Officially the best selling British car ever built, the classic Mini rolled off production lines between 1959 and 2000 and can count some of the most iconic cars ever built among the many variants that were produced in that time.
Turning economy, space saving and doing more with less into an art form, the Mini was a revolution in car design that saw the wheels pushed to the corners to maximize internal space and front wheel drive become a normal part of the motoring landscape. Long before the car became a by-word for Cool Britannia in the 60s it was democratizing access to low cost, well built cars with good performance and practical space – ensuring it would be a classic long before it gained that iconic status.
While the Mini may be better known for its cultural impact in the modern era, one of the biggest reasons behind its enduring success was its engineering and performance which still make it a sought after vehicle even today. Its simple design and light weight made it exceptionally fun to drive, with handling that is considered excellent today but was almost unbelievable at the time, while it also had low fuel consumption and was easy and cheap to modify – something that kick-started many an obsession with car ownership and modification in a generation that had never owned cars before.
At Carrosserie we are intimately familiar with every one of the many Mini variants on the road today, including some of the more exotic and rare kinds, and we are committed to treating this heritage marque with the respect and care it deserves. Spanning nearly 40 years of change and improvement, we have the skills and diligence required to work on any model or age of Mini, from minor body repairs to a total nut and bolt re-build, using techniques and methodologies that would have made the original designers proud.
