The Mini first saw the light of day in 1959, in the wake of the Suez Crisis oil shortage. The clever use of space, a relatively economical engine and engaging driving style led to it becoming an automotive legend over its forty year production history. We look at the development of the Mini, examine the major models and trace the origins, design and reception of the new ‘BMW’ Mini.
