There are so many variants of the MINI today, but the Clubman was where the diversification plan started back in 2008. Largely forgotten and overshadowed by fresher and flashier siblings like the Countryman, Coupe and Paceman, the estate MINI soldiers on with a Bond Street design model. The MINI Clubman Bond Street will debut at the upcoming Geneva show.
If you’ve been to London, you might agree that Bond Street is the most exclusive shopping street in the city. “Setting off for a shopping trip here, in the heart of the City of Westminster, therefore is an expression of fine taste,” says MINI. The same would apply for buyers of the Clubman Bond Street, we presume.
What sets Bond Street (the car) apart is its Midnight Black paint job with Cool Champagne contrasts for the roof, mirror caps, lower sections of the C-pillars and bonnet stripes. Its 17-inch alloys in Twin Spoke Black design come with an exclusive trim ring in Cool Champagne too, and the side indicator surrounds and door sill strips both display Bond Street lettering.
Inside, you’ll find exclusively designed sports seats and a leather-covered instrument panel. It’s mainly in black, accented by Deep Champagne trim.
To go on sale in March, this Clubman comes in four engine variants: a 122 hp Cooper, 112 hp Cooper D, 184 hp Cooper S and 143 hp Cooper SD. As usual, all the engines link up with a six-speed manual gearbox, while a six-speed automatic is optional.
