The New Mini Book
Since its launch in 2001, the New Mini has been a spectacular sales success in all its major markets, particularly in the UK and USA, and during 2004 the 500,000th example rolled off the production line. The New Mini was possibly the most eagerly awaited new car ever, and with styling reminiscent of the original 'classic' Mini, coupled with BMW's engineering expertise, the car has carved out its own identity in a marketplace full of increasingly bland small hatchbacks. The New Mini still turns heads, and has inspired a burgeoning aftermarket accessory and tuning industry.
This fascinating and informative book, written by self-confessed Mini fan Tim Mundy, shows you the New Mini's roots, charts its development, and provides useful advice on how to choose and buy an example for yourself. There's also plenty of invaluable practical information on how to keep a New Mini in top form, as well as engine tuning, performance upgrades and cosmetic modifications. Essential reading for all owners and enthusiasts of this stylish modern-day classic.
