Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Nec Show Star Driven -

The Mini was ground-break­ing as a peo­ple’s car; it is no co­in­ci­dence that within 15 years ev­ery one of BL’s com­peti­tors was us­ing a front-wheel drive, wa­ter-cooled trans­verse lay­out. That alone would make the Mini an in­ter­est­ing car, but that the Mini also man­ages to be a bet­ter sports car than most sports cars is truly re­mark­able. Add all of the charm of the car, as well as the huge sub-cul­ture sur­round­ing the Mini and it is not hard to see why this is such a pop­u­lar clas­sic – and one gain­ing in value fast. We can’t wait to see this one – and the 19 clas­sics it’ll be com­pet­ing against – wow­ing the vis­i­tors to the NEC’s halls this week­end.
