MINI and John Cooper Works (JCW) have launched a special Countryman ALL4 to celebrate their triumph at the Dakar Rally 2013 - piloted by the French pairing of Stephane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret for the second year in a row.

Peterhansel's second Dakar Rally victory in the MINI ALL4 Racing is also his 11th overall career win. To mark this achievement, the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 Dakar Winner 2013 will be produced in a limited run of 11 units and sold exclusively in Peterhansel's home country of France.

The special edition combines a race-bred powertrain and chassis technology with the ALL4 all-wheel drive system. The Countryman is powered by a 218bhp turbocharged four-cylinder engine and is finished in a stealthy matt black, disrupted by striking green highlights.

The car bears both the Dakar Rally winner's logo and the signature of Peterhansel on the bonnet.
