MINI Announces New John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition
In celebration of 60 years of collaboration with the Cooper Family, MINI today announces the John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition – on what would have been John Cooper’s 98th birthday.
With his innovative and bold engineering concepts, John Cooper recognised the sporting potential of the Mini.
He instigated the construction of a small series of vehicles with larger brakes and an increased engine output from 34 to 55hp.
The more powerful Mini Cooper S followed two years later, which laid the foundations for three overall victories at the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965 and 1967.
With only 60 models destined for the UK, the MINI John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition will be limited to 740 cars globally.
The MINI John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition is offered in the UK exclusively on the MINI 3-Door Hatch John Cooper Works, the model’s most powerful iteration.
The new John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition is finished in Rebel Green with a contrasting white roof, door handles, mirror caps, headlight rings and bonnet stripes with a red accent line.
Other exterior features on the car include 18-inch John Cooper Works Course Spoke run-flat wheels and darkened rear glass.
The classic Cooper Company logo can be found on the door sill trims, side scuttles, C pillars and on the centre spoke of the sports leather steering wheel.
The interior of the model is Piano Black with Dinamica upholstery and the dashboard has a special touch with signatures from three generations of the Cooper family.
The most exclusive feature of the model can be found inside the driver’s door frame and is an emblem with John Cooper’s signature and a handwritten note of “1 of 740”, and the words “60 YEARS OF MINI COOPER – THE UNEXPECTED UNDERDOG”.
The new John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition comes with Navigation Plus Pack, which includes an 8.8-inch display, Apple Car Play, Head-Up Display, wireless charging and Digital Dashboard, and Comfort Plus Pack as standard.
The Comfort Plus Pack includes automatic air conditioning, seat heating, comfort access, rear review camera, park assistant and front park distance control (PDC).
The model also includes Bluetooth hands-free, intelligent emergency calling (E-Call), Connected Drive Services and MINI Connected.
