The Mini was originally sold as an Austin Mini and later a Morris Mini. Now the Mini is owned by BMW. The Mini has long been regarded as a part of 1960s British pop culture and has, over the years, featured in many British movies, noticeably The Italian Job (and its remake).
In Australia, the Mini made a name for itself as a Morris Mini-Minor and, after a 3-time Monte Carlo Rally winner in the 1960s, could also be seen on Australia’s famous Bathurst racetrack, sharing the road with much bigger opponents including the V8 muscle cars of the day.
Variations to the standard model included Mini Cooper and Cooper S, and more recently Clubman, Convertible, Countryman, Coupe, Hardtop, Roadster and Paceman.
Minis have a lot of fans globally, and Australia is no exception with Mini clubs in most states, some operating for around 60 years.
On the roads you will still see a wide variety of Minis from the early classics to the latest sports models that boast traits of the BMW brand.
