It's the next chapter of 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.
2015 winner, Nasser Al-Attiyah, was once again a force to be reckoned with in the gruelling cross-country race. Finishing 2nd overall and winning in the four-wheel drive category, he was closely followed by the other three MINI ALL4 teams, who all earned places in the top 10. The Finn, Mikko Hirvonen finished an impressive fourth overall and claimed the award for Best Rookie.
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.
