Introduced in 1959, the BMC Mini set new standards in small car design and in the process became an automotive icon. This new book takes an affectionate look back at the original Mini's 40-year production run, during which time more than 5 million cars were built. While there is brief coverage of the new Mini scheduled for 2001 launch under the auspices of BMW, this illustrated history focuses on the reputations for safety, performance and cheeky good looks enjoyed of the original.
