MINI Cooper debuts competition dragster

Posted Oct 20, 2005, 2:30 PM ET by Stuart Waterman






MINI USA unveiled this wild MINI at Hot Import Nights in Phoenix this week, capturing the “Best Engineered” award for the event.

The MINI drag car was built by California tuner ”Fireball Tim” Lawrence, starting from a John Cooper Works-version MINI Cooper S. The 1700 lb, FWD racer features carbon-fiber bodywork and a 500 hp, “twin-charger” powerplant. Fireball’s blog has a history of the build-up, with pics.

The car will make its competition debut in Pomona this weekend at the NHRA Sport Compact World Finals, followed by an appearance at SEMA in Las Vegas.
