2. Mini Cooper (1959 – Present)
Another legend of the British automotive industry is the appropriately named Mini Cooper. The British Motor Corporation originally created it in the late 1950s as a necessarily small car, because of the petrol rationing and fuel shortages at the time.
Due to its size and the lack of heavy materials, it was a surprisingly agile vehicle. It is famously shown in the movie The Italian Job. In the film, several Minis are involved in a major gold heist. They masterfully evade the police due to their versatility.
Rowan Atkinson’s legendary character, Mr. Bean, is famous for his trusty yellow Mini, which shared many of his hardships.
