Poooof JCW market gone. MINI needs to come in with 300 HP car or the market will pass them buy. All because a BMW will NEVER allow a MINI to have as much HP of any BMW PERIOD.

If you want that much power you will have to buy a BMW or an even better idea leave the brand.

Never mind the power, the looks kill it. Maybe with enough decals it will look cool.

There are lots of cars that meet that stupid Euro bumper regulation & look fine. MINI is just using that as an excuse for their terrible design.

GP1 go for it Mark!

The RS will look like the current FoST, with some slight cosmetic changes. Ford has historically brought out the RS towards the end of the models life cycle. It's like what MINI does with the GP.

I love my MINI and it's not going anywhere.

But we just drove the ST to DC and back and I have to say it is the best road trip car I've ever driven. Quite for the kind of car it is. Suspension is a great balance. Power and 29 mpg over the entire trip including all the stop and go in DC.

Just sayn'.

And I read yesterday the new Mazdaspeed 3 is going to be 300HP plus and possibly AWD.
And MINI just finished third in a comparison between the Golf and Honda Civic. WTF is this world coming too....

The only thing that might hurt the RS and the 3 is weight--they're not exactly light to begin with, and AWD wont' help that. I tried to find out if the 2nd generation RS shed weight from the stock Focus but couldn't find anything, I'm hoping the third generation RS will manage to come in significantly lighter than the stock Focus, otherwise it's not exactly going to be a featherweight (which is why I'd rather have a Fiesta RS but that's just me).

Where did you see this? Was it a comparison between base level Golf, Civic, and a Justa, or GTI, SI, and S?
