• 2012 MINI Coupe Targa Raze by RevoZport

LISTEN 01:18

When you start thinking about MINI, there’s growing sentiment that the German automaker has become increasingly adept at building some pretty aggressive machines.

Some aftermarket companies has taken notice too, and one of them, RevoZport, has announced their new program for both the MINI Coupe and Roadster, christening it the "Targa Raze."

Built in-house to be the kind of MINI program we just fall head over hells for, the Targa Raze is beyond sick, with a bodykit that includes new bumpers, revised side skirts, and a ventilated hood, all of which are made from carbon and Kevlar. Likewise, a carbon fiber roof and a prominent rear spoiler are part of the program, reducing the car’s weight by 40kg/88 lbs while also widening its profile by 15mm.

Under the hood, RevoZport opted for a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that now comes with new, larger intercooler, new camshafts, a remapped ECU unit, and a new titanium exhaust system. With all these modifications in tow, the Targa Raze now has an impressive output of 250 horsepower, an increase of 69 ponies from the standard model’s 181-horsepower output.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

I presume it is a very light car. 250 horsepower in a race competition will not surely win. But this one I think has the guts to compete.

How did they come up with this concept?! It’s really great! I like how they made the exterior design. A light vehicle with the capacity of generating 250 horsepower will be a big threat to other race cars.

This Mini Coupe done by RevoZport is something like the roadster they had before. It’s good that they see this as a combination of the two segments.

I’m still looking for something more from them. I know that they will have better options on this Mini Roadster and a coupe.

You know for me, I don’t see anything wrong with this new coupe. They cut the garb to convert it into speed.

Who wouldn’t love the new coupe of Mini? They put this coupe on a diet to gain the target weight of reducing 40KG.
