Mini Collectibles You Might Like

Outside of real life, the Mini has made its appearance in a variety of arenas.  Here are a few places it has found itself.  This dashing pair of BMW Mini Coopers is available in Scalextric on www.Amazon.com 

This gorgeous replica looks just like a real-life Mini!

This Austin Morris Mini Minor is compatible with several types of slot car tracks. The lights and the siren are real!  Available at http://www.topslotsntrains.com

A replica of the one used in the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally driven by Paddy Hopkirk who beat back the field of the Ford Falcon, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SE, Volvo 544, Volkswagen 1500 and Citroen DS 19 cars. http://www.hotslots132.com

And how about this fine-looking replica!!  Sold by www.burlingtonreplicas.com this is a 1:18 scale replica of the Mini Cooper S used in the 1969 film The Italian Job.


Lego hasn't got an official Mini creator set (or none that we could find), but some very innovative persons have taken their pieces and fashioned them into a Mini Cooper.  Take a look at two of them here.

These are by Stephen Marshall.


This one is by the Lego Guy.

How about this - a Mini Cooper Cake. Anyone care for a slice of Mini?  "I'd like the left front rim please, and a sample of the headlight."  "Man, these windscreen wipers are the best I've ever tasted!"

Made by Debbie Goard.
