The Monster Energy X-raid Team officially unveiled the exciting new Mini All4 Racing at its rollout in Trebur, near Frankfurt, on Friday.

X-raid's Mini All4 Racing will take part in the 33rd Personal Dakar Argentina-Chile from January 1st-16th, 2011. The new car has a power output of 315 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and has impressed team driver Guerlain Chicherit from the outset.

"The first short test drive was exciting for me and the team and also quite promising," enthused Chicherit. "I'm really looking forward to the test in France next week now. With the powerful engine and unique handling characteristics of the Mini All4 Racing, we have a good chance in the 2011 Dakar." X-raid team director Sven Quandt is also delighted after the rollout of the new model: "Our team has succeeded, despite the very short development time. We have a vehicle off the ground, which will be competitive.

"The Mini All4 Racing offers exceptional handling, greater ease of service and, thanks to our cooperation with BMW Motoren GmbH on the engine side, we have increased engine performance and efficiency." After the somewhat unusual unveiling in snowy conditions, the Mini All4 Racing will undergo extensive testing in France on December 13th-14th. Chicherit and French co-driver Michel Périn will then give the new car its competitive debut on the Dakar Rally, starting on New Year's Day in Buenos Aires.
