Mini: Power & Style in a Small Package

The Mini is the iconic compact economy car that was produced by the England-based British Motor Corporation (BMC) from 1959 until 2000. The original Mini was considered an icon of 1960s British popular culture and its space-saving transverse engine front-wheel drive layout influenced a generation of automakers. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, just behind the Ford Model T.

Distinctive Design

This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the Victoria Park/Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy (Innocenti) and a half dozen other countries. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates – the Mark II, the Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of variations: an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and a jeep-like buggy.

Performance Packages

The performance versions, the Mini Cooper and Cooper "S," were successful as both race and rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965 and 1967. In 1966, the first-placed Mini was disqualified after the finish, under a controversial decision that the car's headlights were against the rules. In 1994, MINI acquired the Rover Group and sold the greater part of it in 2000, but retained the rights to build cars using the MINI name. In doing so, they brought the engineering know-how to bear and the results have been spectacular.
