Earlier this month, Prime Minister David Cameron drove the two millionth MINI off the production line in factory in Oxford, England. Prime Minister Cameron said, “it’s a real privilege to drive this true British icon off the production line today. The two millionth MINI is a fantastic symbol of the UK’s strength in the global automobile industry.”
To commemorate this special occasion MINI has decided to turn it into a special edition convertible and offer it up as a prize to their fans on Facebook. From now until September 30th, 2011, MINI fans have the opportunity to upload their profile photo to MINI’s 2 Million Faces page in order to automatically be entered into a drawing for the 2 millionth MINI giveaway.
The MINI 2 million convertible features a unique white silver metallic paint job with a blue denim roof and a selection of bespoke interior and exterior options. Special wheels will adorn the outside along with “2 Million MINI” graphics while the inside will be outfitted with a distinctive leather steering wheel and lounge leather upholstery.
Over the last ten years more than 1.5 million MINIs have been exported to customers in more than 90 countries around the world. Having produced 216,302 vehicles in 2010, MINI was the third-largest vehicle manufacturer in the UK, accounting for 17 per cent of national automotive production. The Oxford plant currently produces four MINI models: the Hatchback, Convertible, Clubman and the new MINI Coupe. A fifth model, the Roadster, will join the line-up at the end of this year.
Penske Automotive Group congratulates MINI on this wonderful achievement. The MINI brand has come a long way since BMW brought it back onto the market in 2001.
