The past week has been abuzz with a report from Britain's Car Magazine stating that the MINI Superleggera Vision concept - shown last year - would go into production in 2018 as a replacement for the slow selling Roadster model. However, MINI's top executive put the kibosh on that report somewhat.
Peter Schwarzenbauer, head of MINI told Automotive News Europe that the concept is still under discussion.
“I cannot confirm that it has been approved yet,” said Schwarzenbauer.
Schwarzenbauer has been a big proponent of the concept, saying it would be a “great addition to the Mini range” and has been pushing for the model to enter production.
