Though the MINI has only been popular in the US for two decades, it holds a unique place in automotive history, as these facts below demonstrate:
- MINIs were designed in 1959 by engineer Alec Issigonis to counter Britain’s rising gasoline prices. Issigonis was later knighted by the Queen for his work on the economical car.
- The MINI’s distinctive design barely changed over 40 years following its initial introduction.
- The MINI has been a pop culture staple for decades — it has featured in films, fashion, and music videos. Generations of stars – from Paul McCartney to Geri Halliwell – have owned MINIs.
