The Minissima is a small concept city car that was designed by William Towns (as the Townscar) as his idea for a replacement for the Mini in 1972.

In common with the Mini it was designed around 10" wheels and the BMC A-Series engine. It is 30" (75 cm) shorter than the Mini and designed to park end-on to the kerb, having only one door - at the rear. It has four seats, two at the front, front facing, and two facing inwards at the rear[1].

BLMC displayed the car on their stand at the 1973 London Motor Show.
