According to internet reports, BMW's Mini brand plans to launch a new Special Edition Cooper F1 Edition To Appear At MINI United.
According to MotoringFile, Mini is preparing to launch a special edition F1 Cooper at the event.
To appear in non-metallic British Racing Green, the MINI would coincide with the creation of John Cooper’s first ever Formula 1 car.
It’s not just a coat of paint either, with black racing stripes, a white roof and mirrors, a JCW aero-kit, and a host of special F1 badges added to complete the look.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on any mechanical revisions, so expect the same engine as seen in the JCW Mini Cooper S.
Still, with over 150kW (200hp) and 264Nm (192lb-ft) of torque, the MINI isn’t exactly a slouch. Just don’t go taking those badges too seriously.
Unfortunately, only 50 to 100 units of the F1 Edition MINI are expected to be produced, so don’t expect to see it ‘downunder’.
