Clubman, Countryman, Rocketman.......I am waiting for Caveman.
Very COOL !
Holy crap, Eni is back? DAMN, been ages.
As for this car, it's cute and weird. I really love the roof and the tail-gate solution on this car.
I was thinking the same thing, welcome back Eni.:eusa_clap
I like it it's funky and fresh!
Nice weight saving! Given BMW's CF research initiative together with Mercedes I can picture Mini paving the way for CF in small hatchbacks.
That's very cute and adorable! A mini Mini...
I like it a lot!
i think so to. but with the help of "BMW i" carbon could actually get a lot cheaper. Until now carbon parts weren't able to be mass produced, in the "i" press conference they stated that they are now able to do so. so lets wait and see.
one thing that i still need to criticize
its aprox. 20cm smaller then the R53(the first new mini)
does it really make such a difference ?
or how an austrian would say "das macht das kraut auch nicht fett"
YouTube - MINI Rocketman Concept
It's a fantastic concept, well done to the people at MINI. I love the relevance of the whole thing and that it's packed with futuristic stuff like the different composite panels, door hinge mechanism, ambient lighting and uber-cool dashboard.
Yeah - it's great - futurist yet plausible, relevant and cool all in one go. My kind of concept car.
Yes. The second Mini Cooper is already much bigger compared to the first, and the third one coming up will grow even more compared to the first Mini Cooper....and now this new one will be 20 cm SMALLER than the first new Mini.
That's a lot, and if they decide to make this Rocketman, the difference in size between it and the 3rd gen Mini will be huge!!
Heck, just look at the pic of the old Mini and this Rocketman. The old Mini is not much smaller.
I like the LED rings and hope they will spread!
Do you notice the carbon fiber wheels... fantastic
but we are still far off saying that they
because they already had a generation of minis which nearly had the same size
the second thing is, does the MINI really need to become a Polo (in terms of size)
The design is a bit busy, but I'm loving this little guy!
awesome sketches by John Buckingham too!
GROUP FOTO, 1959-2001- 2011
y' like to see a better foto size comparison, but is cool see all together
I agree some general detail are too bussy, like the rearlights, but I wouldn´t expect those details to go into production, so no problem.
What I´ve always thought, and now even more after having seen this concept, is that the current MINI is too big. This Concept has much better proportions than the car we have today.
