Production of this model commenced in July and concluded in October with an approximate total of vehicles produced. Throughout the s and s the British market received numerous "special editions" of the Mini, which shifted the car from a mass-market item into a fashionable icon.

It was even more popular in Japan, which took the lion's share of the circa 40, Minis produced annually in the early s.

In , under Bernd Pischetsrieder , a first cousin once removed of Issigonis, BMW took control of the Rover Group, which included the Mini, fitting an airbag to comply with European legislation.

By March , Rover was still suffering massive losses, and BMW decided to dispose of most of the companies. The sell-off was completed in May that year.

BMW retained the Mini name and the planned new model, granting Rover temporary rights to the brand and allowing it to manufacture and sell the run-out model of the old Mini.

Mini Hatch , the new model made by BMW, is technically unrelated to the old car but retains the classic transverse four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive configuration and "bulldog" stance of the original.

The last Mini to leave the Longbridge plant did so in , when a s GT which was used by staff to travel around the car plant was recovered from the disused tunnels under the plant.

The car was damaged by a storage container falling on it and had been left without an engine or gearbox for around 30 years before being recovered during work to infill the tunnels.

From the Mark IV onward, many special limited-production editions of the Mini were offered. These included models that were created to commemorate racing victories or to celebrate an anniversary of the Mini marque.

Limited editions generally came equipped with a unique combination of interior and exterior trim and special decals. There was also a version inspired by The Italian Job , a film famous for having a trio of Minis in its epic closing car chase.

From to , Issigonis had been designing a replacement for the Mini in the form of an experimental model called the 9X.

A number of prototypes produced for vehicles based on the Mini but which never saw production are held and sometimes displayed at the British Heritage Motor Centre museum at Gaydon , Warwickshire.

These included the Twini, a re-engineered four-wheel-drive Moke with two engines—one at the front and another at the back; the Austin Ant , a second attempt to produce a four-wheel-drive vehicle, this time using a transfer case ; and a two-seater convertible MG edition of the Mini, cancelled due to it being perceived as competition for the MG Midget.

In , a project considering possible improvements to the Mini was started. Codenamed Minki "Mini" plus K-Series engine , it included a redesigned dashboard, a two-piece rear door or tailgate instead of a boot, fold down rear seats, Hydragas suspension and a 3-cylinder version of the K-Series engine with a 5-speed gearbox.

In the idea to update the Mini again surfaced but this time with BMW management. As part of the process of deciding how to replace the Mini, a vehicle representing what the current Mini could have become, if it had been developed further over its production history, was commissioned.

The car had to be widened by 50mm and lengthened by 50mm to accommodate the new engine and gearbox, with Hydragas suspension and dashboard from a Rover The Minki-II was used for Hydragas development work, this suspension being considered at the time for the R59 project, later to become the Mini Hatch.

The cheapness and availability of used Minis make it a candidate for body replacement. There are over Mini-based kit cars from various small companies and individual enthusiasts.

BMC operated a Competition Department at Abingdon , Oxfordshire, under the control of Stuart Turner, which built specially prepared Minis mostly based on Cooper and Cooper S versions to compete in international rallies and other motorsport.

This department played a key role in ensuring the Mini's huge success in motorsport throughout the s, in particular, winning the Monte Carlo Rally in , and , the Lakes Rally in , and , and dominating all of the first 9 positions in the Gallaher at Bathurst.

The car also won the , , , and British Saloon Car Championship season , as well as the British Rally Championship in , and , the European Rally Championship in and , and won the Finnish Rally Championship in and The Cooper S also had some success in the European Touring Car Championship , winning in and , the Guia Race of Macau a finish in , a 1—2 finish in and a win in , and the Australian Touring Car Championship , winning its class in , , , , and A further title was the Sun-7 Chesterfield Series.

The Mini also achieved class wins at the Armstrong , repeating this feat every year until , and having class wins at the , and Sandown , and Six Hour Le Mans in , , , , , , , and , as well as the Phillip Island K.

Mini Leyland came 4th place in the underlitre category in the , and Trans-Am seasons , improving to 3rd in The disqualification related to the use of a variable resistance headlamp dimming circuit in place of a dual-filament lamp.

The car competed as late as the Australian Rallycross Championship. The Se7ens is the UK's longest running one make motor racing championship, having been introduced in In a Mini broke the land speed record.

The Mini has won many awards over the years, including second place in 's "Global" Car of the Century award, behind only the Model T Ford.

Grassroots Motorsports awarded Mini with the Editors' Choice award in At its peak, the Mini was a strong seller in most of the countries where it was sold, with the United Kingdom inevitably receiving the highest volumes.

The 1,,th Mini came off the production line in , [89] with the 2,,th in It dominated the mini-car market until the arrival of the Hillman Imp in It outsold the Imp.

Competition arrived with the more modern and practical Vauxhall Chevette of , but the Mini continued to sell well until its "replacement"—the Metro —arrived in By this time, the Mini's design had been overtaken by numerous more modern and practical vehicles.

Although the Metro did not replace the Mini, production figures for the Mini dipped during the s, and interest in the design was not revived until the reintroduction of the Mini Cooper in This helped sales of the Mini through the s, to the end of production on 4 October A total of 1,, Minis were sold in Britain after its launch in The last new one to be registered was sold in , some four years after the end of production.

Sales were discontinued when stricter federal safety standards were imposed in [94] [95] [96] [97] [98] and the arrival of the larger and more profitable Austin America.

Mini sales fell in the calendar year and the US importer was expecting the forthcoming Austin America to find a larger market.

The America was also withdrawn in due to slow sales and the introduction of bumper-height standards. Mini sales continued in Canada until Leyland Minis also were subject to stricter government regulation with high bumpers, large turn indicators, warning buzzers and lights for seat belts and also a fitting of air pollution pumps which required a specially designed radiator.

Today the U. Government exempts cars older than 25 years from all import laws , so older Minis can be freely imported.

The Canadian government applies a similar rule after 15 years. Issigonis designed the Mini with an emphasis on active safety. Asked about the crashworthiness of the Mini, he said: "I make my cars with such good brakes, such good steering, that if people get into a crash it's their own fault" [99] and "I don't design my cars to have accidents".

In July BMC announced that following "comments by safety experts" about the Mini's external doorhandles, these would be modified on new cars so that the gap between the handle and the door panel would be effectively closed.

Nicholas Faith states in his book that Murray Mackay , one of the UK's leading motor vehicle crash and safety researchers, was critical of the pre Mini's passive safety features, including the protruding filler cap, the door latch, and the vulnerability of the passenger space to engine intrusion.

The Mini was withdrawn from the American market because it could not meet the U. The Mini was modified during its production to improve its safety.

It featured a longer crumple zone , a "pedestrian friendly" front-end, run-flat tyres, strengthened door sills, extra internal padding and recessed door handles, the latter having been used earlier on Australian-built Minis owing to local laws.

In January Which? Several key events marked the 50th anniversary of the Mini in Between 7 and 10 August approximately minis from around the world congregated at Longbridge Birmingham to celebrate the 50th anniversary.

The smaller engine model was not well received and only were built with cc engines until the model was discontinued in April The Cooper S version was also used by some British police departments and the Australian Traffic police as a plainclothes car.

The suspension in all UK models was replaced by a Hydrolastic system in The new suspension created a softer ride, but it also increased weight and production cost; in the original rubber suspension reappeared except on GT, Clubman and Cooper S models.

Many other production changes occurred over the life of the Mark I Mini. The new model featured redesigned doors with conventional interior handles and wind up windows with quarter vents , hydrolastic suspension, key operated starter, a remote gearshift mechanism like the Cooper and the engine was upgraded to the cc version.

Production of the round-nosed mini in Australia halted in with the release of the new Mini Clubman. The Australian Mini Clubman utilised the same locally designed wind up windows and exterior door hinges as the Morris Mini Deluxe.

The Australian Mini had wind up windows many years before their British counterparts. Certain components fitted to Mark I cars were stamped with the date on which they were made.

These dates can be useful for working out the age of a specific car, or for judging how original it is.

Production of the Clubman and GT got off to a slow start because the cars incorporated "lots of production changes" including the relocation of tooling from the manufacturer's Cowley plant to the Longbridge plant : very few cars were handed over to customers before the early months of Early domestic market Clubmans were still delivered on cross-ply tyres despite the fact that by radials had become the norm for the car's mainstream competitors.

The official name was always just the "Mini GT", and it was a separate, distinct model from the Clubman although it shared the same frontal treatment as the Mini Clubman, and was launched at the same time.

Innocenti in Italy, however, continued making their own version of the Mini Cooper for some time. It was the first Mini to be equipped with a tachometer.

It also featured a standard-fit close-ratio gearbox, and initially had inch Throughout the s, British Leyland continued to produce the classic "round-front" design, alongside the newer Clubman and GT models.

The long-nose Clubman and GT offered better crash safety, were better equipped, and had better under-bonnet access, but they were more expensive and aerodynamically inferior to the original design.

The Mini Clubman and GT were replaced in by the new hatchback Austin Metro, while production of the original "round-front" Mini design continued for another 20 years.

For the Australian market, all Minis including the Van gained the Clubman front in although the car was still basically a Mk I behind the A-Pillar.

Australian Clubman saloons were marketed under the Morris Mini Clubman name when introduced in August , [69] and as the Leyland Mini , without the Clubman name, from February To end Mini production in Australia, a limited-edition runout model was produced — the LS.

Production of this model commenced in July and concluded in October with an approximate total of vehicles produced. Throughout the s and s the British market received numerous "special editions" of the Mini, which shifted the car from a mass-market item into a fashionable icon.

The proposed engine size was originally cc as used in the Morris Minor and Austin A Issigonis' suspension featured the use of rubber cones as springs: the spring rate of rubber changes with compression, allowing the suspension to adapt to passenger load variations a full passenger load could actually double the tiny vehicle's gross weight.

A conventional suspension would have required an increase in height to the design. This unique design was adapted from Issigonis's home-built racer and built for the Mini by Alex Moulton.

The Mini was a genuine four seater. This was possible within such a small bodyshell because the engine was mounted transversely, driving the front wheels via a gearbox which was uniquely incorporated into the sump of the engine.

Engine and gearbox thus shared the same oil, which was a significant piece of design in response to the Suez crisis and the fears of future oil shortages.

The overall width of the vehicle was reduced, because there was no need to accommodate a separate gearbox across the width of the car and because there was no transmission tunnel in the floorplan of the Mini, there was more space that could be used to accommodate the passengers thus compensating for the reduced width.

Overall length was minimized because of the Mini's two-box design, comprising only a passenger compartment and the engine compartment.

There was no third box providing a separate luggage compartment i. To offset that problem, large bins beside each of the four seats provided some useful interior storage and a centrally located instrument binnacle allowed the dashboard to be opened up for storage too.

The requirement for storage bins in the front doors effectively determined that the Mini should have sliding windows rather than wind-up windows.

Overall the Mini represents some very clever packaging which has often been imitated but has never been bettered [ citation needed ].

An Austin de luxe saloon was tested by the British magazine The Motor in It had a top speed of A fuel consumption of Issigonis' friend John Cooper , owner of the Cooper Car Company and Formula One Manufacturers Champion in and , saw the potential of the little car, and after some experimentation and testing, the two men collaborated to create a nimble, economical, and inexpensive car.

By the time production of the Cooper model ended in , 12, of these popular cars had been sold to the public. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the "S", was developed in tandem and released in The smaller engine model was not well received and only were built with cc engines until the model was discontinued in April The Cooper S version was also used by some British police departments and the Australian Traffic police as a plainclothes car.

The suspension in all UK models was replaced by a Hydrolastic system in The new suspension created a softer ride, but it also increased weight and production cost; in the original rubber suspension reappeared except on GT, Clubman and Cooper S models.

Many other production changes occurred over the life of the Mark I Mini. The new model featured redesigned doors with conventional interior handles and wind up windows with quarter vents , hydrolastic suspension, key operated starter, a remote gearshift mechanism like the Cooper and the engine was upgraded to the cc version.

Production of the round-nosed mini in Australia halted in with the release of the new Mini Clubman. The Australian Mini Clubman utilised the same locally designed wind up windows and exterior door hinges as the Morris Mini Deluxe.

The Australian Mini had wind up windows many years before their British counterparts. Certain components fitted to Mark I cars were stamped with the date on which they were made.

These dates can be useful for working out the age of a specific car, or for judging how original it is. The following components are known to be date stamped in this manner:.
