The idea was simple – best the Tanner Foust’s 332 foot jump with a 360 foot jump in a bespoke 1,000 hp MINI Countryman.

P90151085-MINI Superleggera Vision Roadster Concept

The Superleggera has taken the world by storm as much as a MINI concept could. It’s been widely praised by critics and enthusiasts alike for its beauty and interpretation of MINI’s classic design principles and dose of British style.
