The Mini is one of Britain’s most iconic automobiles, with a history that dates back to 1959 with the British Motor Corporation. Over the years, BMC and it’s various evolutions (British Leyland, Rover Group, etc.) were responsible for churning out the models, but in 2000, BMW bought the brand. Despite German ownership, Mini models are still produced in the U.K. by British workers, with roughly 200,000 units rolling off the line in Oxford every year. However, with the looming ramifications of the ongoing Brexit negotiations still in flux, that could change.
