Next week I have to go and help someone out with the purchase of a new Mini. It’s going to be their first new car in quite some time, so I figured I’d post this video just to show her how much fun these little guys can be. Now I doubt very much that she’ll be hoon-doggin’ through the streets of Manhattan like this, but sometimes it just feels good to know that your car can perform like this, even if you can’t. Mini’s are not the fastest cars around by any means, but they’re fun as hell when you drive them fast. They handle like go-karts, sound great (if you get the Cooper S) and are also very economical. In fact Mini doesn’t make a model that gets under 31 mpg on the highway. The big question now is, which one to get? The standard Mini, Cooper S, or maybe the Clubman. Hmm… I think I liked it better when there were only two models to choose from.
