"To manage a successful brand, you should never stop investigating" ways to reach the next level of development, Mini boss Peter Schwarzenbauer told Automotive News at the unveiling of the Mini Superleggera Vision Concept.

That statement seems to indicate that Mini is perhaps "investigating" the public's reception to the Superleggera Vision.  Could it be that Mini is actually considering making this striking Mini?

If this concept moves to production, then it'll be toned down a bit.  For a look at what a toned-down Superleggera Vision looks like, check out these renderings from Theophilus Chin.

Schwarzenbauer adds:

“We wanted to test how Mini enthusiasts worldwide were reacting to such a different type of Mini.  So far, it has received overwhelming appreciation."

If Mini green lights the Superleggera, then Mini sources says it will likely be priced at 35,000 euros ($47,700 USD).  That's a lot of money for a Mini, but the concept does feature some sort of undisclosed electrified powertrain, so we do hope it gets production status.

We now wish Mini would tell us what's under the skin of this striking concept.
