If you’re going to shake down a new car, I can’t think of a better way than turning one into an endurance racer and running it for 24 hours on the Green Hell. Mini thought the same thing, so they rolled out two Mini JCW Coupes for last weekend’s 24 hour race on the Nürburgring. Their goals were modest and they weren’t racing to win; instead, they merely wanted both cars to finish the event, which is quite an achievement for a race car’s first outing. Both coupes ultimately finished, racking up nearly 3,500 miles over the race weekend.
On a separate note, what’s your take on the newest Mini’s looks? I’m not sure myself, since it just looks like a chopped and shortened Mini to me. Is it a fail or is it a win? Would you drive one?
