Special Edition Mini Cooper S 5-door commemorates the 1964 Monte Carlo rally champion.


MINI has always been synonymous with an automotive brand that has a unique historical heritage. They also don't hesitate to commemorate their past achievements by presenting special edition models. Lastly, Mini offers a special edition Paddy Hopkirk Edition in Cooper S 3-door, Cooper S 5-doors, and John Cooper Work variants.

But before that, who is Paddy Hopkirk? Patrick "Paddy" Hopkirk is a rally driver from Northern Ireland. When he was 30 years old or in 1964, Hopkirk took part in the legendary Monte Carlo rally race using the Mini Cooper S. He used the starting number 37. Long story short, Hopkirk won the race. His car became the Mini Cooper with the most famous identity to date.

Mini then made a special edition in honor of Hopkirk. First introduced in October 2020, the Mini Hopkirk is now available in Indonesia with one model, the Mini Cooper S 5-doors. So what are the specials?

In terms of engine, it still uses the same engine in the standard Cooper S 5-doors. The 1998 cc four-cylinder engine with Mini TwinPower Turbo Technology can produce up to 192 HP at 5,000 to 6,000 rpm. This engine also delivers a maximum torque of 280 Nm at 1,350 to 4,200 rpm.

Mini noted that this machine could accelerate from 0 to 100 km per hour in 6.8 seconds. The maximum speed that the driver can achieve is 235 km per hour. A special note for a car that is usually used for daily use.

The most special is present in the details surrounding this special edition Mini. The exterior uses the iconic color and style of the Hopkirk rally car, which is red with a red stripe on the hood. These 17 wheels, John Cooper Works in Track Spoke Black design, make the Mini Hopkirk look sportier. Other details are the radiator grille, lower air intake, door handles, fuel filler cap, Mini logo on the front and rear, and around the front and rear lights using a black-gloss finish.

Other exclusive features that set the MINI Paddy Hopkirk Edition apart from the standard MINI Cooper S include the John Cooper Works aerodynamic kit with a rear spoiler. John Cooper Works Dinamica Leather Carbon Black seats, John Cooper Works steering wheel with paddle shifters, and anthracite headliner for a more sporty look.

Number 37, which became Paddy Hopkirk's icon when competing in the Monte Carlo Rally, is also present on the left and right sides. Another detail is the Paddy Hopkirk Monte Carlo writing present on the LED headlights and Union Jack design taillights.

The signature Paddy Hopkirk also appears on the interior trim strip on the passenger side, part of the interior surface in a high-gloss Piano Black color. Another exclusive design feature is the door line with LEDs bearing the name “Paddy Hopkirk.” The MINI Excitement Package and Comfort Access are also included in the MINI Paddy Hopkirk Edition.
