JCW Endurance Videos: On the Track & in Detail

The JCW Endurance officially launched this morning at the famed Nurburgring. Powered by a 250 bhp version of the JCW race engine (which itself is mostly the stock engine) the JCW Endurance will take on the likes of BMW, Audi and Mercedes at the toughest 24 hour race in the world.

And now we can actually see it under its own power. We’ve managed to get a hold of some video of the car at the track that gives you a greater appreciation for everything that MINI has done in this one-off race-car.

(Second video after the break)

In addition to the video, here’s a look at the car from this morning’s launch at the ‘Ring. We’ll have much more on the car and the race in the coming days.

    Cool stuff here, I get the feeling that ///M had a hand in this.

    Is their any way to watch the 24 Hours of the Nurburgring here in the U.S.? It would be great to see this car run in anger.

    The 1:00 mark sound is glorious!

      Agreed, because for a moment the gear whine sounds like SC whine… bringing back many fond memories.  :)

    Excitement is here! The Coupe appears to be a valiant effort to invigorate the MINI performance legend. No question about it, it’s a great move forward. I would nonetheless like to see similar effort applied to the R56. It does, after all, embody the essential MINI tradition — even without a ketchup cap roof!

    Now that’s “stanced”! Looks great… glad to see MINI in various forms of motorsport.

    Nice video.  This MINI is starting to grow on me.  Can’t wait to see one in person!

    I can confirm that my JCW doesn’t sound like that.  Hmmm, wonder what’d a fellow could do to get that sound.
