If the MINI Countryman JCW hasn't sparked your interest, perhaps the upcoming Prodrive variant will do the trick.

Inspired by the Countryman WRC, which was developed by Prodrive, the street-legal model is expected to feature an aerodynamic body kit, unique alloy wheels and a carbon fiber rear wing.

Power will reportedly come from a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that has been equipped with an optimized ECU and a sports exhaust system. Sources say the mill will produce 230 hp (172 kW / 233 PS), but a larger turbocharger is under consideration.
