The guys from the YouTube channel Stef ABtv decided to find out if the British Mini Cooper JCW will be able to overtake a real Italian supercar Alfa Romeo 4C in a straight race.

In the world of light sports cars, the Italian Alfa Romeo 4C is one of the best. Of course, his style raises some questions, but his power-to-weight ratio of 1.21 horsepower per kg is better than the legendary British Lotus Elise.

Given the above fact, we can expect that the 4C will surpass even more powerful sports cars. But how can an Italian sports car show itself in a race against the Mini Cooper JCW roadster in a straight race? The guys from the YouTube channel Stef ABtv are interested in this issue. I’ll get ahead of myself – the Mini car has its own ace in hand.

Before watching the video, which is located at the top of this article, let’s get acquainted with the passport data of our current competitors.

Alfa Romeo 4C is equipped with a 1.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 240 hp. (350 Nm). These numbers are not so big, but, given the “dry” weight of the car at 940 kg, it has an incredible power to weight ratio, which I mentioned above.

As for the Mini Cooper JCW in the roadster, the car is equipped with a 1.6 liter turbocharged gasoline engine with a capacity of 208 hp as standard.

However, this is not an ordinary Mini JCW Roadster. According to its owner, this is an upgraded version of the machine – the engine develops 270 hp. (400 Nm). This is a huge increase in power compared to standard indicators, but do not forget that the British machine weighs 1255 kg.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a silent race in which participated the electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S and Tesla Model S P100D. In this article, we will talk about the race between the electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S 2020 model year and the 2019 American electric car Tesla Model S P100D.
