Video: Spectacular 900bhp Mini Hillclimb On Board

When is a Mini not quite a Mini? Probably when it’s running a 900bhp six-cylinder engine loosely related to something you’d find under the bonnet of a Nissan Skyline. As you can see in the video, this thing is no Italian Job reject. Jean-Phillippe Dayraut gets this Pikes Peak-prepared Mitjet monster fully crossed up into the first turn, straightens up and absolutely hammers it up through Molecomb, clattering through the gears and gathering spectacular pace.
