Yeah, indeed, new Minis lack in charisma of classic ones. And I suppose that's because current Coopers are built in Germany. Well, sorry Fangio, but I think New Minis would be more impressive if they still were manufactured in the UK.

8 years on I know, but knew minis have always been manufactured in the UK, Oxford. Apart from irregular mods e.g. Clubman, Countryman.

I love this little thing!
Looks so fun to drive and looks cool!

It is a pity the new Minis lost what the old Mini had.

I had one from new. Cornered on rails. Stopped by the police, the cop said I can't give you a ticket for speeding because you were so fast through the corners I couldn't keep up with you.

I love those old school Minis, they're among the greatest cars ever made. They have rubber cone suspensions, they're as tough as all get out, only 10' long, yet seat 4 adults, and in Racing, they danced around larger, more powerful cars through the turns.

This is probably the greatest car ever made. ( or maybe jag e type, golf gti mk1, Ferrari 250 gto.)

The Italian Job star. I think this is the best Mini that ever made due to it's size and responsive handling and performance
