The MINI Rocketman Concept will make its public debut at the Geneva Auto Show on March 3rd, but MINI released information and photos today.  Slightly longer than the classic Mini at 11′ 3″, The Rocketman Concept gives MINI an entry into the expanding city car market.  Innovative features include the “carbon spaceframe”, double-hinged doors, LED headlights and projector taillights, a removable central contol unit (including navigation and music player), illuminated transparent roof, and a “3+1″ seating arrangement.  However, the 18” wheels and required wheel arches depart from the space-saving attempts, as does the boot space taken up by the “drawer”.
