A Mini Adventure - The Iconic Small Car


The modern-day Mini may bear little mechanical resemblance to the classic British car to which it owes its name. Nonetheless, now over half a century since Sir Alec Issigonis’s original conception, the Mini remains a towering icon in Britain’s post-war social history.

From those with fond memories of this most diminutive vehicle, to those whose only acquaintance is with the modern BMW model’s entertainingly short ‘Mini Adventures’ on TV, this book promises to captivate all who read it.

With A Mini Adventure, Martin Wainwright presents a 224 page biography of breadth and humour, celebrating this classic car. Here is everything from Sir Alec Issigonis’s original conception of the car to its rebirth as a badge-engineered BMW.
