MINI Unveils Rocketman Concept

rocketmanFor the past few years, it seems MINI has been growing with the Clubman and Countryman.  Now it's time to go smaller.  This concept car was unveiled at the Geneva auto show.  With MINI going back towards it roots, this concept car has yet to be cleared for production though.  With it's interesting dual hinged doors, and 3+1 seating, it certainly implements some new interesting ideas.

At 3,419mm long, and 1,907mm wide, it is about 40cm longer and 50cm wider than the original Mini.  It utilizes copious amounts of carbon fibre for the frame, and can be seen throughout.

Other unique features include the lit-up Union Jack roof, and drawer boot, with LED lighting through out the car.

As with most MINI concept cars, hopefully something similar will be heading to show rooms in the next few years 


 Here is an overview video on the concept.

Or, if you really, really can't wait until the 21st, or are otherwise occupied that day, you can always give me a call and I can set up a test drive and go over the Countryman with you before then.

Man if these only came to Canada two months sooner then this might have been the replacement to the Cooper S. Oh well maybe in the future.

Well, I just had to stop by and take a look for myself. I have to say it does have the look and feel of a MINI inside and out. It doesn't appear to be much bigger then a regular one. In fact, when we first arrived, the entire family walked right by and it said "where is it?" It is quite comfortable inside, and definately a great improvement for getting people in and out of it.

It is very nice indeed, and may just be our next MINI in a couple of years. Looking forward to seeing them out and about next year!

MINI Club Winter Social 2010

Club Winter/New Year Social

Since we are a little behind in our club planning for a Pre-Christmas event, we are going to move it to January to celebrate the New Year and some great times to come.  Therefore, please join us for eats and such at the Wildrose Brewery on January 19th at 6:30 pm.

Note:  I had the date wrong in the email newsletter.  It is Wednesday the 19th, not the 18th.  Sorry for the confusion!

Sign up for the event here. There are also maps to the Wild Rose Brewery there too (click on the two little feet).

Well, not being in Calgary, this might be a good place for me to pop in and say Merry Christmas and all the best motoring for 2011 to my friends and MINI Motorers in Calgary.


Cheers!
