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.
In a surprise find, one of the very first MINIs ever made was recently discovered in a barn in the Netherlands. Thanks to the MINI ReBorn project, this historical treasure was loving restored to its former glory with the help of an expert team and the MINI community. You can read all about its amazing resurrection story here.
Harness the extra power. Savour the superb control and stability. Unleash the racing spirit in you. John Cooper trusted his instincts. In the early 60s, against all odds but with an unstoppable, pioneering spirit, he managed to build his legendary racing car from a tiny family car – and changed the minds of many. Once you’ve sat in the cockpit and driven a track-inspired MINI John Cooper Works, the bends in the road will never seem the same again.
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.
