You may also be interested to know most BMW model codes start with an E................the early New MINI project was known as the E50 at BMW until they handed over full responsibility to Rover to complete the design in May 1996, at this point it became known as the R50 (R standing for Rover Group).

As posts above, but in short:

R50 = 1st gen ONE, Cooper, OneD
R52 = 1st gen ONE, Cooper, & Cooper S Convertibles
R53 = 1st gen Cooper S hatch only (inc GP)
R55 = MINI Clubman (all derivatives)
R56 = MINI 2nd Gen Hatch (all derivatives)
R57 = Forthcoming MINI Convertible
