Good news for all you nostalgists: the new Mini has finally lived up to its rally heritage and won a global rallying event. After a shaky return to the WRC last year, five Dakar-spec Countrymans entered into the grueling 6,000-mile Dakar Rally in South America and only went and bloody won it. Not just that, all five cars finished in the top 10: not bad for their first run-out.
