The bonkers 870Hp/1014Nm Inline 5 Turbo Mini Quattro
Originally built for Gatebil and now delving into the HillClimb Racing world...
Originally built by Brede Alnes for the Norwegian Gatebil Series (at the time with a 4 Cylinder 1.8L Turbo Engine), this is now Chris Slade´s Monster, powered now by a 870Hp/1014Nm 2.5L Straight 5 Turbocharged Engine and we were finally able to see it trying Hillclimbing in the last few years at St. Goueno in France ( clips show are from 2017, 2018 and 2019).
As one can imagine everything on this car is custom made and little of it is actually a Mini to begin with. Body is built by Z-Cars, entirely from fiberglass, using Lexan windows and of course the whole Chassis is tubeframed. The custom independent suspension was built by Mobek Racing using Bilstein shocks. The brakes are AP Racing four-piston with 310 mm discs up front and Audi S3 with EBC Turbogroove discs in back. One of the other modifications performed by MR. Slade since aquiring the car was fitting a 6-Speed Sequential Gearbox.
Engine used is a 2.5 L Audi 20v 07K inline-five upgraded with JD pistons, H-rods, forged crankshaft and a Dry-Sump System. It produces 870Hp and 747 lb-ft (1,014 Nm) of torque thanks to a Precision 64/68 turbocharger and 1600 cc injectors. The custom AWD system is assembled from the Audi parts bin using an Audi 02Q six-speed manual transmission from an Audi A3 2.0 L TDI with a Tilton 2-disc clutch and billet flywheel. Rest of the drivetrain is sourced from an Audi A3 with GKN custom driveshafts and a modified Haldex Center Diff, maintaining 50/50 power distribution at all times.
