Matt Farah Squeezes into Mini Cooper Works GP

And a sandwhich squeezes into Matt Farah.

If you’re looking to buy a fast Mini, there’s only one factory-built option to consider: the 2014 Mini Cooper Works GP. It’s the best you can get in terms of raw performance from the outgoing second-gen Mini. It’s also the fastest Mini ever made, relatively light and sends 211 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels via a six-speed manual. To check one out in action, watch Matt Farah and crew get behind the wheel of a Mini GP in the Silver State Classic.

It's basically a 90-mile open road race through the Nevada desert. Farah’s goal is to average 110 mph without exceeding 124 mph. Basically he wants to go as fast as possible without getting caught. Good plan indeed.
