Unveiling the First F66 MINI Cooper at Plant Oxford

It is a significant milestone in the illustrious history of the MINI brand, with the inauguration of the F66 MINI Cooper production at Plant Oxford. This momentous occasion saw the presence of Stefanie Wurst, Head of MINI, and Charlie Cooper, grandson of the iconic John Cooper, whose legacy has left an indelible mark on the sporty MINI models. In a symbolic gesture, Charlie Cooper drove the first of the new MINI Coopers off the assembly line, echoing the spirit of his legendary grandfather.

The F66 MINI Cooper is a testament to global collaboration. Crafted with components sourced from all three BMW Group UK manufacturing sites, this model showcases the synergy of British craftsmanship and engineering prowess. From body pressings and sub-assemblies in Swindon to cutting-edge engines built in Hams Hall, culminating in assembly at Plant Oxford, the F66 MINI Cooper represents the pinnacle of automotive excellence.

With over 4.4 million MINIs built in Britain, including 150,000 electric models, MINI is steering towards sustainability. Plant Oxford gears up for two new all-electric models by 2026, shifting towards a greener future.

The F66 MINI Cooper packs a punch with its turbocharged engine and seven-speed transmission. With horsepower ranging from 156 to 201 and torque at 221 pound-feet, the 2025 MINI Cooper promises an electrifying ride. Available in vibrant colours like Ocean Wave Green and Sunny Side Yellow, it blends performance and personality.
