Jenny and Brian came across this Red, Classic Mini Cooper at The Auto Collections while on vacation in Las Vegas. The sign says next to it says: “1963 Austin Mini Cooper used in the movie, The Italian Job. This is the car that was driven by Charlize Theron in the movie. Price $59,500.” It even sports a title with Paramount as the owner.
But oddly enough, the internet produced different information about the Mini driven in the movie. This is from IMDB.com: “The red Mini Cooper driven by Stella at the beginning of the film is a nod to the Mini Coopers from the original The Italian Job (1969). It is a vastly different model to the one featured in the original, though, being a late Rover-produced model made in the late-’90s, not an Austin Mini Cooper Mk1 as was used in the original film.”
So, I’m not quite sure who to believe. Either way, I could have about 6 classic Minis for that price. If anyone has an answer to this mystery, let me know.
