Seriously, MINI John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 Dakar Winner 2013 is the actual name of MINI’s limited edition JCW Countryman that celebrates Stéphane Peterhansel’s 2013 Dakar Rally victory.
Sadly, this special vehicle doesn’t share the same BMW-derived 235 kW (315 hp) 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel inline-six as its motorsport counterpart, relying instead on the regular road car’s 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which produces 160 kW (218 hp) and 280 Nm of torque, allowing a 7.1 second 0–100 km/h time and 225 km/h (140 mph) top speed.
Defining features include matte black paintwork with bright green stripes across the hood, roof, tailgate and sides, auxiliary spotlights, 19-inch Cross-Spoke Crusher light-alloy wheels, Peterhansel’s signature on the hood, along with his car number on the doors.
Moving inside, the Gravity Black leather sports seats, John Cooper Works sports steering wheel, gearshift gaitor, floor mats and head rest logo are stitched in bright green thread, while the trim strip above the glove compartment bears its own serial number.
Just eleven example will be sold.
