The 1959 debut of famed designer Alec (later Sir Alec) Issigonis’ Mini rewrote the book on small cars. Barely 10 feet long, with a small but peppy transverse four-cylinder engine, 10-inch wheels and front-wheel drive, the Mini could carry up to four adults at 75 mph and achieve nearly 40 mpg. The car was a huge hit, and by the time production finally ended in 2000, nearly 5.5 million had sold. In testament to its groundbreaking nature, the Mini was voted the second most influential automobile of the 20th Century, behind only Henry Ford’s Model T. While initially intended as practical, economical transportation, the Mini, as massaged by famed race-car builder John Cooper, took the international racing world by storm by winning the Monte Carlo Rally from 1964 through 1967, in addition to countless circuit-racing victories. License-built versions of the mini were also produced in both Italy and Spain.
