    An interesting video although I wish is wasn't heavily edited and just had the lap in a single frame for its entirety.

    Source: Video: Race-spec Mini E laps Nürburgring — Autoblog

    Comparisons: Nordschleife lap records -

    Mini John Cooper Works: 8:35 @ 144km/h
    Mini Cooper S Works: 8:55 @ 139 km/h
    Mini Cooper S: 9:31 @ 130km/h
    Mini E Race: 9:51 @ 187km/h

    I realize there has been a lot of arguments about timing methodologies but I'll ignore that for now. Interestingly, while having the slowest lap time, the Mini E managed to hit the top speed of the group.

    I think the weight of the Mini E have an affect on the lap time.
