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.

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.

This jumble of hoses and wires helps propel the classic Mini from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a blistering 13-plus seconds.
