MINI is marking 60 years of collaboration with the Cooper Family with a special edition of the MINI 3-door that combines a return to history with state-of-the-art technology.

The MINI Anniversary Edition will be available as MINI Cooper 3-door, MINI Cooper S 3-door, and MINI John Cooper Works. Global production is limited to just 740 units, a reference to the number '74', which the classic Mini Cooper wore on its first successful race track appearance.

The special edition cars will get the number 74 on their bonnet and doors, reminiscent of the classic cooper when it won its first class on the racetrack
The MINI Anniversary Editions are offered in either British Racing Green metallic or Midnight Black. However, MINI John Cooper Works versions will also be offered with a Rebel Green body colour.

All paint finishes are combined with a roof, exterior mirror caps, door handles and surrounds for the head lights and rear lights in white, while other exterior trim elements are offered in Piano Black high gloss, a nod to the recognisable green paintwork and white accents of the early racing cars designed by John Cooper.

The special edition cars will also get white bonnet stripes and a red accent line on the exterior. The 'Cooper' name logo can also be found on the door sill trims, on the side scuttles, on the C-pillars and on the centre spoke of the Nappa sports leather steering wheel.

The interior of the MINI Anniversary Edition is dressed with the signatures of John, Mike and Charlie Cooper
They will also get suspension with frequency-selective damping supplemented by 18-inch John Cooper Works light-alloy wheels.

In the cabin, the cars will feature John Cooper Works sports seats in Dinamica/leather Carbon Black finish, an anthracite-coloured headliner, stainless steel pedal set and interior trim in Piano Black high-gloss.

A red ring from the original John Cooper logo adorns the luggage compartment lid and the interior surface on the passenger side. On the driver's side meanwhile, the interior surface features the signatures of John, Mike and Charlie Cooper.

The special edition cars also get an emblem on the inside of the driver’s door frame sporting John Cooper's signature and a handwritten note, stating, '1 of 740' and the words '60 years of MINI Cooper - The unexpected underdog'.
