AC Schnitzer Raptor MINI John Cooper Works Coupe

A John Cooper Works MINI Coupe is sufficiently fast enough, right? Of course it is – 211 hp, 280 Nm of peak torque and a 6.4 second run to the 60 mile an hour mark. But apparently, one such MINI recently did a lap on the Hockenheim Race Circuit with a time of 1:13.0 on slick tires. The event was a 2012 “Tuner Grand Prix” and was hosted by the “sport auto” magazine. That's pretty impressive, but AC Schnitzer believe, the Coupe can do better than that (it is after all a “tuner” prix). That is when th

MINI John Cooper Works GP

A GP designation on a MINI means that it has spawned from the depths of hell. Well, not really. It's more like a job from John Cooper Works. The last time we saw a similar speed demon was in 2006 when a MINI Cooper S with a GP Kit by John Cooper Works (the performance subsidiary of MINI's) with 136 hp-per-liter power ratio, lapped the Nurburgring in less than 8 min. 44 seconds. Today, we have a new one and the word is that it's the fastest MINI ever built. Because it still is in its trial per
