The MINI John Cooper Works Bulldog Racing Edition pays homage to the team’s notable 24-hour race achievement.
This special edition boasts a 231 hp engine, KW V3 suspension, OZ HyperGT wheels, and Remus sports exhaust.
Each Bulldog Racing Edition is uniquely tailored to customer preferences, delivering an authentic “racing feeling” for daily driving.
Bulldog Racing, a distinguished private racing team headquartered in Nürburg, introduces the remarkable Bulldog Racing Edition for the MINI Cooper John Cooper Works. This special edition stands as a tribute to the team’s exceptional feat of achieving the highest-ever finish for a MINI in a 24-hour race, a momentous accomplishment in the brand’s 64-year history.
Crafted with meticulous attention, each Bulldog Racing Edition model is personalized according to individual customer specifications. Built on the foundation of a MINI John Cooper Works, featuring a 6-speed manual transmission, this edition showcases a robust power output of 231 horsepower (170 kW) and an impressive maximum torque of 320 Nm. At the heart of its performance capabilities lies the KW V3 suspension, known for its adjustable compression and rebound damping. This finely tuned suspension system not only enhances traction but also refines turn-in dynamics and maintains safety under challenging conditions.
Externally, the special edition presents 17-inch OZ HyperGT alloy wheels, in conjunction with the Remus sports exhaust, establishing a distinctive and unmistakable appearance. Pirelli contributes to the performance aspect with its P Zero Performance tires, sized at 205/45R17. The performance-focused approach extends to the interior as well, with the Stern Performance Parts Clubsport set replacing the rear seat with a strategically designed strut. This modification reduces overall weight, consequently amplifying the vehicle’s performance metrics.
A standout visual element is the prominent Bulldog Racing roof decor foil, a characteristic feature adorning all race cars affiliated with the team. Internally, each Bulldog Racing Edition is marked with a distinct badge, designating it as a numbered limited edition. This badge also commemorates the precise day on which the suspension tuning was executed on the Nordschleife circuit.
Alexander Schabbach, Bulldog Racing’s Managing Director, emphasizes the personalized nature of each creation, stating, “Every vehicle is customized to meet the exact preferences of our customers, ensuring its uniqueness.” This special edition epitomizes Bulldog Racing’s capabilities in vehicular modification, extending this service to individuals with MINI models from 2014 onwards.
