331 pound-feet it develops, it’s the most powerful three-door Mini produced to date. When it comes to driving pleasure, we have no doubt that you will experience it.

On the other hand, as regards the “collection” part of the car, it is difficult to say with certainty. That said, some indicators don’t lie. The 2020 Mini John Cooper Works GP is only produced in 3000 units. This is a much more limited distribution than most of the cars around us on the road. However, it should be noted that Mini also produced a GP version of its John Cooper Works in 2006 and 2013. For these two vintages, only 2000 units were respectively assembled. In doing so, the 2020 model year is less rare.

For reference, a 2006 Mini John Cooper Works GP sold for US $ 35,000 (CAN $ 46,172) on the online auction site Bring a Trailer. On this same site, the selling price of the John Cooper Works GP 2013 oscillates between 15,000 and 32,500 $ US (19,788 and 42,874 $ CAN). The main factors that affect the value are the mileage driven and the general condition of the car.
