The Mini is an iconic small car produced by BMC British Motoring Corporation and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original Mini is the most popular British car ever made. It was superseded by the New Mini or MINI launched in 2001. The original Mini design was very innovative, allowing its space-saving front-wheel-drive layout to generate 80 per cent of the area of the car's floorpan for passengers and luggage. From 1961 the sporty Mini Cooper was produced plus a more powerful version, the Mini Cooper S, in 1963 - enhancing the Minis status as a vehicle of cool. The car was such a success that it remained relatively unchanged stylistically over the years even until the modern Mini was launched in 2000 under the new ownership of BMW. The modern range are technically unrelated to the old cars although produced with much better performance and interior spec.; although, they do retain the classic transverse 4 cylinder, front-wheel-drive configuration. The Modern Cooper S, in particular has continued the style success of the original, helped with a major marketing campaign which included the 2003 film remake version of the Italian Job.
