A British icon first manufactured by the British Motor Corporation in 1959, the Mini was named ‘The Greatest Car of All Time’ (Autocar and Motor Magazine – 1991) and ‘Number One Classic Car of All Time’ (Classic and Sports Car Magazine – 1996). It became the first British car to sell one million units, and had manufactured 5,387,862 Minis by the year 2000 making it the most popular British car ever made. BMW bought the Rover Group, including the Mini, in 1994. Huge losses saw BMW sell most of the Rover Group’s brands, excluding the Mini, granting Rover permission to manufacture and sell the run-out Classic Seven, Classic Cooper, Classic Cooper Sport and Knightsbridge models as part of the deal. BMW has retained the ‘bulldog’ stance of the original in its own Mini models.
