1960 Morris Mini - The Italian Job Located @ the Coventry Transport Museum.

"A Mini emerging from a tunnel, representing one of the most famous chase scenes from the iconic movie 'The Italian Job', filmed in Coventry's sewers as the sewers in Milan were too small. Not alot of people know that." - Michael Caine.

So they did this in the original too? I loved the scene in the remake - might have to check out the 1960 version to see how they stack up against each other
