"Happy 50th anniversary, Mini! Celebrate the occasion with this lavish tribute to the most innovative, fun-filled, and spectacularly successful British car ever built. This delightful volume tells the story of the Mini’s development, from the first vehicle ever produced in 1959 right up to BMW’s contemporary model, and explains the little auto’s enduring appeal.
