Released in 2003, The Italian Job is an American action thriller starring Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, and a trio of red, white, and blue MINI Coopers.

The film follows a group of thieves who plan to steal gold from a former associate who double-crossed them and features a legendary getaway scene involving three MINI Hardtops as they race through the streets of downtown Los Angeles and in the underground tunnels of the LA Metro Rail System.

32 MINIs were used in the making of the film, with the actors trained to do as many of the driving scenes as possible. In addition, three of the MINIs were specially converted to full battery electric drive to be used in filming the escape scenes in the underground tunnels of Los Angeles.
