|The Mini began its public life on the 26th of August 1959. At that time, Sir Alec Issigonis could not have even dreamed of the importance his little car would play in the history of the motorcar. The Mini was designed simply to be an affordable car which could seat four adults and still be small enough to cope with the increasing numbers of cars on the road. Costing just under £500 and initially only available with a 850cc 34bhp engine, this was the Mini in its purest form, a far cry of things to come in the next few years.
There are new and used Mini dealers located in Melbourne , Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Hobart, Canberra (most suburbs) and regional Australia. Most dealers also deal some other make at the same dealer. Few dealers offer a worthwhile Car Insurance for your Mini, however.
