Mini car, meet mini land.

When Mini took the wraps off the second facelift for its staple 3-Door Hatch, 5-Door Hatch and Convertible models in January, fans of the brand likely noticed one odd omission from the brand's media materials: the hero John Cooper Works variant.

Fortunately, the British brand's race-inspired (if only in name) hot hatchback and convertible duo haven't been killed off with the facelift, instead undergoing their own round of design changes, including a bespoke front end with more aggressive styling intended to better differentiate them from lesser Cooper S models.

So here we are – enjoy a 30-plus image gallery of Mini's hi-po roadster touring along the coastal roads and in the classical cities of Sylt, an island off the coast of northern Germany (and southern Denmark).
