BEX CELEBRATES WITH PADDY HOPKIRK & JOHN COOPER
Forever Young, the Swinging 60’s British classic, The Mini, celebrates it’s 60th anniversary in 2019! Who’d believe it?
Time to forget Brexit and let’s go back to the heady days of 1959!!
The days when Alex Issigonis, the head of design at the British Motor Corporation (BMC), proudly revealed his creation- a car that captured the imagination of the world and revolutionised driving from conventional to fun.
The Mini was an instant hit with the ‘Royals’ then the paparazzi had a field day, with celebs like Paul McCartney, Steve McQueen, Enzo Ferrari & Peter Sellers vying for media attention but that wasn’t enough, as the Mini itself became the Star.
Films quickly followed starting with the Mini in the Pink Panther and The Italian Job.
Meanwhile, John Cooper and Paddy Hopkirk proved this creation could ‘fly’ winning race after race. A fashion Icon with Race and Rally pedigree, everyone wanted one.
Six decades later, this Iconic Legend lives on.
Who hasn’t owned and loved a Mini at some time in their lives?
