Prodrive To Produce Hot Tuned Countryman S


Autocar.co.uk reports that Prodrive, the MINI WRC Team outfitter, is planning to produce a hot Prodrive tuned version of the MINI Countryman. Autocar.co.uk provides some scoop photos of a modded Countryman and says, in part,
This heavily modified all-wheel-drive Countryman Cooper S features a muscular body kit that includes a large fixed carbonfibre wing, along with custom unbranded alloy wheels.
Performance upgrades include a Prodrive-branded Milltek exhaust and a Superchips-tuned version of the Cooper S’s turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine. Sources have indicated that the car had run 230bhp on the dyno, but Superchips is still hoping for even more power and a larger turbo was under consideration.
