The Mini was a triumph of design by Alec Issigonis who produced a thoroughly drivable 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 Se7en and with a boot became the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet. It always had a strong sales basis.
