Mini John Cooper Works WRC car in action - Click above to watch the video after the jump

Mini's World Rally Championship team has some work ahead if it intends to live up to the brand's historic rally credentials, but the post-jump video illustrates that Mini clearly has the tool needed for success.

Follow the jump to watch drivers Dani Sordo and Kris Meeke as they take the horns of the Mini John Cooper Works WRC car, which is based on the Countryman. Mini's "cute and hip" aesthetic gives way to something a bit more badass when it's attacking a rally circuit. You'll hear no complaints from us. Follow the jump for one minute and 38 seconds of fast-paced video.

      You'd think that with that clip being only a minute and a half, they wouldn't have had to reuse footage. I mean really? Its like I just watched the same clip twice in a row.

      Thank God Mini is fulfilling this rally image. It seems their only passion lately has been to take the VW beetles place atop the feminine car segment.
