Folks over at report that a four wheel drive Mini Cooper S outfitted by Gertrag is 10% faster than a standard Cooper S. The story goes on to explain the system is actually more of a rear-wheel set-up that puts power to the front wheels if the electronic control system senses a loss of traction. Of course the Mini enthusiast site is eager for big daddy BMW to take a look at this custom job and say "We should do that." And with the popularity of the Mini in large northern cities AWD might be one more option to increase sales as the design ages.
