Making The Rocketman

Now that the Rocketman is scheduled to debut in 2015 some of the original concept will be left behind. MotoringFile says forget about a carbon fiber chassis or components - just too expensive. Maybe by 2022 but not by 2015. There will be a b-pillar for increased structural rigidity although none appeared in the concept. The LED halo lights are likely to remain. Also expect a center speedo and screen but a more angled dash than the concept. We are also likely to see an electric version.

What will the real name of the vehicle be? The Rocketman? Maybe, but not likely once legal reviews it.

Here's video of the concept from the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
