Used MINI for Sale

There have been Used MINI for Sale in South Africa since the 1960’s, but since 2000 MINI has been owned by BMW. During this time BMW has helped to revitalize the brand, and taken it from a popular British brand that was iconic in the 1960’s and in movies such as the Italian Job starring Michael Caine to the top of the small luxury market.

The History of the MINI

Since its launch in 1959 there has been a new MINI model continuously available until today. Below is a list of the previous generations of MINI Cars, many of which are still seen on the road today. Some are collectors pieces, such as the Austin MINI and the Morris MINI, while other later pre-2000 MINI models can sometimes be seen on our showroom floors on the odd occasion that they become available as Used MINI for Sale. The MINI brand has always had a story to tell, and this can be seen in the following generations of vehicles:

  • Mini Mark I (1959 to 1967)
  • Mini Mark II (1967 to 1970)
  • Mini Marks III–VII (1969 to 2000)

Most of these vehicles were built under the British Leyland or Rover Group name, as they owned the marque until it was sold to BMW in 1994.
