Racing's in our DNA.
John Cooper Works has a history steeped in the domitable MINI spirit and cult rally success. Pioneering Formula-One car builder, John Cooper, saw huge racing potential in the classic Mini with its revolutionary tranverse engine. Just two years after it was introduced, he constructed a racing-class version with a bigger, 55hp (41kw) engine. Soon Mini was taking the motorsport scene by storm and streaking to victory in many international events.
The Making of a Legend.
After enjoying considerable success with his own car constructions, John Cooper became fascinated with the newly introduced classis Mini. Intrigued by its potential, he envisioned turing it into a champion racer. With the addition of a more powerful engine, twin carburettors, new brakes, sharper steering and an agile, go-kart-like chassis, he had soon transformed this modest little family car into a giant-slaying racing car. In 1961, the first Mini Cooper was born.
