Video: MINI John Cooper Works Cabrio Hits Rallye Monte Carlo

Follow Nelson

Rally racing isn't especially popular here in the U.S., but MINIs sure are, and it's always exciting to see a capable car put to use in a historical context. Today, MINI brings us the Rallye Monte Carlo in the JCW MINI Cabrio at the hands of rally greats Rauno Aaltonen and Paddy Hopkirk.

The video is certainly a major upgrade from the last batch of videos out of MINI, featuring a creepy yet attractive pair of twins somehow advertising the upcoming MINI Coupe and Roadster, unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.

It's Friday, and for about half the country, it's after 5 p.m., so sit back, kick your feet up, and enjoy the video.

  1. Mini, celebrating its 50th birthday, has since become a Bavarian company. While the John Cooper Works convertible Messrs. Hopkirk and Aaltonen take for a spin has three times the horsepower of their original race cars and would out-accelerate a Lamborghini Miura, you do wonder whether it could race against more powerful machines like its diminutive predecessor (not).
