This is the Mini that we believe should be the Mini of the future. It’s the Rocketman concept presented back in 2011, as a new properly-mini Mini given that the current model range has grown and grown with each successive generation.
Unfortunately the Rocketman concept was then canned on the grounds of being uneconomic. But the idea has resurfaced again in the guise of a Mini Minor – arguably a less romantic moniker than Rocketman.
Whatever they end up calling it – let’s hope something approaching this gorgeous concept makes it to market – a beautifully progressive piece of British metal indeed.
