We’ve spent a lot of time talking about mid-engined versions of cars we already know. First, it was the mid-engined Corvette. Then the mid-engined Camry. And now, an artist has brought us a mid-engined Mini.
The video, posted by The Sketch Monkey and spotted by Carscoops, goes through how the designer brings Mini themes to the mid-engined supercar format. The finished product is round, bubbly and cute while still maintaining some supercar aggression.
Since it’s entirely theoretical, there’s no time spent on what would power a Mini supercar. But, based on the companies roots of lightweight performance, we could imagine a BMW i8 drivetrain dropped into a smaller package.
Naturally, this is nothing more than a fun thought experiment. On the list of companies likely to make a mid-engined supercar, Mini falls somewhere between Jeep and Buick. Even still, the finished product looks cool.
