Mini has released some images of an updated Rocketman concept, released to celebrate the company’s involvement in the London 2012 Olympics. Changes include a new Union Flag-inspired paint job, and lots of bespoke details – including a glass roof, which illuminates using fibre-optics to re-create the iconic Union Flag roof.
First unveiled at the 2011 Geneva motor show, the Rocketman concept was intended to be a smaller, much more space-efficient 3+1 seat alternative to the full-sized Mini, featuring a clever carbon-fibre reinforced spaceframe chassis.

The concept will be displayed close to the Olympic Village in the BMW Group Pavillion – where as official sponsors of the 2012 Olympics, a display of BMW and mini products will be on show.
