This is a 1984 reprint of the 1982 original, depicting prototypes, modified minis, competition cars and variants. Filby, who would go on to found the magazine Alternative Cars, captions each picture well, and illustrates the attraction of the Mini, which continues to inspire enthusiasts and engineers today.
