Ever since I first laid eyes on the Mini WRC car, I knew two things about it. Firstly, that it looks like an RC car I had in the 90's and secondly, that a road legal version of it would be awesome. Current reports are syaing that it will feature a fixed carbon fiber wing, lightweight alloy wheels, a body kit, a Prodrive exhaust, and some engine tuning. The sad bit is that right now the thing is only reported to have about 230 horses under the bonnet, although slapping a larger turbo on the 1.6L four pot is being considered. If it is, we will be very interested. If it stays at 230 horse, we'll only be mildly interested.
