The best-loved of all British cars, the Mini was a revolution when it came out in 1959. This album looks at the background to the Mini, details its design and development, and chronicles the evolution of the car over the years. It also looks at attempts to design a replacement for the Mini, and - bringing the story fully up to date - examines the car's twilight years, through to the end of manufacture in 2000. About the author Jon Pressnell is a freelance journalist specialising in classic cars and is a Senior Contributor to Classic and Sports Car magazine. He has a particular interest in the British Motor Industry and has carried out pioneering research on various aspects of the work of the Mini's creator, Sir Alec Issigonis.Original Mini-Cooper and Cooper S.
