Spy Photos—Mini E Racer Coupe

Mini E Racer Coupe

This Mini coupe, caught testing on the public roads of Germany by KGP Photography's shooter in Europe, is rumored to be running BMW's next-generation of electric car running gear, compared to the first Mini E effort that ran a sub-10-minute lap on the Nürburgring in the spring of 2010.

While the shots of the coupe are enticing, the team had no specifics on the changes made, beyond the all-electric running gear. However, judging by the massive rear wing and racing Recaros, several performance-minded upgrades are likely in the mechanical mix. KGP expects a future timed 'Ring run, and what else BMW/Mini has in store remains to be seen—although a limited production isn't expected to be in the cards, unlike the prior Mini E.
