They could call it the Rover 10 or Austin 7.

Too late now - I imagine structural design has moved on a fair bit since then. Reminds me of the SMART, also as mentioned it's a little more in line with Issagonis's first concept. :)

Do you remember the RED Coupe they wheeled out for Monte Carlo as well? I like the *** Mini, but the name is wrong maybe Maxi, but then the Maxi was practical. You tried using the rear seats and boot - they're useless?

Yes, it is the Spiritual. This was the British one, designed at Gaydon by Rover.There is pic of the 5 door on WWW.sniffpetrol.com this week as well.

Right. Guess who..

1. Junked it?
2. Retains the rights to it?
3. Forbade any further development work on it?

But surely MGR could make something along similar lines.

Fair point, I'm sure that they could. Although I imagine *** destroyed all the research done on the vehicle when they ransacked Gaydon! :mad:

There's also the question of money. However, I think all these stumbling blocks mean nothing - the new compnay is so flexible and forward thinking anything is possible! :)

Pete Stevens is known to have sketched a Sub-B model, by all accounts a Yaris-esque bodystyle, with mini-MPV derivatives - But far removed from the spititual. Pictures do exist somewhere. Kevin Howe and Co. have also admitted the gap in the model range.
But what with the new alliance with Brilliance, as Jerry says, anything is possible!!!
