WHATCAR? Reviews The 2013 MINI John Cooper Works GP II

United Kingdom's WHATCAR? reviews the 2013 MINI John Cooper Works GP II.  This is how it answers the question "Should I buy one?":
The GP is an absolute hoot to drive on track, feeling significantly more special than the next-fastest model in the range, the JCW.

True, it costs the best part of £30k, but it comes well equipped and its limited numbers mean it should hold its value well.

Fantastic hot hatches such as the similarly priced BMW M135i and cheaper Renault Megane Cup are more sensible choices, but the GP definitely has its own appeal.

Because we've only driven the Mini John Cooper Works GP on a track, we can't give it a What Car? star rating at present.
