MINI Rocketman Concept pays tribute to 2012 London Olympic Games image

The British based automaker MINI has recently revealed the Rocketman Concept, which is paying tribute to the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The MINI Rocketman Concept is getting a modified body and a revised exterior design, inspired by the classic models in the range and by the British flag. Just like the vehicle officially presented to the public back in 2011 during the Geneva Motor Show, the vehicle in the images posted below is a concept car too, and the two models are sharing a lot of ideas, starting with the compact size, the retro shapes and ending with the Union Jack.

The second version of the MINI Rocketman is coming with a plastic and carbon fiber reinforced chassis, along with many body panels made by the same material. MINI says that the Rocketman concept can transport three adults and it also has an extra room for a child, and its roof has been made out of glass, covered with elements which form the Union Jack flag. The MINI Rocketman fans who want to see the model in production shouldn’t be excited by the concept revealed here because BMW doesn’t have any plans to put it into production and it was only made for the London Olympic Games.
