Inspired by the high-end Bond Street shopping destination in London the MINI Clubman Bond Street is a limited edition model that will premier at the upcoming 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March
Bond Street, London is a well known posh shopping destination from the roots of the iconic MINI brand. MINI’s latest model takes inspiration from the high-end nature of the street to introduce a limited edition of the Clubman called the ‘Clubman Bond Street.’
The MINI Clubman Bond Street will premier at the upcoming 2013 Geneva Motor Show featuring cosmetic tweaks to give it a unique touch.
The Clubman Bond Street will be available in a Midnight Black metallic exterior shade with a contrasting roof, exterior mirror caps, bonnet stripes and the lower sections of the C-pillars that will be finished in a goldish silver shade that MINI calls cool champagne. Even the new twin spoke 17 inch alloy wheels incorporate the shade in the centre and outer edge.
Bond Street badges have been stuck on the side indicator surrounds, the limited edition name has also been engraved on the metal door sill protectors.
Inside, the lounge leather seats have been finished in carbon black with contrast piping and stitching. The instrument panel has been finished in black (as per MINI tradition) with carbon black leather inserts, the metal interior surfaces on the dashboard and door cards are finished in the deep champagne shade.
The MINI Clubman is a rather well kitted car and the limited edition Bond Street model features standard equipment such as fog lights, climate control, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamp activation, leather steering wheel, height adjustment for both front seats, airbags, traction control and the MINI storage package (additional storage spaces) and the lighting package (LED interior lighting).
The MINI Clubman Bond Street is available with four engine options, consisting of two petrol engines (a 123PS version and a 186PS S version), and two diesel motors (a 113PS version and a 145PS version). All engines are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a six-speed automatic gearbox is available as an option.
The MINI Clubman Bond Street limited edition variants will be priced between £ 20,275 (Rs. 17.25 lakh) and £ 23,355 (Rs 19.87 lakh) in the UK.
