mini coupe at nuburgring

Mini is currently waist-deep in a world tour to show off its new Cooper Coupe. We've seen the prototype journey to the top of Mt. Washington, and now a pair of John Cooper Works Coupes have been put to the most grueling of tests in Germany. How so? Mini sent the Coupes into the Green Hell to compete in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

The Mini JCW Coupes ran strong, and, rather impressively, both crossed the finish line 24 hours after entering the 'Ring. Click past the jump to watch a highlight reel of the 5,600-kilometer journey.
