When you need a high-speed chase through a busy city with cars that don’t just turn up the excitement but turn on the style, you go for the MINI. It was like that in the original The Italian Job, as well as its modern remake.
In the 1969 version of The Italian Job, 16 Mini Coopers were used in total. At the time, they were all the pre-1968 Mk I models, although their license plates said otherwise.
In 2003, The Italian Job was remade and released as a far more action-oriented film, considering it had Jason Statham and Mark Wahlberg in it. For the movie, most of the stunt driving was done by the actors themselves, be it Mark Wahlberg, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, or even the others.
In the 2003 movie, the audience saw only three Minis, a red, a white, and a blue one. But in truth, 32 Mini Coopers were used for production, one of them bearing two steering wheels.
