Can a Mini Cooper S beat the2013 camaro 1lt

In a straight line and on a course I'm in a heated debate with my cousin! He says he has a stock supercharger.

Whatever we say won't settle the score anyway. You two go mano vs. mano and settle it.

He does have a stock supercharger. It should be close in a straight line. 0-60 will be side-by-side, you might pull ahead in the 1/4. In the twisties, he is probably going to walk away from you unless you have made some suspension upgrades. Those things are like go-carts.

A friend of mine has a Cooper S, well the supercharged one. With my new suspension I am not so sure it is a walk. Straight away I can catch him, corner with out new suspension he pulled away a little but it wasn't a walk away. I think the Cooper S is about 32K my car was 24K so stock stock not same. I say for price get a 1LE to battle the Cooper... haha.. now thats a walk away... perhaps a trot away.

I actually thought about selling my '10 S/Ced SS and buying a John Cooper S Mini car. Went and test drove and realized there'd be no way I could go down that much in the acceleration food chain.

Two days later I bought a ZL1. lol

A stock s/c mini S could not beat a 1LT camaro in a straight line. If it was an 07+ (or when ever the cooper S went turbo) I have a feeling it might be close. If it is a 07+ JCW I would actually enjoy watching that, I think it would be close. But as for a stock S/C mini s........ no way.

Ive driven a 07 mini S t/c (friends car) and a 2010 camaro 1lt (rental car). track the mini may have it, especially a tight autocross type track. straight line camaro hands down.

line 'em up anyway, shut your cousin up. oooooo wow a stock supercharger...... so what? a saturn ion redline has a stock supercharger, a 2004-2007 cobalt ss has a stock supercharger (not saying they are slow, but i know they wont take a lt camaro stock) a 03 ford focus svt has a stock supercharger.

You hardcore contradict yourself. Lol. First you say it would be close then you say hands down the camaro. The S went turbo in 07.

And no focus came stock with a blower. They made the SVT 02-04. It Had High compression and nice suspension and a 6 speed trans. No boost though.

I ran a 15.4 at 90 mph in my all stock 06 Mini Cooper S 6 spd. Never ran it after I did a pulley swap, but that made it much faster. That car was very fun to drive and sometimes I wish I had kept it.

That's the trap many fall into. They feel that because their V6 Camaro makes 300+ hp it must be fast.
Unfortunately due to the weight (3700 + lbs) its not all that fast. Don't get me wrong its not slow. But by today's standards its quite average in speed.
