Video: Supercharged Mini screams through the passes

A change of pace from the usual Elevenses today. Well at least initially. An anonymous young man open a clean and well-ordered lock-up (if only all our garages looked as neat) and readies his car for a trip.

That it is a Mini is obvious enough and it clearly has had some love and attention lavished on it but just how much starts to become clear when it is fired up with a bark worthy of a BTCC champion. The action then moves - rapidly - to what looks like an Alpine pass where the Mini is in its element. We weren't lucky enough to sneak a peak under the bonnet in the earlier part of the film but that A-series lump certainly sounds like it is sporting a sizeable supercharger. If the owner is reading this, can we have a go please?

Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: Onboard an R32 GT‑R at the ‘Ring
