A Tradition of Performance - John Cooper Works MINI Models

A history of innovation starting with a simple idea, has all helped lead to the John Cooper Works MINI model series. MINI all started with a seemingly simple, yet ambitious idea: design and build a small, affordable, fuel-efficient car with seating for four adults. In 1959, the Classic Mini burst onto the automotive scene. Sporting a mix of efficiency, balance, and thrifty handling, the Classic Mini not only survived, but thrived. The Classic Mini went on to win Monte Carlo four years straight.

Simple Idea, Big History - The Rise of MINI

Fast forward to 1961. John Cooper steps into the limelight with a handful of bold ideas. He decides a more powerful engine, bigger brakes, and a several other tuning changes need to be made. The result: a brawny speed-demon, the Classic Mini Cooper 997. Today, the John Cooper heritage lives on in our John Cooper Works models. Inspired by John Cooper's innovation, the John Cooper Works models reflect the same focus on power, performance, and signature design that inspired John Cooper to create the Classic Mini Cooper 997.

John Cooper Works Line-Up

Whereas the Classic Mini Cooper 997 was a race-focused speedster, todays lineup of John Cooper Works vehicles comes in an assortment of styles and body types. Two things remain consistent across the line-up, though. Power and Performance.
