Even if you're not European you probably know "the Mini", a car that was invented by the British in 1955-57 and got famous throughout the world in the 60's. Well, we still have a few ones in Paris, like this one that I photographed in the 16th arrondissement. I've read that 80% of its length was dedicated to passengers, and only 20% to the engine, which is quite a challenge (and probably was even more at that time)! They (that is BMW, the company that bought the brand in 2000) still make Minis nowadays, but a model that has very little to do with the old one.
