The company declined to say what the special edition will celebrate but it will be shown alongside a variety of other M models including the M3 and M4 Coupe. The BMW i8 will also tackle the famous 1.16 mile (1.86 km) long hill climb.

MINI fans will get a chance to check out the 2014 Cooper and the John Cooper Works concept. The company will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Paddy Hopkirk's win at the 1964 Monte Carlo. As part of the celebration, Hopkirk will be on hand to sign autographs and answer questions about the race.
