    Finally, MINI has join the herd of VGT. This icon is only available on the newest 1.09 patch.

    What it would look like? When it will be available? :D Just speculate.

    Personally, I think it would be a beefed up version of MINI Rocketman:

    Interesting article considering it doesnt mentioning Gran Turismo, Sony, or PD in any way.

    I think it looks totally different to those two.

    It will not be a car that has already been unveiled.

    In that case & the way Minis seem to be growing in size, it'll probably be some hideous 7 seater SUV :lol:

    I expect something closer to the VW, but more Lamboish. Open top with hard lines. Tires as tall as the doors. 2 seater with extreme lights.

    It will be a modern tribute to the monte carlo rally mini from the 60's.

    It may be. The Mitsubishi was floating around on Google prior to its GT6 release.

    I hope it is based around the mental Mini BMW made shortly after the acquisition. The crazy german engineers decided to chuck an M3 V10 into an original mini in an MR layout to see what would happen. The test drive nearly killed himself on the first lap around the nurb and said he would never drive it again.

    Not quite the same thing but I remembered this article from a while ago... BMW M3 Power in a Mini... competed in the BTCS http://www.ddurrelltech.com/bmw/mini-belcar-s3.pdf

    Not quite the same, but if something like that was the vision GT for mini I would be a happy bunny. That said, we haven't had that many lower-powered vision GT cars...

    Perhaps something small, light and nimble would be a nice change of pace (pun-pun-pun-pun) in comparison to the monster power cars we've had so far

    With Mini in the Dakar as a semi works effort, and previously in the WRC as a works effort, and Mini backing J P Dayrauts Mini Pikes Peak effort, I'm betting this will be something bonkers, but perhaps more of a rally car than a track weapon.

    I'd be happy with a rally-oriented mini

    A 3/4 scale of the current JCW would be nice.
    I know we can't have a Mini the same size as the original on 10" wheels but park the current car beside the first BMW owned model & tell me it's still a Mini in any way other than name.

    Something along the lines of the new F56, maybe a JCW GP version.

    A ridiculously retro Paddy Hopkirk style Mini, would be nice.

  21. I'll bet good (and real) money on it not being either of these.

    Because, hey, the BMW Vision looked nothing like this BMW Vision

    You're probably spot on. When all PD have to do is crank up the polygons & move them around, who knows what they'll come up with? Going of what we've seen with the 'visions' so far, it could be anything.

    I hope it's just not just another large variant on the typical BMW MINI styling. I'd love to see a MINI that is small, light and fast taking cues from the British MINIs. These large cars with the same-ish styling just aren't doing much for me. Again, sorry MINI fans I don't mean any offense. Even if it ends up being more of the same BMW MINI stuff I'll still enjoy it :D

    Hahaha you're funny.

    I'm not colour blind. I was referring to the photo being comedy gold.

    It won't be the MINI Superleggera in the photo, but it could be something a bit similar. I hope, just as those who I've quoted below
    -that a MINI VGT will be a return to (or at least, reflection on) MINI's roots, and not yet another stretched, squished and smeared variation of the ever-inflating beast that BMW calls MINI.
