The last of the current-generation Mini has left the manufacturer's Oxford production line.
Production of the all-new 2014 Mini hatchback is already underway at the plant. The new model will launch in spring next year, and will include much sharper looks as well as a new range of three-cylinder engines.
Prices for the latest generation will start at £15,300 for the entry-level Cooper, rising to £16,450 for the Cooper D and £18,650 for the range-topping Cooper S.
The car is underpinned by parent firm BMW's UKL1 platform, which will go on to underpin the entire new Mini range. The platform is capable of supporting various wheelbase lengths as well as different powertrains, including hybrid and electric options.
The firm says that, to date, over a million of the current-generation Mini hatchback models have been built at the site, between 2006 and 2013. In total, the site has constructed over 2.1 million Mini vehicles since 2001.
The outgoing Mini hatchback was launched in 2006, and saw the introduction of a new range of turbocharged engines, as well as new technologies to improve fuel economy and performance.
Mini describes its new Mk3 hatchback as "distinctly familiar, yet completely fresh from the ground up and enhanced in every single way".
