    As usual lots of speculation and rumours on what the car will end up being.

    But great that it’s finally been made official, didn’t doubt they’d do one, the question now is will it live up to expectations.

    As folks have said... nice that it's been made official. Still stuck in the waiting game though.

    We knew it was coming I think ... it was just in what guise. Oh well gives me a chance to starting thinking about if I need one or not lol

    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.

    I’ll not be shocked if it is an auto.
    American sales of manuals has dropped through the floor and AUDI has said that’s its last manual shift cars for sale will end with the 2019 models. Others will undoubtedly follow.
    More and more countries are ditching them as people are becoming more “lazy” when it comes to the vastly complicated process of pressing a clutch to change gear.
    They accounted for only 6.8% of sales in 2012 but that is expected to be as low as 3.5% by the end of this year. What with China also not selling many manuals I can see that MINI will pander to the biggest markets to get they sales they so desire.
    The GP seems to have moved from the original idea of an L.E. track styley car built and designed with passion and emotion to just a huge marketing exercise to make the most amount of profit.
    It’ll sell well, I’ve no doubts, and I for one will not be surprised if the GP4 doesn’t not appear eventually as a “press and go” fully electric beasty.
    Ultimately there’s no point in me even thinking about one until at least 2027 when they have dropped in price down to the £18-20K bracket.

    May be I could treat myself to one for my 60th...

    If it looks like this and not watered down then they can take my money.

    There’s no way the finished article will look like that.
    I’d guess that it’ll be halfway between the concept and a bog standard F56.

    Totally agree - and I would argue that this has already happened to JCW itself, and ///M - makes me a bit sad, but that's the way of the world and I can't change it


    Feet were made to fit car pedals. If we were meant to walk, we'd have pogo sticks for legs
