Charlie Cooper follows in his grandfather’s footsteps and becomes a race driver.
John Cooper’s ground-breaking Mini Cooper in ’61 paved the way for the racing machines we know as MINI John Cooper Works. Times have changed since the first Mini Cooper was built, but John Cooper’s grandson, Charlie Cooper shows us that some things stay the same. Charlie shows off his driving abilities at the MINI Challenge in the UK and Italy. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Charlie proves that racing is still very much ingrained in the Cooper family's DNA.
Powerful presence. Commanding performance.
The tyres grip the surface. They screech as you devour the corners. You feel every twist and swerve you make. Your heart jumps with excitement. But you're more than capable of handling it. It's the drive of a lifetime. You go round for more. And more.
Headstrong and competitive, performance is everything. It might have been built for the road – but it was born for the track. It gives you power, precision and stability, especially on the bends. MINI John Cooper Works makes driving thrilling again.
MINI THRILL MAXIMISED.
