    'Picking the greatest Mini of all-time is no easy task! Do you go for the first and original Mini – the model which revolutionised small car design and construction and became a statement of the Swinging Sixties?
    Or do you choose the sizzling Mini Cooper which dominated motorsport and pre-dated the supermini hot hatches we all know today?
    And what about the current MINI – where does that fit, if at all, into the hall of fame? In this issue we've answered all these questions and more in the free magazine which celebrates 50 years of the Mini success story.
    Our road test team selected its top 12 finalists – and then brought them together for the ultimate Mini shoot-out.
    Each car was driven and assessed on road and track, and then ranked and rated to deliver the definitive verdict.
    So which is the greatest Mini of all? And where does your favourite rank?'
