The F60 Countryman is ending on a high note and a preview of what’s to come with the wild looking Countryman Uncharted Edition. MINI has released photos but not much more on what looks to be the most interesting special edition Countryman we’ve seen yet from the manufacture. Taking a nod from the incredible Clubman Scrambler concept, MINI has subtly upgraded the Countryman is more off-road worthy tires and the first ever factor two-tone paint.

MINI has yet to say when or where this special edition will be available but it’s shown here as a Cooper S All4. The key mechanical change appears to be the addition of General Grabber AT tires. According to General the Grabber AT is an all-terrain tire developed to meet the needs of SUV, pick-up truck and off-road vehicle drivers who want a combination of exceptional off-road capabilities and confident on-road manners. It combines experience exceptional grip, off-road performance and maximum comfort.

What is really interesting to us is what this previews. We’ve heard from several sources that the next generation U25 MINI Countryman will have several, more off-road capable variants. The rumors point to MINI becoming much more aggressive in how it styles and equips the Countryman in an effort to broaden its capabilities and appeal. This new Uncharted Edition looks to our eyes as a first (if not minimal) attempt at that.

We’ll have more on the MINI Countryman Uncharted Edition soon.
