The Mini is the motoring world’s biggest social climber. From its humble beginnings, it has risen the ranks and commands a position on the ladder of classic car ownership far beyond that which could have been imagined in 1959 when it was launched.
Motoring presenter, Paul Woodford continues his series of classic motoring films with classicsdriven.co.uk and Great Escape Cars, and explores the secret behind the success of one of motoring’s biggest icons.
