Some say you should never meet your heroes, especially when it comes to classic cars.

The Mini’s road-holding and lively handling…few could have predicted the sensation set off by a tiny, quirky, front-wheel-drive hatchback with an engine mounted sideways and a suspension that literally relied on big, cone-shape pieces of rubber.

Even designer Alec Issignosis was blown away by the Mini’s popularity. Committed to the notion of the Mini as an everyman’s car, Issigonis initially resisted the idea of tuning the car for racing but eventually yielded after seeing a prototype from race-car builder John Cooper. (Cooper’s Formula 1 cars had won the constructors’ championship in 1959 and 1960.) Cooper S production began in 1963.

For all of its performance and personality, this car still seems humble. It’s an honest instrument of functional practicality. Like most things people can’t help but love, the Mini Cooper S’s source of coolness is that it never tries too hard.

BMC really did reinvent the people’s car when it introduced the Mini in August 1959, and BMC and Alec Issigonis won the Dewar Trophy for this space- and fuel-efficient design as a result. The Mini became the template for future economy cars.
