JDM Sleeper Mini [Season Premiere]

Bílar og ökutæki

We originally found this Mini Cooper in Tokyo - one of the J-Spec models made specifically for the Japanese Domestic Market. After upgrading it with a supercharger and an E85 conversion, we decided it was time to take it to the next level and transform it into the ultimate Mini sleeper...

    I really enjoyed the video, but I suspect that your next step will be to increase rim size in order to increase brake size and raise thermal capacity. Because no way those tiny rotors will do well with 200hp, even on a 700kg sled. Especially if you track the car... ;-)

    I don't quiet get it why people hate on Honda's.. Yes there are the generic dickheads that have base model civic with a loud exhaust. Now I don't spite races, they call me out. Real world, I've had my s2000 for a decade and I've raced alot of cars, v8's, rx7's and pulsars, etc.. There's quiet a few. Overall, the NA engine has smoked them. I don't know their mods but generally the dickheads that don't know shit about their car but 'think its fast' It's sad

    George Richardson Maybe not to someone who knows, but to lamen, it’s just a mini. Would be hella confusing getting chopped by a mini making VTEC noises! But I agree. Although I’d say it looks closer to a JCW Mini.

    @Sour Skittles the cars exterior does not look stock at all! Therefore it is not a sleeper. It is lowered on wide aftermarket wheels with stretched tyres. A sleeper by definition is a powerful tuned car with stock everything on the exterior of the car. Stock OEM. This minis exterior is far from OEM.
