The Los Angels event which kicks off at the of the month will be home to the MINI John Cooper Works Knights Edition, an all-black interpretation of the iconic MINI that uses Midnight Black and Melting Silver for the body, as well as red accents here and there.

The Knights will be leading the charge on the show with an army consisting of four other special edition models. These are the MINI Countryman Yin Yang Edition, which will be available in both white and black, the MINI Clubman Starlight Edition, MINI Cooper S E Countryman PHEV special edition and the MINI John Cooper Works International Orange Edition presented back in summer.

“Individualization and customization are core elements of the MINI brand,” said in a statement Thomas Felbermair, MINI Region Americas vice president.

“This not only includes a range of options and accessories available for our cars, but also a unique range of limited production special editions that have long been part of the MINI DNA since the first generation Mini was produced in 1959.”

But aside for the models to be shown on the floor of the Los Angeles show, MINI has also made an exciting announcement, one which will officially be made during the event: the MINI John Cooper Works GP will hit the road in 2020.

The GP was initially introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September last year and was meant as a tribute to the Monte Carlo Rally wins of the British brand half a century ago.
