BMW shows off Mini Rocketman Olympic Edition
A new Mini? Not quite, although the Mini Rocketman Olympic Edition could be the basis for an all-new Mini.
The car packs a lightweight carbon fibre reinforced plastic frame, along with three full-size seats plus an extra jump-seat designed for a small child. On a less practical (but more eye-catching) side, it also has a full-surface glass roof, with illuminated braces that recreate the look of the Union flag.
No word on the mechanics or indeed, if this mini Mini will finally go into production. With petrol prices continuing to rise, you wouldn't bet against it.
