MINI has announced that its latest John Cooper Works (JCW) model will make its debut at the iconic 24 Hours of Nürburgring and not simply as a show car. This grueling endurance race, known for its demanding nature, will see the new model take on the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife track from June 1-2.

The petrol-powered MINI JCW, sporting a bespoke camouflage created by the MINI Design Team, pays tribute to the classic red and white color schemes of 1960s Minis. This nod to MINI’s heritage is a testament to the brand’s commitment to blending tradition with modern innovation.

Set for its world premiere in the fall of 2024, the New MINI JCW represents a significant milestone. The racecar will feature a distinctive “37” logo, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Mini Cooper S’s victory at the 1964 Rallye Monte Carlo, celebrating MINI’s storied motorsport legacy.

The New MINI JCW #317, entered by the private racing team Bulldog Racing from Nürburg, will compete in the SP 3T category. Dubbed the “MINI John Cooper Works PRO,” this Twin-Power Turbo racecar epitomizes the fusion of MINI’s iconic design and Bulldog Racing’s expertise.

Additionally, the beloved black MINI JCW #474, equipped with a manual transmission, will also compete. This car, which secured a podium finish at last year’s event in the VT-2 category, has proven its endurance racing capabilities.

For its commercial offering, the lineup will include both petrol and all-electric versions, with price and availability yet to be announced at the time of writing.
