Mini Week continues with a quick look at some of the Mini Coopers owned by The Beatles. Paul McCartney owned a 1965 Radford Mini Cooper S. The car has been auctioned a few times, most recently by Bonham's in 2002, and is on display at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum.

One car in George Harrison's collection was the Austin Cooper S that was featured in the film
Magical Mystery Tour (1967). As part of their 50th anniversary, Mini Cooper (BMW) recently made a reproduction of the car with George's designs. The car was presented to Olivia Harrison and sold to raise money for George's Material World charity. Read more at the George Harrison website here. See Olivia Harrison introducing the auction here.
