It’s another MINI limited edition model – the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 Dakar – this time to celebrate MINI’s Dakar successes.
But this limited edition – the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 Dakar – really is a limited edition, produced to celebrate MINI’s Dakar triumphs in the last couple of years, as there will be just 11 made.
The JCW Countryman ALL4 Dakar gets features inspired by the Dakar winning MINI of Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret, who managed to take their MINI JCW Countryman to a Dakar win in 2012 and 2013,
The Dakar MINI Countryman gets a ‘rally’ paint job in matt black with bright green design features – inside and out – including stripes with Peterhansel’s signature on the bonnet, stripes down the side with ‘MINI ALL4 Racing’ painted on them, the doors get the number ‘302’ with the names of Peterhansel and Cottret emblazoned on them and the John Cooper Works and Dakar winner’s logo on the back.
Inside, MINI has added green stitching for the gearshift lever and mats, embroidered the Dakar winner’s logo in green on the headrests, stuck green stripes on the centre console and thrown in a special edition logo with serial number above the glovebox. Standard kit includes a JCW steering wheel, black leather sports seats, auxiliary spots, bespoke indicator surrounds and 19″ alloys with Cross-Spoke Crusher design.
MINI hasn’t given us a price for the John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 Dakar (but it won’t be cheap) and it’s unlikely any will arrive in the UK.
