MINI reveals US special editions for LA Motor Show

MINI has announced a variety of special edition models at LA, while also confirming production of the new MINI John Cooper Works GP

MINI will bring four new special editions to the LA Motor Show, based on the Hatch, Countryman and Clubman models. Each will be fitted with a handful of unique accessories, but are only available in the US for the time being.

Available exclusively in Midnight Black, the MINI John Cooper Works Knights Edition will be available with painted mirror caps, side and bonnet decals and the John Cooper Works Exhaust Flap System. It will make its debut at the LA Auto Show, and is due to hit US dealerships in early 2019.

The MINI John Cooper Works International Orange Edition follows a similar brief. Available in US dealerships now the special edition is painted bright orange and fitted with carbon fibre mirror caps, side decals, a valved exhaust and 18-inch wheels.

A new version of the MINI Countryman Cooper S will also be showcased. Called the Countryman Yin Yang Edition, it will be available from next month in the US and follows an amusing black and white colour theme.

Finally, the MINI Clubman Cooper S Starlight Edition will feature on the firm’s stand, sporting 17-inch alloy wheels, painted mirrors, a MINI Luggage trolley and the MINI Click and Drive System; a universal mount for either your smartphone or MINI’s own sat-nav.

MINI has also confirmed that the John Cooper Works GP Concept from the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show will be put into production by 2020.
