Happy 50th anniversary, Mini! Celebrate the occasion with this lavish tribute to the most innovative, fun-filled, and spectacularly successful British car ever built. This delightful volume tells the story of the Mini’s development, from the first vehicle ever produced in 1959 right up to BMW’s contemporary model, and explains the little auto’s enduring appeal. You’ll see why no other small car ever came close: it inspired artists, starred in films, won numerous racing trophies—and the hearts of many.
With both original and contemporary photographs, and tales of the famous (and infamous) Mini owners, this is the book that every car enthusiast is waiting for!
