Turns out the Rocketman will feature in a short film, which could have a bearing on its longer-term future. Details of the web-based film state:
The 2 minute product film is part of a social media campaign across YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. The car itself will go into production based on the response from MINI fans.
We love the Rocketman concept and wish filmmaker Mischa Rozema all the best for this project.
