MINI Philippines Joins the World as it Celebrates 60 Years of Iconic Legacy

MINI 60 Car formation is a historical feat.
MINI continues to turn heads with its iconic design both on and off the track. MINI celebrates its 60th birthday this year, and to this day, there is no other brand quite like it. 

To commemorate this landmark occasion, MINI Philippines celebrated 60 Years of MINI with more than 200 guests at Eastwood Citywalk from 19-20 October 2019.

All set for the MINI 60 Formation.

As part of the celebrations, MINI Philippines launched the MINI 60 Years Edition, an exclusive design model highlighting the British origins of MINI, and brought more than 135 MINI owners and their friends together to create a special ‘60’ formation with their MINI
cars at the Eastwood Mega Tent on Sunday, 20 October 2019.

MINI owners happy to join this historical event.

“With its rich heritage and impact on contemporary culture, MINI is more than the car – it is also a lifestyle that celebrates the connections between people, as well as the passion for life,” said Mr Willy Tee Ten, President of MINI Philippines and Autohub Group of Companies. “It gives us great pleasure to bring together the growing MINI community in one place to celebrate this storied brand. We thank all MINI fans for journeying with us, and together, we look forward to the next 60 years!”

MINI Philippines brought more than 119 MINI owners and their friends together to create a special ‘60’ car formation with MINI vehicles. 

Organized in conjunction with the MINI Car Club of the Philippines, this landmark occasion was held at the Mega Tent, Libis with the owners gathering at MINI Pampanga and MINI Alabang before commencing the celebratory drive to the Mega Tent. It was a sight to behold as the cars, each bearing special 60 Years decals and flags, streamed into the Mega Tent to take their place in the formation.

MINI Car Clubs from different parts of the country drove out to join this exciting celebration.

“The MINI community in the Philippines has the most enthusiastic fans who appreciate driving fun, expressive design and premium quality,” said Mr Tee Ten. “It’s fantastic to have so many MINI owners join this milestone event. A big thank you to all of our MINI customers for their continuous support, and we look forward to doing even more with the MINI community in the years ahead.”
