United-States Is my Mini a R56?

Hello, I recently purchased a 2011 Mini cooper S. I love the car and am just trying to get more info on it. I've seen a few different things refering to some newer mini's being R56. Does it have to do with the model year?

Yes yours is an R56 and it doesnt have anything to do with the model year, its designates the 2nd evolution of the MINI hatchback model in general.
