With the announcement that MINI is heading to the WRC, Prodrive will be selling complete Countryman rally race cars for any team willing to write the check. This not only helps defray the costs (producing more drives component costs down) but also speeds up development. In order to jump start orders for the 2011 season, Prodrive has released an official Countryman WRC brochure to spell out the various versions and packages available to race teams. It’s a great read and one that gives you some insight into all that goes into a professional racing program.

So the big question how much does the Countryman WRC rally car cost? Packages will start at a cool £346,000 (around $540,000) and will go up the more support you require from Prodrive. Interested? Download the official brochure below and give them a ring.
