Mini Cooper (1959-2020)
The Austin Mini. A little car with a big heart and a huge history; an icon of the sixties, an icon of the British motor industry, an icon of….well, of all things iconic.
BMW acquired the Rover Group (formerly British Leyland) in 1994, and sold the greater part of it in 2000, but retained the rights to build cars using the Mini name. Retrospectively, the car is known as the “Classic Mini” to distinguish it from the modern, BMW influenced MINI family of vehicles produced since 2000.
