Synonymous with extracting additional power and performance from BMW cars, AC Schnitzer has produced a MINI – capable of embarrassing many a supercar.

Taking a MINI John Cooper Works as a base vehicle, the technicians at Aachen not only turned its wick up to 260 HP, but also adopted the ‘less is more’ philosophy by erasing an astonishing 80 kg from the car’s weight, to create the AC Schnitzer Eagle.

The result is a little MINI that can lap the Sport Auto-H&R Tuner GP, hosted at Hockenheim Circuit, in just 1:13.341 min. To put that into perspective, that’s faster than an Audi RS 4 (1:15,4 min), BMW M3 (1:14,3 min), Porsche 911 Carerra S (1:14,3 min), and even the Ferrari California (1:13,5 min).

AC Schnitzer value the Eagle at €62,000.00, but, sadly it’s not available to buy as it’s nothing more than a development test vehicle.
