Everyone loves the Mini but not too many realise that this year it celebrates 55 years since its humble beginnings.
The Mini is the small car icon of the 1960s, it was produced by BMC (British Motor Corporation) starting with 1959 and was the first car to get the front-wheel-drive.

The new MINI was launched in 2001 and got to replace the legend with updates for the 21st Century.
