2019 is an extraordinary year for Mini. Sixty years ago, the original pocket city car, which was born as a whole brand, made its debut.
Its historical factory in Oxford, UK, produced its 10m cars in August. The vibrant carriage has begun to welcome its biggest fans.
Most appropriately, Milestone is a 60-year limited edition of the logo model. It is based on double-door Cooper, so its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine turbocharged to 192 horsepower. It receives several versions of specific touches, such as brown leather interior and green accent, a series of special decals and logos, plus a 17-inch alloy wheel for model design.
The 10m car made in Oxford is not destined to spend a lifetime in museums or private collections, at least not yet. As part of a 61-car fleet, it has been on its way, traveling 84 miles from the Oxford plant to Bristol for an International Conference on 11 August. The first minicar, a white Morris minicar, was at the front of the team. Next, an example is given each year during the unusually long production run of the model.
What a wonderful game it was. Between 1959 and 2000, there were 5.3 million original minicars, but not all of them were made in Oxford, and none of them were sold under the mini brand. BMW, the parent company, launched the first generation of Cooper (now the hard top) at the end of 2000 and the Mini as we know it.
Many of its predecessors have more than a dozen names, including Austin 7, Austin Mini, Innocenti Mini, Maurice 850, Riley Elf and Rover Mini.
We, F&S Always, look forward to witnessing with you our next decade, and are also committed to building a landmark brand in the field of auto parts products as famous as MINI .
