MINI Malaysia Celebrates 60 Years of MINI And Teases Anniversary Model

Last weekend was a pretty happening one for automotive icons - what with a send-off for the Beetle production comes to an end - but a little lesser known was MINI Malaysia's celebration of the 60th anniversary of the MINI brand. This can be a little confusing as MINI (all uppercase) was a rebrand of the original Mini models, coming into the world at the turn of the century. Either way, it's a celebration of six decades of (relatively) compact, (impeccably) fun cars that have established a cult following - both classic and modern.

To honour this anniversary, MINI gathered its MINIacs and Friends of MINI to form a giant number 60 with their MINI vehicles at the TUDM Kuala Lumpur airfield. The formation was done with the intent of having the Kuala Lumpur skyline as a backdrop and it certainly makes for a memorable photo.

As for the anniversary model, MINI will be unveiling it this coming Friday in celebration of the 60th birthday of the brand. This will be the first of two models to be launched this year with regards to the celebration, and if their history of limited-run specials is anything to go by, it should be a model that's snapped up as quickly as it appears.
