Geneva 2011 – Mini Rocketman Concept – rpmGo.com

Mini Rocketman Concept

We saw lots of concepts this month in Geneva and one of them is the Mini Rocketman, conceived as a throwback to the original 1959 Mini. The concept measures only 3,419 mm long, 1,907 mm wide and 1,398 mm tall, making it worthy iteration of the original model.

Built on a carbon fiber space frame, we will probably not see a production version of this model very soon. However, we will most likely see the new infotainment system fitted to the Rocketman, a system that is capable of integrating smartphone functionality with a traveling Wi-Fi hot spot. This interesting concept also has an ambient lighting system that incorporates fiber optics into the glass roof.

They’ve integrated the taillights into the hoops while the brake lights along with the turn signals are projected onto the concept’s body.

In the months to come, Mini will roll out a roadster and coupe version of the Cooper, hoping that they will have the same success as they did last year when they managed to sell 234,000 units. Their latest model, the Countryman, was an instant hint and the German automaker already sold 23,000 units since September last year.
