It’s the next chapter of the MINI Electric journey – this September we’ll be revealing the MINI ELECTRIC CONCEPT. We’re going electric. But we’re not changing. We’re keeping everything you know and love about MINI – from legendary go-kart handling to iconic design – and we’re adding electricity.
Around 50 years ago the course of history was changed forever. Mini suddenly burst onto the motorsport rally scene annihilating the much bigger and established competition – much to their shock. Legendary racing car pioneer, John Cooper had taken his hand to the iconic little car and transformed it into a champion. It was the beginning of a highly successful partnership between Mini and John Cooper. One whose legacy lives on to this day in MINI John Cooper Works.
John Cooper Works is all about extreme driving and fun at the highest level of precision. But the highest performance demands tight control and stability, especially when you’re driving through bends at higher speeds. So we specially designed the 18” and 19” light alloy wheels to accommodate high-performance brakes. In bold Chili Red with a John Cooper Works badge, the 4-piston, fixed-caliper brakes provide you with all the stopping power you need for tight turns and fast changes of pace.
Here's what happens when we apply our unrestrained imagination, pioneering spirit and motor racing genes to create the high-performance sports car of tomorrow. It's John Cooper Works dialled right up to the max.
