This 1960s icon is made up of parts made around the globe.


Grille : Made in Germany
Gasoline engine : Brazil
Hood : Netherlands
Windshield : Belgium
Front and rear bumpers :UK
Headliner : UK
Seats : UK
Outside mirrors : Germany
Exhaust system : UK
Wheels : Italy or Germany
Wheel bearings : UK
Diesel engine : Japan
Front and rear bumpers : UK

Makes me think lots of cars must share the same parts as the Mini.

It'd be interesting to see where parts of the Lotus Elise are made. If there's a car made for adapting this is it.
