Corgi are proud to introduce the first and only die cast
collection to be inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which we hope becomes a lasting legacy of a monumental moment in sporting history. Whether it is a high end, authentically detailed Limited Edition piece or the start of a multi piece ‘collect them all’ series, there is something here for everyone.
The first Mini was produced in Longbridge, Great Britain on the 3rd April 1959 with the 5,387,862nd and final Mini rolling off the production line in October 2000. BMW will transport athletes around the London 2012 in 4,000 cars, including the BMW MINI as one of six BMW models to be showcased during the Olympic Games. The world renowned BMW MINI has been produced since 2001.
Before he designed the iconic British Mini, Sir Alec Issigonis was responsible for the classic Morris Minor which was launched in 1948, the year of the last Olympics to be hosted in London.
