Mini Submits Patent Drawings For Superleggera-Inspired Roadster

DEC 16 2014 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 12

BMW Board Member Peter Schwarzenbauer recently confirmed that an electric Mini is coming “soon.

We predict that the electric Mini will be based on the Superleggera Vision Concept and that Mini will make an official announcement declaring a production electric based on the Superleggera by mid-2015.

Recently, Mini filed paperwork and patent drawings showing a lightly revised version of the original Superleggera Concept.  This leads us to believe that Mini will put this vehicle into production and we further assume that the vehicle seen in these drawings will indeed be the first electric Mini to be mass produced.

We can see the line forming already.

Very curious about this one!

If it goes to market, I wonder if the base price will be about the same as a Model S 60, or a Model S P85D…..

Not likely to afford one this year without a Lotto Jackpot.

Pretty sure that after 107,467 comments, that is our first wrestling GIF sighting…maybe our first GIF at all, (=
