The MINI John Cooper Works has evolved from a collaboration aimed at transforming the humble MINI into a racing champion. Designed for drivers seeking top-tier performance engineering and styling, it embraces the core of driving excitement: the manual transmission. Introducing the new MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition, MINI pays homage to its legendary motorsport heritage while delivering an unparalleled driving experience.

Head of MINI, Stefanie Wurst, states, “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”.

The 1to6 Edition comes exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission and stainless-steel pedals, which inspired its name. This configuration provides drivers with an authentic and unadulterated driving experience. Powered by a John Cooper Works 4-cylinder petrol engine equipped with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology, producing 231 horsepower, this limited-run model accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in a mere 6.3 seconds.

Presented in Midnight Black Metallic paint, the 1to6 Edition features additional aesthetic enhancements, including Piano Black exterior trim, Jet Black 18" Circuit Spoke alloy wheels, and Darkened Rear Glass. An exclusive center-running Bonnet Stripe, adorned with a repeated manual transmission graphic, stretches the length of the vehicle. The exterior design is further accentuated by bespoke 1to6 Edition badging on the C-pillar, side scuttles, and rear of the vehicle.

Inside the cabin, the distinctive emblem graces the door sills, floor mats, and lower spoke of the Nappa leather sports steering wheel. A subtle, tone-on-tone 3D embossed variant of the emblem adorns the passenger side trim. The exclusivity of the model is highlighted by "One of 999" lettering, also embossed, positioned to the left of the steering wheel and printed on the Panoramic Sunroof.
