How do you put a price on fun? It's not always an easy question to answer and we've driven several supercars that aren't any more smile-inducing than a hotted-up shopping hatch. Manufacturers spend millions on developing hugely competent machines that just seem to lack the grin factor. One way to virtually guarantee yourself a smile broad enough to post a wok into is to search out a used MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works edition or, to save mileage on my keyboard, the JCW. With a punchy 1.6-litre turbo engine, livewire steering and a chassis that really puts you in control, this is a car that knows how to show you a good time. Here's how to find one that still has a lot of entertaining left in it.
The MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works makes an extremely desirable used purchase and prices reflect this fact. Whereas a 2008 Volkswagen Golf GTI is now be worth somewhere in the region of £8,000, the JCW has held onto its value far more tenaciously. Why? It's a more covetable purchase and demand is strong. What price fun? We think that question has been answered quite succinctly.
Borrowing £7,500 on a Hire Purchase agreement over 48 months, a representative APR of 18.5% and a deposit of £0.00,
the amount repayable would be £216.89 a month, with a total cost of credit of £2,910.72 and a total amount
payable of £10,410.72.
