The luck of the Irish
From 1962 to 1963, the Saab 96 reigned supreme at the historic Rallye de Monte Carlo, with its goofy two-stroke three-cylinder engine and moon-faced Swedish pilot, Erik Carlsson. But this glory was short lived. The next four years would
A multicultural mod
This 1964 Mini is known as Makino-chan, and it is one of the poster cars of Jeiven Perez's Sushi Factory. The other, a very slick first-generation Toyota Celica, was already featured in this magazine not too long ago. Both
Fantastic driving machines
We are huge fans of the Mini brand, not only because the entire lineup is fun to drive, but also because of its deep and rich history. Imagine, the first-generation Mini took on the big dogs in the World Rally Championship
Sadly, it's only for the UK market
Mini has reinvented the supermini yet again with its new entry-level model, launching in special edition GT styling, named the 1499 GT. It's inspired by one of Mini's best-known sporty classics, the 1275 GT original from 1969, and
We like our space
If I were to choose a Mini in the current model lineup, I would easily choose the Cooper S hatch for one simple reason: I love hot hatches. And with its renowned go-kart-like feel, the Cooper S hatch truly performs.
But perhaps the price is part of the appeal
Hang on, this isn't a new car. It is, sort of. It's called the Mini Remastered and it's the work of Silverstone-based start up, David Brown Automotive. The idea is to take an original Mini, pull it to
It was just as fun as it sounds
Mini's cars have always exemplified a few key qualities: quirkiness, adventure, tongue-in-cheek fun, and humor. But their driving dynamics are second to none, a reflection of the brand's strong motorsports heritage. So when Mini Philippines invited us to
A new kind of sport wagon
Let's get it out of the way: I'm a sucker for wagons. Their practicality appeals to me. I guess I'm not really the type who is into crossovers. I prefer to ride close to the ground and still have
The big Mini gets the JCW treatment
Mention the name John Cooper Works and the image of a small, three-door Mini ready for the racetrack comes to mind. But with the popularity of the compact crossover, the British performance division must have deemed it wise to roll out

A great time to be a car nut
Thirty-four degrees. That's how hot it was outside during the Mini Track Day held at Clark International Speedway on Labor Day. You could probably add another three or four degrees on account of the asphalt covering the racetrack. Honestly, standing
Mini is owned by BMW, remember?
The Americans may not know how to host beauty pageants--well, at least one doesn't--but they sure know how to crack the whip on the automotive industry. According to a Reuters story, US safety regulators fined BMW $10 million (P472.
Dear Santa...we've been really good
The Mini is not what it used to be. While most people might still remember it as Mr. Bean's car of choice, we think it's obvious that the British vehicle's modern version has left its predecessor's cutesy image
