What started as a tiny little runabout has ended up quite a bit bigger.
No, this vintage Mini is not from the 1960s, though I wouldn't blame you for thinking that. This is a 1999 Mini, complete with right-hand drive and a British racing green paint job.
This is a 2019 Mini Cooper S 60 Years Edition. It's just a smidge bigger.
The classic Mini is powered by a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine, with 63 horsepower, 70 pound-feet of torque and a four-speed manual transmission.
The newer Mini gets a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 engine producing 189 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque mated to a standard six-speed manual.
Surprisingly, even those over 6 feet tall can fit inside the vintage Mini, despite its small stature.
The newer Mini is equally roomy, if more comfortable.
When looked at together, the size difference is really apparent.
This jumble of hoses and wires helps propel the classic Mini from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a blistering 13-plus seconds.
The newer one cuts that time in half.
