The CR-V has proved practical and comfy this month, but it's still not that exciting
Fastest ever MINI for Pebble Beach winner
The official Pebble Beach Raffle will offer the one-of-2,000 MINI as part of the competition that runs during the world famous Concours d’Elegance.
Indeed, the prize winner will become the very first JCW GP owner in the world!
Given the desirability of the prize, tickets seem a snip at $100. They’ll only be sold this weekend, with the winner due to be announced on Sunday night.
All proceeds from the raffle will go to Animal Friends Rescue Project and Natividad Medical Foundation.
“Only 2,000 of these vehicles will be built, so the winner will be taking ownership of an immediate collectible,” said Jim McDowell, Vice President MINI USA.
“The MINI John Cooper Works GP is a great fit as the raffle prize for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance; both are a celebration of speed, style and automobile heritage.”
And how the winner will be celebrating: their prize-winning MINI JCW GP collection prize will include a tour of MINI Oxford, a round-trip airfare for two people from any big US city and two night’s hotel accommodation in Oxford.
How we wish we were there with our £63 at the ready…
