MINI has celebrated its 60th Birthday with the production of the 10 millionth MINI.
In August 1959, the most famous of all small cars was launched as the Morris Mini Minor and the Austin Seven.Then, two years later, 1961 saw the vehicle renamed to Austin Mini and, eight years after that, MINI became a marque in its own right.
To celebrate the milestones, MINI held an event held at its UK’s production facility in Oxford, bringing one car from each year of production.
Plant Oxford was the original UK production facility for the original MINI, where it was built from 1959-1968, before production moved to Longbridge. The very first 1959 example off the production line was registered as 621 AO. The 10 millionth MINI will join BMW’s heritage fleet, rather than being sold.
Production of the BMW owned Oxford plant has now risen from 300 cars per day in 2011,to around 1,000 today, with a new model driving off the production line every 67 seconds.
