The Oxford plant tour should be on every MINI fans bucket list. However given time constraints and high prices of air travel for those outside the UK, many of us will never make it. So we’re bringing the tour to you.

The following gallery is a look at current production which includes the F56 and F55 as well as a few photos of the R56 and R50 being produced. We also dug up some classic Rover production photos from the same facility.

While photos can’t quite compete with the actual tour, you can clearly seen the attention to detail, commitment to quality and the high-tech nature of the facility itself.
