A MINI HISTORY | MINI DEALERSHIP NEAR WICHITA KS

The First Mini is Launched.
Alec Issigoniswas challenged to design and build a small, fuel-efficient car capable of carrying four adults, within economic reach of just about everyone.

A Racing Legend is Born.
The humble little people-mover fell into the hands of British racing legend John Cooper. A more powerful engine, bigger brakes and a few tuning tweaks later, the Classic Mini Cooper 997 was introduced. And a rally demon was born.

Over 2 Million Sold Around the World.
Pickup and station wagon versions were introduced and all were incredibly durable - whether rallying or doing the daily errands. Owners knew they could depend on their Mini to get the job done. And inspire smiles the entire time.

The Next Evolution.
In October of 1999, just a few days before the final Classic Mini rolled off the production line, the concept for a new MINI is unveiled at the Paris Auto Show. The distinctive design and personality is immediately recognizable. But it's clear that the new model has also taken a healthy dose of automotive steroids.

A New Era.
Since the Hardtop burst onto US roadways in 2002, the public's appetite for MINI has grown along with the MINI lineup. The expanding family includes available ALL4 all-wheel drive, three models with more seating and four doors, spirited two-seaters, topless motoring - and a new era of sophisticated technology and high-end interiors.
