John Cooper was a young man when his love for racing first became apparent. In 1946, Cooper and his father started the Cooper Car Company where they specialized in modifying rally cars. Inspired by this, John Cooper would take his racing insights and apply it to the Mini Classic. He saw the potential of a racing machine in the original design. Cooper installed a more stable chassis that could withstand the rigors of high speed racing and also added an improved engine. Mini re-branded to MINI in 2001 and made it a focus to continue to use the performance and design innovations that Cooper had fostered. Birthed from this, in 2003 the John Cooper Works tuning kits were introduced, bringing the classic racing-style to the modern MINI.
John Cooper Works is the sporting MINI, both inside and out. The car is designed with aerodynamics in mind. Its front bumper is wide and low with large air intakes that give it both a racing look and help moderate temperature at high speeds. A rear spoiler provides a sporty look along with its decibel-pounding power.
Low profile seats are set deep down in the car and are fitted with durable lateral supports. The headrests are molded in a racing style to keep you secure in your seat through tight turns. Dinamica Leather upholstery covers the seats, lending a prestigious look to the inside.

Its Rebel Green colour is an exclusive option to the John Cooper Works models, representing its rich motorsport history. Exclusive detailing covers the car, featuring signature design elements across the vehicle. It features Chili Red stitching on the leather steering wheel and traditional badging on the door sills. Every inch of the car is finely tuned and crafted with high quality design in mind.
The sport suspension was developed and tested on the Nürburgring Nordschleife racetrack. It provides for tight handling and quick responsiveness. The premium brakes boast a 4-piston fixed caliper design. When paired with its light alloy wheels, the vehicle allows for fast-acting stopping ability from a variety of speeds.

Every John Cooper Works model is tuned for racing ability. It can hit a top speed of 246 km/h with 228 horsepower and 258 ft/lb of torque power. Its twin power turbo is primed to propel you around the track. The sport mode is ready and waiting for you to switch your John Cooper Works model from a street vehicle into a racing beast. Just by toggling the dial it gives you more powerful acceleration, reactive steering and a different sounding exhaust.
