The story of the mini

We have to drive them off the road by designing a correct mini auto!’And so Sir Alec Issigonis, a Greek-British designer, made a small vehicle to fantastic honor from his contemporaries. The Mini was very first made under the name ADO15 (Austin Illustration Office job number 15) and also differed custom by having its engine placed transversely (with the crankshaft oriented side to side relative to size of vehicle) and also being front-wheel drive. He positioned the radiator on the left side, yet it had turned around pitch which suggested the air blew into the low pressure area under the front wing. This layout indicated the automobile could be really short in size but it additionally brought with it its downsides. It implied the radiator was fed with air heated already by being passed over the engine, as well as the whole ignition system was exposed to rainwater through the grille. The use of sliding windows instead of wind-up ones provided area for storage pockets, supposedly crafted in a size to fit a container of Gordon’s Gin, to exist in the hollow doors. Drivers and also passengers went through a somewhat tough time, helped along by the woven-webbing seats.
