In time for the London Olympic Games, car maker MINI pays tribute to Britain with the new Rocketman Concept. On display in the BMW pavillon during the Olympic Games later this year, the Rocketman Concept combines innovative ideas for personal mobility in major cities with classical, unmistakably British design features inside and out.
““The concept car approaches classic Mini territory in terms of dimensions, while advanced technology underpins a lifestyle-focused mobility solution equipped for life in large cities such as London over the years ahead. The MINI Rocketman Concept’s spaceframe is made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic, enabling a lightweight construction. Its innovative interior concept accommodates three full-size seats and an extra seat suitable for short journeys.
The new MINI Rocketman Concept wears its British heritage on its sleeve, most prominently in its exterior and interior colour schemes and more subtly through the use of extremely high-quality materials and stylish details. All in all, it embodies a typically British form of sporting elegance.””
While it is a concept right now, we do not see any reason why it should not become reality in the near future. Take a detailed look at the MINI Rocketman Concept after the jump.
