This is one for the ages folks, the best test drive of a MINI we’ve seen so far. Drive editor and MINI enthusiast Matt Farah took the fastest car ever to be built in Oxford on what Americans call the Silver State Classic race.
That’s a race that takes place in the Nevada desert every year on a closed highway with cars of all sorts, divided into categories. The category the MINI JCW GP they had to test fell into required them to average a speed as close to 110 mph (176 km/h) without going over 124 mph (198 km/h).

Of course, Matt being Matt, and the GP being such a formidable car to drive, those limits didn’t mean anything to them, whatsoever, going, at times, as far as 150 mph (240 km/h), really pushing the limits on that little MINI.

However, things weren’t as fun as they seem reading these lines, and you get to see his co-driver making sandwiches, playing cars, making balloon animals and even cutting his nails during the whole ordeal, all in the funny, specific way Farah’s been getting us used to. Enjoy!
