The Mini was a triumph of design by Alec Issigonis who produced a thoroughly driveable and likeable economy car. The neat styling immediately gave it more character than any other economy car of the time. Under BMC's badge engineering system the original Morris Mini Minor became an Austin Seven and with a boot became the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet.
