BMW Mini North Derbyshire
The Mini brand has been under the secure ownership of BMW for a while now; they have been producing the latest Mini since 2001. Originally it was released as a 3 door hatchback but, over the years more models have been introduced, a convertible, Clubman and Countryman.
The original Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation and designed by Frank Stephenson; it was manufactured from 1959 to 2000. The current Mini takes a lot of inspiration from the original.
After the selloff of Rover in 2000 BMW decided to build the new mini on its own and moved production from the Longbridge plant to its Oxford plant in Cowley.
The styling of the new Mini, is a retro design that is deliberately reminiscent of the original Mini. The retro styling is further enhanced by retaining classic Mini touches such as contrasting roof colours, optional bonnet stripes, optional rally lights, and black trim around the wheel arches and rocker panels that mimic the wide wheel flares found on many classic Minis.
In 2005 Mini introduced a convertible model, available in One, Cooper and Cooper S versions. Its unique feature was the electric roof, a novelty for cars in its class.
The 2nd generation Mini was introduced in 2007; it is built on a re-engineered platform that incorporated many stylistic and engineering changes. The engine architecture is shared with PSA Peugeot Citroen and is intended to be more cost-effective and fuel-efficient.
