I have to hand it to Mini on this one. Rather than tease us with closeups (which is annoying in and of itself, automakers) of the 2015 Mini Cooper using some generic whatever music, they did it with a tune from the most famous Mini Cooper movie ever: The Italian Job.
What has four wheels and reflexes so quick it almost seems alive? The MG Midget of course. During the model's final year of production British Leyland decided to pair up the still clean cut and color coordinated sport of skateboarding with their not long for the world and mostly outdated MG Midget to create this…
As a car guy, there is nothing more relaxing that walking through a park and watching other car guys polish endlessly to keep their cars shiny while eager children feel the need to touch everything.
Even a Swiss Army knife-equipped MacGyver couldn't hide that a major chase scene from the show's first season was lifted wholesale from the 1969 film The Italian Job. Luckily, mullets and Minis go together like cheesy music and ‘80s TV.
