About the real-life vehicle the Mini 4WD car is based on Edit

Released in September 1982, the City Turbo is the high-end variant of the Honda City (AA model). It sports the more sportier design, with the additional air dam and the fog headlamps added to the car.

It was powered by the modified, 1.2 liter inline-4 Honda ER turbocharged engine that can produces about 100 PS (99 bhp) at 5,500 rpm and 108.5 lb·ft (147.1 N·m) of torque at 3,000 rpm. The engine has the PGM-FI fuel injection system and the 8-bit digital computer control unit, results in a more efficient engine with less turbo lag. It was mated to either the 4 or 5-speed manual transmissions, a 4+3-speed Hypershift automatic transmission or a Hondamatic automatic transmission with 2-speed plus overdrive, which then transfer the torque to the front wheels.

Compare to the normal City, the City Turbo has the more refined chassis structure. The four-wheel independent suspension system used the progressive rate coil springs, with stabilizers equipped into both front and rear wheels. Braking power is provide by the front ventilated disc brakes and the rear semi-metallic shoe drum brakes.
