A new MINI, a new FIAT a new TRABANT?

The boxy East German-made car—perhaps best known in the West for its prominent placement above the stage in U2's Zoo TV tour 15 years ago—might be on the verge of a comeback. The motorheads at Autoblog report that German company Herpa has secured the rights to the name and plans to introduce a full-size concept at next year's Frankfurt Auto Show. Can't wait that long? This February, the brand is introducing a toy version, which is arguably even better than the real thing.
