The Mini John Cooper Works 1to6 Special Edition is now off the wraps. It is based on the three-door John Cooper Works hatchback and comes in only one exterior colour option - Midnight Black. As the name suggests, the 1to6 Special Edition is available with a 6-speed manual transmission that makes it a high-performance model. In addition, this could also be the last model from the House of Mini to feature a manual gearbox, if we go by some market reports. However, there has been no official announcement regarding the same. In 2021, Mini brought back the option of a manual transmission, which was offered across all the models. According to the manufacturer, the John Cooper Works 1to6 Special Edition with manual transmission is limited to only 999 units. The special edition marked its public appearance at the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, with deliveries beginning in Europe, the USA, Canada, and Mexico from September 2023.

Speaking of the exterior, the Mini John Cooper Works 1to6 Special Edition sports a host of cosmetic bits, such as a blacked-out colour scheme with chrome accents that replace the glossy black trims available with the standard model. While the Special Edition is available in only Midnight Black, the waistline finisher, large air intakes, and side scuttles are done in Piano Black.

In addition, the hatchback also has an edition-specific racing stripe that runs from the bonnet to the rear apron. 'One of 999' on the sunroof, C-pillar, and front fenders refers to the limited edition of the John Cooper Works 1to6. At the back, the vehicle features centrally-mounted dual exhaust tips, taillamps, a roof-mounted spoiler, and a manual transmission logo. The car rides on black-finished 18-inch circuit-spoked alloy wheels.
