MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition Celebrates The Manual Transmission

If you’re a fan of the 6-speed manual, the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition is for you.

The MINI John Cooper Works models have always been known for their exceptional performance and the exhilarating go-kart feeling they provide. Celebrating this is the limited-edition MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition, which puts a greater emphasis on an unfiltered and authentic driving experience.

Unfiltered Driving Experience

At the heart of the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition lies a manual 6-speed transmission, making it a standout high-performance model. The inclusion of a mechanical manual transmission, coupled with stainless-steel pedals, emphasizes the dynamic response of the drive, bringing forth an exciting race-like sensation.


This unfiltered and authentic driving experience with a 6-speed manual transmission serves as the inspiration behind the edition’s name.

Distinctive Design Details

From the moment you lay eyes on the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition, its individual style and exceptional performance become evident. The front end showcases a radiator grille with large air inlets, designed to optimize engine and brake temperature control, all surrounded by a sleek Piano Black finish. Combined with the elegant Midnight Black body color, these black design details contribute to the vehicle’s untamed appearance. The Piano Black elements extend to the brand’s iconic side scuttles and waistline finisher.

From the aerodynamic rear spoiler to the rear apron, the edition-specific, center-running Bonnet Stripe with unique graphics pays homage to MINI’s rich motorsport history. The MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition epitomizes the vehicle’s irrepressible desire for freedom, whether on the racetrack or in everyday life.

The limited-edition character is marked by a silver, white, and red edition logo, featured on the exterior through badges on the C-pillar and rear of the vehicle, as well as embedded in the side scuttles. Completing the exceptional look are the 18-inch Circuit Spoke rims in Jet Black.

Exclusive Interior

Stepping inside the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition reveals an interior that exudes exclusivity and style. The door sills boast an edition-specific 1to6 logo-design, instantly highlighting the vehicle’s unique character. The passenger side features a 3D-embossed decorative surface that subtly incorporates the edition logo in a tone-on-tone design. On the left side of the steering wheel, black lettering proudly states “One of 999,” underscoring the edition’s strict limited availability. The gear shift, located in the middle of the cockpit, showcases the edition logo colors with a red background graphic and red leather stitching.

True to the MINI brand’s iconic central instrument, the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition incorporates a glowing red bezel, creating a striking contrast with the anthracite-colored headliner. The nappa leather sports steering wheel’s lower spoke and the floor mats bear the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition emblem, adding another touch of distinction. Additionally, the edition is complete with specific key caps featuring the 1to6 logo-design.
