Although its been reported that MINI is not going to produce the Rocketman concept that was unveiled last year in Geneva, MINIi has unveiled an updated version of the concept. As part of the London 2012 Games, MINI has unveiled a new edition of the Rocketman concept that combines innovative ideas for personal mobility in major cities with classical, unmistakably British design features inside and out.
The outside of the updated MINI Rocketman concept now sports the colors of the British flag , the Union Jack, come to the fore on both the outside and inside of the car, red and white accents accompanying the dominant dark blue. It also now rides on 18-inch light-alloy wheels that have white polished areas and a metallic red accent. Matt Porcelain White paintwork is also used for the mirror caps, boot opener and surrounds for the radiator grille and headlights.
“Designed to welcome the athletes taking part in the greatest sporting show on earth to London this summer, the new edition of the concept car underlines the central role played by typically MINI customisation in every new product idea from the brand.”
There still is no official confirmation if the small MINI Rocketman will ever be produced.
