Mini has revealed the John Cooper Works Anniversary Edition to commemorate 60 years of collaboration with the Cooper family.
A total of 740 examples of the three-door hot hatch will be built, just 60 of which are bound for the UK.
Retaining the regular JCW's 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine, it produces 228bhp and 236lb ft of torque and covers the 0-62mph sprint in 6.3sec on its way to a top speed of 153mph.
The Anniversary Edition comes with a number of bespoke touches, including Rebel Green paint; a roof, door handles, mirror caps, headlight rings finished in white; and white bonnet stripes with red accent lines. It also carries the number 74 on its doors and bonnet as a nod to the Mini Cooper taking its first class win in the 1961 Lombank Trophy at Snetterton.
The original Mini later triumphed at the Monte Carlo Rally in 1965, 1965 and 1967.
The JCW Anniversary Edition runs on 18in alloy wheels with run-flat tyres.
Its waistline is finished in Piano Black, as is its interior. Dinamica upholsters the seats and the dashboard features the signatures of three generations of the Cooper family: John Cooper, his son John Jr and his grandson Charlie.
The announcement of the special edition car comes on what would’ve been John Cooper Sr's 98th birthday.
Other touches include darkened rear glass and the original Cooper Car Company logo on the door sill trims, side scuttles, C-pillars and steering wheel. A handwritten plaque notes each car’s individual number of the 740-strong run, accompanied by the phrase ‘60 Years of Mini Cooper - The Unexpected Underdog’.
