Messed around with an R56 Mini John Cooper Works and I've got to say it's an awesome little car! 200bhp in a Mini chassis really does fly once you can get the grip down. The noise from the exhaust is quite cheeky too with pops and bangs on the regular. Worth a try if you can get your hands on one.
Wouldn't say no to that R33 either though.
