Prodrive, as you may know, is responsible for MINI’s World Rally Car, the Countryman WRC. Now they are thinking of a road-going version of that car.
Now those who have seen the WRC Countryman in action now that it is one helluva beast. So the idea of a hotted-up County from Prodrive sounds pretty tempting.
The car will features a body kit similar to the rally car, with big wing and everything and unique wheels. The more important part is the engine of course, and apparently Prodrive wwants to go for a Superchips-tuned version of the Cooper S’s turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine featuring Milltek exhausts.
Prodrive-tuned MINIs are going to have to be faster than Cooper and Works versions to make sense.
