Alfa Romeo 4C fights Mini JCW Roadster in rare drag race

Sure, its styling is up for debate (I personally love the quirky cuts) but its power-to-weight ratio is better than that of the Lotus Elise's and almost as good as an Evora's.  With that, you can almost expect the 4C to outperform even more powerful sports cars out there. As for the Mini Cooper JCW Roadster, a stock one comes off a showroom with a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine that's good for 208 bhp. That's a huge power bump, but we can't discredit the fact that the Mini is significantly heavier than the Alfa at 1,255 kg.
