MINI Countryman Jumps on Alpina Wheels in Indonesia

It’s not every day that you get to see Alpina’s famous turbine wheels on another car. It’s even less probable to see them on anything else but a BMW and yet... Here we are.

What we’re looking at here is a MINI Countryman wearing the famous wheel design from Alpina and it looks nothing short of spectacular. The fitment is perfect, even though the rims measure 20x8 inches at the front and 20x9 inches at the back.

The overall body of the car also helps out, this being the biggest car the British company ever made, even under BMW’s supervision. Fitted with a complete Cooper S kit, it’s a really stunning car in a bright red paint.

Under the bonnet hides a stock engine which means the 1.6 liters of displacement makes 184 HP and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque with overboost that are good for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint of just 7.6 seconds with the manual 6-speed gearbox. Not bad for a car weighing 1,310 kg (2,888 lbs).

So, now, the owner can take his entire family out for a drive aboard his MINI, with room for baggage too, while also looking pretty stylish on Alpina wheels. Looks and sounds good, right?
