Mini Superleggera

27 May
2014

Productionising the Mini Superleggera Vision concept. Besides adding the side mirrors, door handles, proper windscreen and interior from the current Mini Roadster, I’ve also given it a more production-friendly rear lights and front grille. Lastly, I’ve lowered the side door sills, making the doors bigger for easier access.

Oh I’ve also reduced the size of the fin on the trunk.

Incredible adaptation… But it’s sad to see the “union jack” rear lights go away, although it’s known they would be pretty much a pain in the ass in order to adapt them to security regulations… Once more, amazing job…

I would love to see Mini make something like this after the appallingly heavy Mini Coupe and Roadster… A fine job!

Hey Theo, great transition from concept to stock. But you should’ve kept the union-jack-taillights. If not in shape, at least as LED-graphics.

As per what ‘A’ suggested, how about a coupe render? Maybe with a RCZ-like bubble roof? More practical in Asia.

A wonderful car.
But it is not a Mini.
Make some little changes at the front and you will get a perfect new Fiat 850 Spider.
