It's changed a lot over the 50 years it has been in existence (not least, since it went over to BMW), but there's no denying that the Mini is still cool – and you could be one of the first people to drive the new model, the electric Mini E.
You can apply online right now to be one of 20 testers of the new eco-friendly Mini, although it's not free to use. You will lease the car for six months for £330 a month from December, along with the cost of electricity to charge. You also need to be in South East England (which rules us out) and have a private garage, car port or parking space at their home to accommodate a high power charging wall box.
If that's you, you'll get the uber-exclusive car, plus maintenance, servicing and technical assistance from the Mini team, who will no doubt also pop round to check the data-logging units, which are fitted to every Mini E to evaluate each driver's experiences. Applications can be submitted throughout September – good luck!
