Heading to Geneva for its official public debut in March, the 2013 Mini Clubman Bond Street "design model" marks the latest special-edition variant to be added to the automaker's prolific family tree. Named after London's most exclusive shopping district, the Bond Street package adds a touch of distinctive class to stretch-wheelbase 3-door Mini model. Rendered in Midnight Black set off with Cool Champagne contrast color on the roof, mirror caps lower C-pillar elements, hood stripes and exterior indicia, the Bond Street edition also wears 17-inch Twin Spoke Black light alloy wheels and features front fog lamps and the Chrome Line Exterior package.
Inside, the Clubman Bond Street features sport seats done in Carbon Black Lounge Leather with contrast elements in Deep Champagne -- a color also used on numerous other trim items -- a leather-covered Black/Carbon Black instrument panel, bespoke color-coordinated floor and a blast of brightwork from a Chrome Line Interior package. Complementing features that include a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, Sport Button, cruise control and height-adjustable front seats and rain-sensing wipers with auto headlamp activation the Bond Street kit also includes the supplemental Storage and Lighting packages.
The 2013 Mini Clubman Bond Street will be available in the U.S. with either a 121-horsepower naturally aspirated engine (Cooper) or 181-horse turbo alternative (Cooper S) and either can be paired with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or optional paddle-shiftable 6-speed automatic. Arriving here this spring, pricing for the Bond Street editions will be revealed closer to the official on-sale date.
