The Mini was originally developed in the late 1950’s in response to the successful launch of the Fiat 500 compact car, as the need for fuel efficient vehicles became necessary in the UK after the 1956 Suez Crisis resulted in a fuel shortage.
The Mini Cooper was produced by the English company British Motor Corporation until 2000, and is an icon of 1960’s popular British Culture. The car was so popular that the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century behind only the Ford Model T.
Minis have a well-earned reputation for being both cool and cute, simple and sturdy. Staying true to their roots they have maintained a style of affordability, durability and comfort that appeals to a wide range of customers.
Competitors over the years have tried but none have managed to replicate the inimitable design and appeal of the Mini, as this amazing compact car has withstood the test of time for over half a century.
