'Mocked' Mini Metro turns 40 and finds new fans

Post by mab01uk »

"There are about 300 cars at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire - but only one is adorned with 1,000 signatures.
The significance of that vehicle, tucked away alongside some of the greatest cars ever produced in Britain, is revealed by its number plate.
R100 END was the last Metro ever built at the Longbridge factory in Birmingham, and the signatures on its paintwork are from the men and women that helped to produce it. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Metro launch, and an online exhibition has been created by the British Motor Museum to celebrate a car that divided opinion."
