BMW MINI pays homage to the small brand your group has given so much joy since I acquired it in 2001 and gave him a new youth. But is that MINI is much more than a small car, is a cultural icon. It began in England in the 60s where he took fame thanks to its small size, distribution of space and agility so characteristic. Three facets that have managed to stay until our times thanks to MINI Story BMW, who took these ideas and has implemented very well under the slogan “Go kart felling”.
Now, with the new 2015 so close and which comply MINI 55 years, BMW presents under the title “The MINI History” an exhibition to mark on your MINI Story BMW Museum in Munich, open to the public from November 27 this year and will remain permanently until January 31, 2016.
