As MINI's continue to get non-mini (LARGER)...

If HONDA came out with this, would they beat MINI at their own game?

Except for the big white wheels, I like it.

I like it. Unfortunately the crash regs are going to destroy that front hood and bumper line, which is the cleanest part of the car, IMHO. Oh yeah... I concur... the wheels are just silly, concept or no.

I like that better over anything MINI has been selling in the last 10 years.

I don't believe those are 10" wheels.

Regardless of their size, they look too big on the car and too many white spokes make them too busy for the otherwise clean design.

I would say it should come with a gas engine option but it doesn't matter since it probably won't come to the US anyway.

I can definitely live without this sort of silliness. Fortunately, it's probably something you can just turn off.

I would buy one.

You can change the wheels and you know is is 10,000 times better built and more reliable than any BMW or MINI.

That's a remake of the Honda N360. I had one back in the late 60's when I was stationed in Japan. 360cc air-cooled twin, front wheel drive with 4 on the dash.
