    Rousseeuw's minimum volume estimator for multivariate location and dispersion parameters has the highest possible breakdown point for an affine equivariant estimator. In this paper we establish that it satisfies a local Holder condition of order $1/2$ and converges weakly at the rate of $n^{-1/3}$ to a non-Gaussian distribution.
