Mini Cooper World Championship 50: Specs and Price

Since BMW took over the Mini brand its success has gone from strength-to-strength — with a little help from John Cooper of course. The two companies always come together to give us a range of special edition Mini’s, such as the upcoming World Championship 50 (JCW WC50).

Engadget has learned from MotoringFile that BMW and Cooper will release 250 of these limited edition models, 50 of which will be offered to the to the U.S. market — but they will come with a huge price tag.

The World Championship 50 will come with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, producing 208 horsepower and enough brake force to stop a 747 — that is a lot of power for such a light car. The car will also come with upgrades to the suspension and a number of other Copper upgrades.

The total price including shipping will be $40,300.
