The MINI Urbanaut is a real life car. That’s hard to believe at first because all of the both the way it’s designed and how few official photos there are of the thing. But we are here to tell you that it is both real and rather interesting the more you see.

To underline this we’ve put together a full MINI Urbanaut photo gallery (most you won’t find anywhere else) that show off some of the more interesting aspects of the vehicle inside and out.

What you’ll find is a stark lack of detail and nuance that we’ve come to expect in modern MINIs. the subtle creases and curves you see on the Countryman for example are completely gone. In their place are simpler shapes that evoke the original Mini and point towards a more minimal design language the brand has hinted at for years.
