Munich. The performance-enhanced MINI John Cooper
Works models have always been the brand’s top athletes and maximize
that brand-typical go-kart feeling. The MINI John Cooper Works 1to6
Edition (combined fuel consumption: 7.1 — 6.8 l/100 km; combined CO2
emissions: 162 — 156 g/km in accordance with WLTP), limited to 999
units worldwide, accentuates the powerful sportiness of the drivetrain
in a particularly authentic way.
“The MINI John Cooper Works models have their roots in motorsport.
With the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition, we are celebrating
MINI’s legendary motorsport history and maximizing the brand-typical
driving experience,” says Stefanie Wurst, Head of MINI.
The manual 6-speed transmission makes the MINI John Cooper Works a
special high-performance model. Together with the standard
stainless-steel pedals, the mechanical manual transmission underlines
the dynamic response of the drive and stands for the exciting race
feeling of the MINI John Cooper Works. The focus on this unfiltered
and authentic driving experience with a 6-speed manual transmission
gives the 1to6 Edition its name.
Limited edition with puristic design details.
Even from the outside, the MINI John Cooper Works in the 1to6 Edition
signals individual style and exceptional performance. The front end is
characterized by the radiator grille with the tried and tested large
air inlets for optimal temperature control of the engine and brakes
and a surrounding completely in Piano Black. In combination with the
elegant Midnight Black body color, the elegant black design details
give the vehicle an untamed appearance. The brand-typical side
scuttles as well as the waistline finisher are also designed in Piano Black.
From the bonnet to the aerodynamic rear spoiler and the rear apron,
the edition-specific, center-running Bonnet Stripe with
edition-specific graphics underlines MINI’s motorsport history. The
MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition embodies the vehicle’s
irrepressible desire for freedom — on the racetrack or in everyday
life. The edition logo in silver, white and red marks the
limited-edition character on the exterior with corresponding badges on
the C-pillar and the rear of the vehicle and is also embedded in the
side scuttles. 18-inch Circuit Spoke rims in Jet Black complete the
exceptional look of the edition model.
The door sills with an edition-specific 1to6 logo-design highlight
the exclusive character of the interior as soon as the vehicle doors
are opened. The 3D-embossed decorative surface on the passenger side
echoes the edition logo in a subtle tone-on-tone design, while the
black lettering “One of 999” on the left of the steering wheel refers
to the strict limited edition of the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6
Edition. The gear shift is located in the middle of the cockpit,
featured in the colors of the edition logo with a red background
graphic and red leather stitching.
The typical MINI central instrument picks up on the design with the
glowing red bezel and, together with the red ambient lighting, creates
an atmospheric contrast with the anthracite-colored headliner. The
lower spoke of the nappa leather sports steering wheel and the floor
mats once again feature the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition
emblem. The edition is rounded off by specific key caps in the 1to6 logo-design.
World premiere at the 24-hour race at the
The dynamic appearance, the deep engine sound and the four-cylinder
twinpower turbo unit are just a few of the motorsport-inspired details
of the MINI John Cooper Works. They show that everything is about
sporty driving and maximum precision. The model’s sports suspension
was tested on various racetracks, including, of course, the
Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. The MINI John Cooper Works 1to6
Edition also stands for legendary go-kart feeling and perfect handling
and continues, with its impressive driving characteristics, the legacy
of racing legend John Cooper.
Against this background, the world premiere of the limited-edition
model will take place at the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring on May
20, 2023. A MINI John Cooper Works of the 1to6 Edition, specially
modified for this race, will together with the MINI John Cooper Works
of the Bulldog Racing Team, familiar from last year, continue MINI’s
tradition-steeped racing history at the race on Saturday.
September 2023, the exclusive MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition
model will be available in Europe, the USA, Canada and Mexico.
