When the first mini was launched in 1959 it cost £500 which was the average yearly wage in the UK at the time. With the average yearly earnings now at around £25K it looks like the relative cost of buying a car has certainly come down considering £12,000 would buy a fairly good car now-a-days. £25,000 could buy you either a "C" class or maybe even an "E" class at the moment.
