On the 22nd of May in Silverstone, England, the MINI United event will kick off to celebrate all things MINI. While it will be MINI heaven through and through, fans of the iconic Cooper may have one extra reason to get excited.

According to MotoringFile, Mini is preparing to launch a special edition F1 Cooper at the event.

To appear in non-metallic British Racing Green, the MINI would coincide with the creation of John Cooper's first ever Formula 1 car.

It's not just a coat of paint either, with black racing stripes, a white roof and mirrors, a JCW aero-kit, and a host of special F1 badges added to complete the look.

Unfortunately, there's no word on any mechanical revisions, so expect the same engine as seen in the JCW Mini Cooper S.

Still, with over 150kW (200hp) and 264Nm (192lb-ft) of torque, the MINI isn't exactly a slouch. Just don't go taking those badges too seriously.

Unfortunately, only 50 to 100 units of the F1 Edition MINI are expected to be produced, so don't expect to see it 'downunder'.
