    Why are Mini Coopers so expensive?

    i have a track friend that has a 13 miniGP. it is one step up from the JCW. it is amazing on the track. i drove it for two laps, told him to turn off the nannys and the car just rocks.. but as good as it is. it is only if you buy it used. the prices are stupid. beers
