MINI Pikes Peak Special with Nissan GT-R engine // 920Hp/950Kg Monster - Extended Version

On the 2013 edition of Pikes Peak International HillClimb one of the most important entries was of Jean Phillipe Dayraut at the wheel of a VR38DETT powered spaceframed MINI.

Capable of over 900Hp and wighing less than 1000Kg, this absolute Monster was the evolution of the machine the French driver had been using on Pikes Peak on the two years before, the Dacia Duster Pikes Peak Special, which we leave a link to its video here »»

Dayraut would go on to post a very fast chrono of 9.42 min, good enough for a 3rd place overall, despite braking problems on the last third of the event.
