Official: Mini John Cooper Works World Championship 50 Special Edition

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

The wraps around the new Mini John Cooper Works World Championship 50 special edition was removed several weeks ago during the commemoration of its 50th anniversary. The latest JCW model looks back to the accomplishments of the car in the 1959 and 1960 F1 World Championships, and will be sold solely in British Racing Green in keeping with the original racecars.

There will only be 250 copies of this car planned to be produced, making it one of the most exclusive Minis ever.

The new Mini is patterned after the same platform as the current JCW version. Along with the World Championship 50 special edition, two other models were unveiled in Silverstone at the Mini United 2009 celebrations.

The other accompanying models were the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour Cooper S and the Camden and Mayfair editions.

The special edition Mini did not receive any performance revisions, but retained the 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder from the standard JCW model that generates 208hp (155kW) and 192lb-ft (260Nm) of top torque.

Included as standard features of the car are steering wheel with Alcantara trim, hood scoop made of carbon fiber, rear air diffuser, mirror caps and handle for the tailgate, white racing stripes, black and red piping for leather trim, Bluetooth technology, audio system from Harman Kardon, 17 inch alloy wheels and dual-xenon headlights.
