about:

The original Mini was debuted in 1959 and became an instant hit. Its popularity has granted him the several titles, as “Car of the Century”, “Number One Classic Car of All Time” and “European Car of the Century”, among others.

It all started with a fuel shortage in 1956, because of the crisis over the Suez Canal. With rationed petrol on the UK, the sales of larger cars plunged while the German miniature cars’ were growing.

Mini was the project 15 of Austin Drawing Office and was internally known as ADO15. The original version, two doors, was designed by Sir Alec Issigonis. The biggest innovation of the vehicle was the fact that despite its small size, 80% of the car’s floorpan could be used for passengers or luggage.

5,387,862 cars were produced all over the world: England, Australia, Spain, Belgium, Chile, Italy, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yugoslavia.
