54. Austin seven

54 Austin Seven

The Austin seven was nicknamed the “Baby Austin”. It was one of the most popular cars ever produced for the British market and sold well abroad. It wiped out most other British small cars and cyclecars of the 1920s, its effect on the British market was similar to that of the model T Ford in the USA. It was also licensed and copied by companies all over the world. The very first BMW car, the BMW Dixi, was a licensed Austin seven, as were the original American Austin. In France they were made and sold an Rosengarts. In Japan Nissan also used the seven design as the basis for their original cars, although not under license. Many Austin sevens were rebuilt als ‘specials’ after the Second World War, including the first Lotus, the MK 1 which was based on an Austin seven. Such was the power of the Austin seven name that the company re-used it for early versions of the A30 in 1951 and Mini in 1959.
