Video: Racing an 870PS Quattro‑swapped Mini is disgustingly fast

Even after just one corner, it’s undeniably apparent that this Mini is a proper handful to drive. The reason is that it has an Audi Quattro powertrain with 870PS (640kW) and 1,040Nm (770lb ft) of torque which, frankly, we’re surprised doesn’t pull the car apart.
