A big round of applause for rally extraordinaire Stephane Peterhansel, the X-Raid team, and the Mini Countryman ALL4 for winning the Dakar 2012 outright!
Defeating the likes of Bowler Wildcats, Red Bull VW Touaregs, and Hummer H2's, the Countryman ALL4 crossed the finish line with all the swagger of its ancestor:
However, this does not change just how much bigger in size Mini has gotten with the introduction of its first 4-door, all wheel driver model.
Take a look at what the Mini was all about back in the old days. Shot by Pete Fullarton, directed and edited by Lucy Armitage, this short video was produced for the Glasgow Riverside Museum to celebrate the original Mini's revolutionary design. Check out more of Lucy Armitage's work here. Enjoy!
