That is the ultimate! I wonder what MSRP was. How awesome would that be to own and drive!

The MINI Challenge Cars recently became available for sale in the US in a fringe of hope of getting the series over to the U.S. (timing is a MFer aint it?). It's a fully prepped, race ready, non-street legal, factory built MINI, built to the same specs as the other Challenge Cars. I think there are about 50 available for the US market. (the guy didn't "import" it as he stated, he ordered one just like we ordered ours). I've seen the actual MSRP speculated from 65-90k. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up!

(Don't you guys read read motoringfile.com?)

Yeah imported, right. Not exclusively by him though.

Anyway, nice piece of gear. Worth the dough if you want something unique and usable.

Wonder what the reserve is on that (not that it matters - wife would beeee pisssssssed if I brought that home).

The only way this would start to make some sense is if there really will be a MINI Challenge series in the USA, which there should be.

I missed the memo that said you could buy or order one of these in the USA. I see motoringfile says so, but...........where are the details? As far as I know, they still cost 42K euros and the exchange rate hasn't gotten any better lately.
