The Mini is a compact, two-door, four-seat automobile developed as the ADO15 and manufactured from 1959 to 2000 by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors.
Except for a brief break, the first generation of Minis was produced for four decades and sold for six, from the final year of the 1950s to the final year of the 20th century. They were available as fastbacks, estates, and convertibles.
The Italian edition of the Mini, marketed under the Innocenti marque, was manufactured in Lambrate, a Milan district.
The Mini Mark I was updated three times in the United Kingdom: Mark II, Clubman, and Mark III. There were several variations, such as an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van, and a Mini Moke, a jeep-like buggy.
Mini Cooper and Cooper “S” performance versions were race and rally cars that won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965, and 1967. BMW purchased Rover Group (previously British Leyland) in 1994 and sold a majority stake in the company in 2000 but retained the right to manufacture cars under the Mini brand. In retrospect, the car is referred to as a “Classic Mini” to differentiate it from the modern, BMW-influenced MINI family of cars produced since 2000.
