Following its launch in 1959 the classic Mini was soon on its way to becoming a global icon especially after partnering with Cooper in the early 60’s to develop the fabled Cooper & Cooper S variants. Not long after the Cooper S’s release it was entered in the Monte Carlo Rallye which sensationally it won in 1964 & 65. Production of the classic Mini continued until 2000 when the last one rolled off the production line however this was swiftly followed by the new generation BMW Mini which launched in the same year. Scorpion have been producing performance exhausts for the classic and new generation Mini’s for over 30 years, so it was natural that we became chief technical partner with the increasingly popular Mini Challenge race series ensuring true track to road technology transfer for our products.
Our leading technicians have developed through rigorous trial and testing a 63.5mm/2.5” cat-back system for the MINI Countryman All4. Fabricated using premium high thermal tolerance T304 motorsport grade stainless steel tube that will endure through the harshest of conditions.
We use CNC Mandrel bending technology to shape our pipework. This often results in our exhausts providing a sharper throttle response and a measurable increase in BHP. Our manufacturing process also yields weight-saving gains when compared to the OE system. With all these improvements packed into our exhausts, it’s no-wonder that upgrading with Scorpion has been described as taking 'the driving experience to the next level'.
We’re offering the cat-back system as non-resonated only, thanks to our road-testing programme we’ve concluded that our non-res system provides an excellent sporty soundtrack without droning. Overall, the Paceman’s Scorpion soundtrack is best described as characterful and raspy when putting one’s foot down but pleasant at those all-important cruising speeds.
To compliment the Countryman's aesthetics, we’re offering our signature range of Scorpion tailpipes which are instantly recognisable due to their popularity with performance enthusiasts worldwide. Maintaining Scorpion’s unwavering standard of build-quality and providing drivers the option to tailor their cars aesthetics to suit individual taste, depending on the cars model and manufacturer. Drivers can choose from polished Daytona, black ceramic Daytona or Ascari carbon tailpipes which have been the main choice of the MINI Challenge UK series Safety car.
