The special Mini makes its first public appearance this weekend.

Attendees of the Mini Takes The States biennial owners road rally, which kicks off this Saturday, July 14, in Portland, Oregon, and Orlando, Florida, will get to see a new special edition Mini. The compact runabout makes up for its compact stature with its long model name – Mini John Cooper Works Hardtop International Orange Edition. The automaker will showcase the unique Mini at both events simultaneously before the limited-production model goes on display in Keystone, Colorado for the final gathering of events July 20 through the 22.
