Mini Cooper JCW World Championship 50 – details released

Full details and images have just been released of the special edition Mini Cooper John Cooper Works World Championship 50 (that’s a lot of badging).

The special edition was designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the start of the Mini’s motorsports successes, as well as John Cooper’s victory in the F1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship with Jack Brabham in the driver’s seat. Limited to just 250 examples, the MCJCWWC50 features the standard JCW’s 211-hp turbo four, along with a full slate of celebratory touches inside and out.

Available solely in Connaught Green (a new color for Mini), all examples receive white racing stripes down the hood and roof, a color scheme designed to reflect the livery of the Cooper F1 cars. There are also cross-spoke Challenge alloy wheels finished in black, a stack of carbon-fibre bits (hood scoop, rear diffuser, mirror caps, tailgate handle) and special numbering. The model was designed in conjunction with John Cooper’s son, “John” Michael Cooper, whose signature appears on the hood stripe and naturally on a special dashboard plate.

Inside, there’s carbon black leather with red piping and stitching throughout, along with more carbon fibre bits, an Alcantara steering wheel, and a six-speed manual gearbox.

All-up, it’s a fairly tidy package for collectors and enthusiasts. No word yet on pricing but it won’t be cheap or even reasonable.
