Revamp a failure but written up as a success
As pointed out the "new" Mini completely misses the marks that made the old mini The Mini. Not cheap, not Mini no one I knew who was considering the new mini when they heard about it actually bought one when they saw it and it's equally oversized price.
What it did succeed at is completely missing what previous generations liked or thought and "reinventing" history to pander to the ignorant of today. With such abilities I'm sure they could come out with a new model of Genghis Khan and sell it as reinvigorating, something everyone should want to visit their country.
