HISTORY
The original Mini is considered an icon of 1960s British popular culture. Its space-saving transverse engine, front-wheel drive layout Ė allowed 80 percent of the area of the cars floor pan to be used for passengers and luggage. In 1999, the Mini was voted the second-most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T, and ahead of the CitroŽn DS and Volkswagen Beetle.It was manufactured by the English-based British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000 when BMW took it over and it lost its charm.
The vehicle was a special edition of the Mini 1000 in homage to John Cooper the innovative racing car engineer who first put an engine in the rear of a racing car, was renowned for his championship Formula 1 cars in the late 50s early 60s and his innovative work with BMC to produce the Mini Cooper.
