There are many marvellous Minis in movies, from the classic Mini Coopers stuffed with gold bullion and giving the Carabinieri the run around in the Italian Job, to the self driving Mini used by superspy Auston Powers, film-makers love a Mini.

The first Minis rolled from the production line in 1961 and became an instant hit, a symbol of the oh-so-cool swinging 60s. Anybody who was anybody owned a Mini, including every member of The Beatles. 

No wonder film directors were queuing up to feature Minis in movies. As well as both Italian Jobs and Austin Powers’ Goldmember, Minis had starring roles in four James Bond epics — You Only Live Twice, Live and Let Die, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker — The Bourne Identity, Mr Bean and a host of other films. 

Despite their celebrity film status, because of their size and practicality, Mini’s have always been pretty economical to insure.  Here the team at Adrian Flux crunch the numbers on some of our Minis in movies to find out how much it would have cost to insure them.
