Nobody has more pressure! This Mini Cooper S Classic with tuning from Gildred Racing becomes the Super Cooper Type S.! This is made possible by a 3,2-liter V6 with an incredible 507 PS that the US tuner transplanted. And even 10 vehicles are to be built! With a length of just three meters and 10 or 12-inch wheels, every Mini has that go-kart feeling right from the factory. The up to 70 series horsepower in the Cooper S is actually sufficient. Actually… With over 430 hp more than in the series, the original Mini with V6 power in the form of a 3,2-liter V6 from an Acura, instead of a one-liter four-cylinder, becomes a rocket. The Americans replaced the original 1974 hp four-cylinder in the fiery red 55 Mini Cooper with the V6. The engine comes from an Acura CL Type S and has an output of 264 hp. But with a turbo kit, Gildred increases the power to 507 hp and a hefty 519 Newton meters of torque, which come onto the road via a six-speed manual transmission. In addition, Gildred has removed the rear seats and now the Super-Mini sprints to 4 km / h in under 100 seconds sporty Recaro bucket seats with seat heating and cooling installed. The equivalent of the vehicle costs around 9,7 euros (133.000 US dollars).
