Rivaling the Mercedes CLS63 Shooting Brake S-Model 4Matic for the longest name for a vehicle debuting today at the Geneva Motor Show, MINI has revealed what it calls the JCW Countryman All4 Dakar Winner 2013.

Built to celebrate the brand’s victory at this year’s Dakar race, just 11 versions of the car will be built to celebrate driver Stephane Peterhansel’s 11 Dakar victories.

Based on the JCW Countryman model with All4 all-wheel drive, it gains obvious upgrades like 19-inch wheels and matte black paint with neon green detailing, not to mention the names of both drivers, Stephane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret, and the car’s number: 302.

Green detailing continues in the cabin with the neon shade being used for stitching on the shifter and floor mats, as well as for embroidered logos on the headrests.

In addition to a special JCW steering wheel and custom sports seats, each of the 11 cars will get a special edition logo complete with a serial number

Pricing for the MINI JCW Countryman ALL4 Dakar Winner 2013 was not announced.
