Tearing Up the Nurburgring

January 26, 2006

What we have here is a video of the new Mini – also known as the "new new Mini", the "Mini Mk2", or simply "R56", it’s internal designation – eating up the famed Nurburgring track in Germany.

And not just any new Mini, but a new Cooper S (you can tell by the hood slit and double tailpipes).

I’ve seen the pictures, but they don’t do any justice to the video.  I mean, the way the thing just scoots around the corners, and in the rain no less!  I doubt my Mazda would make it through the first turn before sliding off the road…

    When is this speed demon due out?

    Production is supposed to begin in October, and it should start appearing at dealers and on the roads around January 2007.

    You know, I have a very patriotic lump in my throat right now. And I’m not German before you ask.
