Mini Rocketman

In an ideal world, 'Mini Rocketman' would be what Elton John called his son. But it does equally well for Mini's latest concept, due to be unveiled at the Geneva show. It answers criticisms that have been circulating since the launch of the New Mini - that its inflated size is an insult to Issigonis' pure design - by being really rather small. Brilliantly, they're calling it a '3+1'; you can get three people in there in relative comfort, four at a push. But you're better off having two (or, ideally, one).

If it does go into production, we'll have to hope that they don't make a convertible... those funky rear light hoops would make it look like a shopping trolley.
