The partnership between MINI Motorsport and the X-RAID rally team continues in 2020 with a new MINI Countryman model. According to a press release issued today, X-RAID is offering a special off-road package for the MINI Countryman. First off, the off-road package increases the ground clearance up to four centimeters. The increase of ground clearance is achieved through a combination of a two-centimeters aluminum body lift kit and larger rims and tires combination.

The more robust wheels, together with tire with a higher sidewall, are the result of the Dakar Rally experience and they can help avoid tire damage. Furthermore, a wheels ring is used and therefore it is not necessary to replace the complete wheel in case of having a damage. At the same time, this also makes it possible to conceal the height of the tires.

Next on the list is a a design package to complete the off-road feel consisting of MINI Piano Black elements and orange X-raid design accents. Additional LED headlights allow better vision in the dark on rough terrain.

The MINI Countryman by X-RAID also gets a lightweight, aluminum roof rack to ensure there is space for everything you need on an escape from the daily grind. The whole package, or individual elements, can be requested at




The MINI Countryman was again part of the X-raid team for the 2020 Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia, where it was witness to victory number five for the X-raid team and a maiden Dakar success for the MINI JCW Buggy.
