X-Raid Mini Countryman All4 Racing – Click above for high-res images

Some vehicles take longer to develop than others, but this has got to be one of the quickest turn-arounds we've seen yet.

When we reported just last week that the X-Raid rally team was preparing a version of the Mini Countryman to take to Dakar, they'd only been working on it for less than a month, but already had what looked like a pretty comprehensive rendering of what the final product would look like. And they weren't kidding: mere days later, the first batch of images have already popped up showing the Dakar-spec Mini looking pretty darn near ready to tackle the South American countryside.

If this isn't the most badass Mini Countryman to date, we don't know what is.
