Let’s take the Shmini and GP2 back to their home at Plant Oxford, the MINI factory in Cowley, England. On the way, it was only right that my classic Mini would lose its front number plate in style before we rescued it on the hard-shoulder.

Upon arrival we can take a look around the facility where 1,000 cars are built per day, including Body in White, Assembly and the Paintshop to see what goes into a car taking shape.
