Ten years after the start of production the two millionth Mini was driven off the production line at Plant Oxford by Prime Minister David Cameron. Frank-Peter Arndt, BMW AG board member responsible for production said “production of the two millionth Mini comes on the back of strong demand worldwide. Our recent announcement of an additional £500 million investment in our UK Mini production facilities demonstrates the important role that Oxford plays in our global production network. The most essential factors in the success of Mini are the skills, passion and dedication of our associates.”The two millionth Mini is a Mini Convertible specially painted in White Silver metallic with a blue denim roof. The specification boasts a selection of bespoke interior and exterior options including special alloy wheels, a distinctive leather steering wheel and lounge leather upholstery. This historic car is the prize on offer in a global Facebook campaign called ‘Two Million Minis – Two Million Faces’ which involves photographs of the faces of two million Mini fans being collected and built to create a dedicated Facebook ‘wall’. The winner will be chosen at random after the campaign closes on 30 September.
