Mini has gone beyond its racing cars roots, to become an icon of a generation. Former race car forever associated with the 1960s and icons like John Lennon and, more recently, the charming Prince Harry. As an iconic vehicle, it also plays a role in the takeover and updating of the brand within the BMW over the past decade. Variations on the Cooper and Cooper S followed suit with successes such as Mini Hatch.
After re-introduction of Mini back in 2001 by BMW, classic car has undergone a transformation that struck the the minds of Mini fans, while maintaining its status as a cult icon – the happiness caused by iconic grille and headlamps which didn’t change, but the new model of Mini is revamped with 200 horsepower replacing 34 horsepower of Mini Cooper 1960 first original.
The original Mini was developed in 1950 by the BMC in collaboration with the designer Sir Alex Issigonis.
