MINIs On The Dragon is an annual MINI event at Tail Of The Dragon, a beautiful road in South East USA with a famous “318 curves in 11 miles”. MINI attendance is huge, and this years event brought a number of 2013 and 2006 GPs together. These pictures are kindly from Henry, owner of 2006 GP0280.
An interesting comparison to the 2006 GP, here is the 2013 USA GP specification (click for bigger):
It’s quite strange how the vehicle has been priced, since the $30,100 “base price” has no relation to the MINI Cooper S that it should arguably be based on.
Many thanks, JJ (GP0181)
The 2013 GPs are being delivered to their owners, and are (unlike the rest of the world) being delivered with roof numbers similar to the original 2006 GPs. These are the first pictures I’ve received, from Azem in New Jersey:
