Mini is celebrating their Dakar Rally victory by introducing the 2013 John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 Dakar Special Edition. Funny or not, this is one of the longest special edition names in automotive history.

On the outside, the limited edition is coming with black bodywork and green racing stripes. There is also the "Mini ALL4 Racing" lettering and the Dakar logos. Inside the cabin, the same black and green theme was adopted by the designers. Because we are talking about a special edition, all units that will be made will feature an individually- numbered plaque. 

Under the hood we will find the same turbocharged 1.6 liter engine that can output 218 HP and 280 Nm peek of torque. The engine resources are put to the ground thanks to an ALL4 all-wheel drive system that enables the British model to sprint from stand still to 100 km/h in 7 seconds. 

The 2013 Mini John Cooper Works ALL4 Dakar Special Edition will be sold only in France and the production will be limited to 11 units as a tribute to Stephane Peterhansel’s eleven Dakar Rally wins.
