The MINI Superleggera Vision concept could be one step closer to a production version, with what appear to be patent images appearing online.

French website Jokeforblog has posted the images, which appear to show the Superleggera with a slightly de-styled front end over that of the concept.

The images show a more ‘conventional’ side profile with visible door handles (not present on the concept) but the trademark ‘Union Jack’ tail lamps and centrally-mounted boot lid ‘fin’ may feature on the production version.

The Superleggera Vision concept was first unveiled at the Villa d'Este Concours d'Elegance in May, and has been surrounded by rumours of a production version ever since.

BMW executive Peter Schwarzenbauer revealed last month that the MINI brand may downsize to a core group of five models in the near future, but the door is open for the drop-top Superleggera to be one of those five.

If built, the Superleggera could replace the Roadster in MINI’s current line-up, and a future hard-top version is even a possibility to replace the Coupe.

The patent images suggest a production version could be offered with a folding soft top roof from launch, and would likely target the likes of Mazda’s MX-5 in the sales race.

While the concept featured all-electric power, it remains unclear if a production version would also be available as an EV or stick to MINI’s current crop of three- and four-cylinder engines.

MINI is yet to confirm if the Superleggera will be built, but if the project is in its advanced stages a 2015 motor show debut is a strong possibility.
