G40 - Austin Mini - N Gauge

Details

Comes in kit form and requires painting.Introduced 1959.

Alec issigonis, the designor of the Morris Minor, was tempted back to BMC where he was asked to design a 'proper' small car. Issigonis beieved in front wheel drive and to get an existing engine into the smallest possible four setear he took the unusual step of turning it sideways. There were originally Austin and Morris versions of the new car (The Austin Se7en and the Morris Mini Minor) but by 1962 the Austin version became the Mini and by 1969 dual badging had been dropeed. It took some time for the design to catch on and the greatest annual production was not seen until more than ten yeras after its launch. By 1965 1 million had been produced and that figure eventually rose well above 5 million.
