Mini John Cooper Works Dakar buggy revealed

Mini John Cooper Works Dakar buggy revealedMini revealed the Buggy rally racer Tuesday and noted its rear-wheel-drive layout. While the Mini JCW Rally features an all-wheel-drive layout, Dakar Rally rules give two-wheel driven cars certain advantages. Thus, the Buggy was born. Work began on the JCW Buggy in February 2017 and the race car boasts a specially designed tubular steel frame with carbon fiber-reinforced plastic and Kevlar stretched over the frame itself. A 3.0-liter inline-6 diesel engine provides 340 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

To ensure the driver is protected in an emergency, a tubular steel fram surrounds the ‘cabin’, while the body is made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), and Kevlar is stretched over the frame.

The 2018 Dakar Rally will be the 40th running of the long-distance rally event and Mini and X-Raid will run seven cars. Each driver and co-pilot will tackle trails as the rally pits them against South America’s desert stages, complete with rock and boulder fields. The first stage kicks off on January 6 and the final stage is slated for January 20.
