Speculation - Road Going version of WRC Countryman

The independent site Ausmotive recently reported that a few months ago they heard a rumor that a road going Countryman could possibly maybe be in the works. They go on to drop such choice tidbits like 300hp and widebody...

There is talk that if such a beast might be available the concept could, possibly, maybe be shown at September's Frankfort Auto Show.

They claim their source has done them right in the past....

This could possibly maybe be very interesting.

Probably some tape stripes & odd colored mirror covers. If it had some real content that would be great. Time will tell.

You got my interest.
Maybe something to compete against WRX and EVOs. However, I suspect MINI would sale the cars for much more than a WRX or EVO.

Could be like the GP. Road worthy, but not for everyone.

Yep those GP's were some fine Pontiac's. Did the Pontiac Grand Prix ever win one of those races?

You know what I meant, or at least what I thought I meant, if you know what I mean.
