When we think of automotive icons, the classic Mini is undoubtedly one of biggest, despite its miniscule size. Whether you’re into cars or not, the humble Mini is instantly recognisable thanks to its ground-breaking design; penned by legendary car designer Sir Alec Issigonis in the late ‘50s.
Fast forward to 2001 and the all-new MINI was introduced to the world. Now under the ownership of BMW, the rebranded MINI model was of course larger (as many new cars are) but it still kept many of the classic car’s quirks and features, such as razor-sharp handling and nippy performance. Since its rebirth, the new MINI has been extremely popular thanks to mimicking the original with its go-kart like handling and its bespoke customisation possibilities. The icon’s legacy continues.
