{{ $t('History') }}

The Mini is a two-door compact city car that was produced by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000.Its space-saving transverse engine and front-wheel drive layout – allowing 80% of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage – influenced a generation of car makers. The Mini Mk VI was introduced in 1990. The Mk VI was the sixth evolution of the Classic Mini. The Mk VI was largely similar to its predecessor, with minor changes under the body work such as repositioned body mounts and a new latch for the hood. While initially fitted with a 1.0L or 1.3L inline four, in 1991 the 1.0L unit was no longer available. The sixth generation of Mini also saw the reintroduction of the sport Cooper S variant. Production of the Mk VI Mini continued until 1995, when it was replaced by the Mini Mk VII.

{{ $t('What we should know') }}

These classic Minis are like nothing else on the road. They have immense charm and character, and a fabulous 'go-kart' feel to their classic, minimal design, both inside and out. The Mini starts first turn of the key, and the 1275cc fuel injected engine offers a lively responsiveness. It surges eagerly under acceleration, starts, stops and does what it should. This particular Mini drives very well in comparison to most of this age, it's one of the livelier 1275cc engines I've driven. The ride quality is 'unique' in any Mini, so expect an entertaining ride and an engaging driving experience without being reliant on modern tech such as power steering, electric windows, cruise control, heated seats or anything else to go wrong. Despite the basic quality of the design, these Minis are an absolute hoot to drive, and although the exterior appears very compact, the innovative designs means drivers of any size will fit. I'm 6'5" and fit comfortably with plenty of head room.
