Report: Is Mini still working on a production version of the Rocketman Concept?

Is Mini still working on the Rocketman? It was recently reported that BMW signed off on a new range of Mini models but the subcompact Rocketman never made the cut. However, a new image has surfaced via Twitter from @conallmahon that shows a Rocketman-like model under going testing.

The car in the picture is finished in a blue and red color scheme and was snapped during a video shoot on the streets of London.

Why would Mini put the Rocketman in a promo if it has no intentions of building it? When questioned by AutoExpress, Mini refused to comment.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
