The MINI is ingrained in British culture and even though it is now owned by BMW its spirit remains British through and through.

The MINI is ingrained in British culture and even though it is now owned by BMW its spirit remains British through and through. BMW have taken this motoring icon of the last four decades and transformed it into the most advanced and entertaining car of its size on the market.

Since its launch in 2001, the MINI adventure shows no sign of slowing down and with the introduction of the Convertible model in July 2004 you can now enjoy the MINI experience topless.

Statistically, only two in every 100,000 MINIs built could be exactly the same. This figure is reached based on the variety of interiors, exteriors and options that can be specified on a MINI. As MINI UK registered its 100,000th MINI in April 2004, it is quite possible that only two cars in the whole of the UK are exactly the same, such is the choice offered to MINI customers. We do wonder if some owners are worried about future re-sale values with over the top customisation.

The MINI Convertible is available in three variants, MINI One Convertible and MINI Cooper Convertible and MINI Cooper S Convertible. All three models are built at the Oxford based plant alongside the four existing models that have already proved to be big hits worldwide the MINI One, MINI One D, MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S.
