That looks nice, but how will that windscreen actually block the wind? It looks like a Barchetta and these things will sell like hotcakes if they make it to production!

the only way ur gonna flip a mini is if u drive it off a ramp with only two wheels, that car has had amazing suspension from way back in the day, i saw a new one the other day flying around the on ramp to the 404, it had NO bodyroll at all, sick sick sick! it just stuck to the road

If it goes into production they'll probably incorporate the same type of rollover protection system that they use in the Bimmers
