Have you ever wondered how renderings and photoshoped images are done? The skills and tools needed? Well, the video below gives us a detailed step-by-step tutorial on how to turn a “standard” MINI Countryman model into the highly awaited MINI WRC.

Back in July, MINI announced their return to the World Rally Championship. From 2011, the brand will compete at selected rounds of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) and will go on to contest the entire season from 2012 onwards. This involvement is planned for several years.

The car charged with this task is the MINI Countryman WRC, which is being developed by Prodrive, in close cooperation with MINI, and is based on the production model.
