Today (4 October), MG Rover Group will build the last Classic Mini at its Longbridge factory, in Birmingham, UK.

The event marks the transition from an era that produced this great British icon, into the new millennium with the first Longbridge-built Rover 75, as transfer of the assembly operation from Oxford is completed.

Lulu, a Mini owner who has previously featured in a Mini advert, will be attending today's significant event and will be driving the last Classic Mini off the production line, with Kevin Howe, Chief Executive, MG Rover Group in the first Longbridge-built Rover 75.
