A CLOSER LOOK AT: MINI 1499 GT Limited Edition coming in 2018

MINI has unveiled the 1499 GT Limited Edition, a nod to an iconic model launched back in the 1970s.
The original was named 1275 GT and the nameplate highlighted the bigger engine under the hood compared to what Minis used to come with back then.
