Car brand MINI has previewed design ideas ahead of the launch of its new model later this year, including Union Jack door pockets and a disco floor (+ movie).
Presented at the brand's headquarters in Munich last week, MINI's Vision concept design incorporates a Driving Experience Control switch would allow the driver to change the lighting, colours and atmosphere inside the car from calm to energetic with the touch of a button.
Coloured lights in the footwells could be activated to flash in a series of patterns to create a “MINI Disco”.
Criss-crossing stretchy straps in the shape of the British flag would form pockets inside the doors.
Smartphone holders, a storage box, cup holder or small safe could be clicked onto the floating centre console and removed when required.
Dark blue fabric would cover the lounge seats and the same colour is used throughout the interior, accented with orange.
References to the classic Mini that would be visible externally include the rounded forms of the chassis and a hexagonal grille, which integrates the bumper and auxiliary lights.
The bodywork would be built from a lightweight composite material made from pressed fibres and finished in a new gold-tinted orange paint.
Elements of this concept design will be incorporated in the new MINI to be unveiled towards the end of the year.
