My view on mini hp 

                                 65 hp at wheels for a good Cooper S road car

                                 low 90-100 hp at wheels for most Group Nb historic racers ( how they get their HP depends on head cam etc) on NE102 fuel or slightly higher on E85

                                 a very few top few cars just north of the 100 hp figure. and to top off the lot

                                 a standard mini 850 - maybe 29 hp with a 0 - 100kph timed in minutes instead of seconds  -----   

 

                                 but all of the above can be a tonne of fun regardless   ( and i'll have a drive in the mustang and xu1 as well)

That green xu1 isn't slow. Sure I think they were driving around together. ie The Torana waved him through. But just the same, that mini pulls through third pretty damn good.
