VANGUARDS MINI 1275GT WHITE 4M MINI


VANGUARDS MINI 1275GT WHITE 4MILLION MINI

The Mini passed the production milestone of four million examples in late November 1976 and was the first British built car to do so. British Leyland never missed a publicity opportunity so made sure the four millionth was a 1275GT, the top model at that time. They also issued press releases and pictures featuring Miss Great Britain 1975, Mini-owner Sue Cuff, driving the '4,000,000th MINI' liveried 1275GT off the production line at Longbridge. Miss Cuff was then photographed sitting on its bonnet but the photographers wanted to see her in a miniskirt, a garment out of fashion by 1976, so Miss Cuff obligingly cut down one of her own skirts!

When this milestone was reached the Mini was still the UK's third biggest selling car; over 75,000 had been sold in 1976 alone. BL hoped their dominance in this sector would continue and their investment in a new model, design project ADO88 then known as the 'Mighty Mini' and eventually released in 1980 as the Metro, was announced the following week. The original Mini was launched in 1959 although only 19,749 cars were built that year. Thereafter manufacturing numbers rose consistently and hit a high in 1971 when a total of 318,475 were made. The Mini remained in production for forty one years and, although annual output reduced in later years, a total of 5,387,862 were made before production ceased in 2000.
