BMW has launched its version of the British cult car, the Mini, which will go on sale in the UK on 7 July.

The basic Mini One will cost 10,300, while the more luxurious Mini Cooper, due to be launched later, will cost 11,600.

The company hopes to produce 100,000 Minis a year at its factory in Oxford.
