World Record Broken
On Saturday the 7th September, at the FIA European Finals at Santa Pod Raceway, England, Thomas Barnes piloted the 1320MINI.com BMW MINI to a new world record. Thomas drove the MINI hard – the result: a new world ET record for a BMW MINI of 10.379 @ 136.58 in a ¼ of a mile and if that wasn’t enough a few hours later a new world MPH record for a BMW MINI in ¼ of a mile of 139.83.

Featured on the cover of this month’s Fast Car magazine the world’s fastest MINI. With over 640BHP it’ll out drag a Veyron!

but it's turbocharged. I think if you do that you're not really developing the original car. If it was a cooper S and they put on a bigger supercharger I could understand that.

Is there a build sheet for this car? Curious to see what all they had to do to get there.

It was actually originally an R50 MINI One not a R53 Cooper S so did not have a supercharger......
