Helping celebrate its 50th anniversary, Mini will present a new special edition model at Geneva. Created as part of the "Mini Yours" exclusive vehicle program and dubbed the Mini Clubman Hampton Package, it's named after a historic London suburb and will be produced for one year.
This take on the standard Mini Cooper Clubman and Mini Cooper S Clubman starts with Reef Blue Metallic paint -- which will be exclusive to the Hampton Package -- paired with silver trim accents on the roof, rear door panels and wheels. The cars also will be available in Pepper White, Midnight Black and Eclipse Grey with either Black or Reef Blue contrast colors. Functional enhancements in the Mini Cooper Clubman Hampton Package include 17-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels in either silver or black with a dark red trim ring and xenon HID headlamps rimmed black housings. As a finishing touch, this elegant Mini variant carries "Hampton" lettering on the B-pillars, door entry sills, side scuttles and radiator grille.
The Mini Yours flair extends to the cabin trimout of the Hampton Package Clubman duo, as well. This stylish inner sanctum is highlighted by seats covered in Black Lounge Leather set off by red edging, orange contrast stitching and an "H" on the seat tags. Both the gauge faces and headliner are anthracite while the large, central speedometer is rimmed in a matte dark red trim ring that repeats the two-tone motif seen on the wheels.
While their production runs will be time constrained, consumer demand will determine total build volumes of the 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman Hampton Edition and Mini Cooper S Clubman Hampton Edition. Pricing will be announced closer to on sale date.
