Dale Earnhardt Jr. is  looking to rearrange his personal car collection, so his customized 270-horsepower Mini Cooper is officially on the block. Mini tuning house Mini Mania is responsible for the barrage of modifications to the car, which include upgrades to the computer, suspension, exhaust and more.

In addition to the go-fast bits, the Mini sports new wheels, a body kit, and a custom carbon fiber and chrome interior. Dale Jr. has autographed the visor already, and will do likewise to the dash at the buyer's request. Best of all, the winning bidder will have the chance to take delivery directly from Dale Jr. at his house in North Carolina.

As of this writing, the current bid is $28,501. That's not a lot of cash for a pretty fun package where you get the car and meet the star. The auction ends Thursday, June 29.

Thanks to reader Robert K. for the tip!

      No surprise, but the intellectual capacity of most Autoblog posters toward this story is severely lacking...again.

      Is it REALLY such a stretch to believe that a NASCAR driver (or ANY race car driver for that matter) might drive something else than a big honkin' truck, SUV, or musclecar when he/she isn't racing?

      Contrary to popular belief, there is driving happiness without eight or more cylinders and rear-wheel drive. Stop being so damned myopic.

      At least it has low miles.

      Re: the previous owner, I'd rather have John Voight's former convertible. They would not believe me if I told them Dale Earnhardt Jr. was driving a mini, they would all laugh to my face: you bough a used mini for ofer 30Gs thinking it belonged to whom? What a retard you are!

      I started laughing when I saw this picture. I too couldn't believe he owned this. No wonder he wants to get rid of it by promoting himself along the way.

      He lives about 5 mins from my dads house. They are friends but he's a dick in real life tho.

      In the Q and A section, it says that the car is dynoed at 223 with 20% drivetrain loss. That is a giant number. Most front wheel drive cars, have about 15% dribetrain loss at the most.

      Scott, you speak the same way jealous losers speak.

      I live near DEI, etc. and the local word is that Junior is a jerk, unlike his old man.

      But that has nothing to do with this car or this auction. I am a disabled person with little in the way of worldly goods but I am happy for those who do, like Junior.
