Just weeks after going all sensible on us at the Frankfurt motor show with their interpretation of the classic Mini Traveller, the designers at Mini have been given a touch more freedom and the result is this Mini Concept Tokyo.
Its makers say that this concept 'reflects the Japanese appreciation for all things British', which explains its Union Jack indicators and matching picnic rug. The roof houses a table and chairs, while in the rear sits a cargo box that can be taken out and attached to the side of the car to make a serving table.
Inside, the cabin is finished with green trim and features rotating seats for easier access and fold-away picnic tables. Though likely to remain a concept. the Tokyo Traveller could inspire some innovative options for the Mini's replacement, due late next year in hatchback, convertible and estate forms.
