Tuners are now giving names to their car! We just looked at the Whitestorm, and now check out the MINI Cooper Eagle by AC Schinitzer.
This car is actually developed for track use and the evidence of it is the blistering time it’s set around Hockenheim race track. The Eagle has undergone a heavy engine refinement program ad gets revised turbocharger and intercooler, new ECU software, racing-grade exhausts, limited slip differential, sport clutch, lightweight battery, and racing suspension.
The power output is 260 hp at 5,000 rpm and 340 Nm of torque at 2,950 rpm, which means the car makes 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds and top speed of 250 km/h.
The car also features an aerodynamic kit with a big rear wing, new wing mirror, and carbon fiber doors for lightness. The interior is also littered with carbon fiber parts.The overall weight of the car is now 1049 kg.
All these efforts and the 62,000 euros price tag of the car might seem pointless at first, but it has produced amazing lap times. It went round Hockenheim in 1 minute 13.3 seconds. In comparison, Ferrari California did that in 1 minute 13.5 seconds!
