MINI Cooper Bond Street

 

MINI has already established a tradition of releasing London-inspired special editions and now the carmaker is giving us a fresh one, the Clubman Bond Street. The vehicle takes inspiration from the famous shopping street and will bring “a unique interior and exterior interpretation that reflects the style of this most upmarket of London addresses”. Visit our own special Londoner at Ferman MINI of Tampa Bay and ask Gary !

The car is dressed in Midnight Black Metallic, featuring a contrasting roof, exterior mirror caps, bonnet stripes, as well as Cool Champagne-finished lower C-pillars. It rides in 17-inch alloy wheels with a double-spoke design, which mix a black center with an outer circle finished in Cool Champagne.

Climbing aboard, we find a Carbon Black finish with contrast piping and stitching for the lounge leather seats, Deep Champagne trimming, as well as a Chrome Line pack.

The special edition offers a comprehensive list of features, including including front fog lights, Chrome line exterior package, climate control, on-board computer, Bluetooth, USB functionality, rain sensor and automatic headlamp activation, sport leather steering wheel, height adjustment for both front seats, the storage package and the lighting package.

Stop the Ding...

If you’ve ever put something on the passenger seat like a bag, backpack, groceries, dog, box, mail, coat, potatoes, gallon of milk, icecream, laptop case, luggage, bag of mulch (please say no!!), trumpet, gym bag, 2 liter or Root Beer or anything similar in size, weight or size you’ve likely been annoyed to all hell by the super obnoxious MINI warning sound (which by the way will chime 60 times and then start again once there is any shift in the weight/movement). As if we are not intelligent enough to know that every human sitting in a moving vehicle should be properly anchored with a seat belt! MINI feels we need to be reminded that SOMETHING is in that seat that COULD be the weight of super small child or hobbit and we should be ‘ding-donged’ until our ears bleed. End the annoying chime sound with this simple piece of metal that is sized just like the seat belt connector which when inserted into the belt receiver makes the car think the belt IS plugged in. Doubles as a large (like silly large-but still cool) keychain when not in use.

Not to be used to fool the computer if there REALLY is a person in the passenger seat!!

If anyone knows a thing or two about high-speed travel, it’s Santa Claus. So when it comes to the whole globetrotting, breakneck-speed travel game, we’ll forgive you for thinking some things are best left to pros like him. Not that MINI agrees. With a lengthy legacy of snow-taming behin it, MINI is once again limbering up to spread some yuletide goodwill this holiday season.

This weekend, the MINI family begins an epic cross-continental trek from Milan, Italy, to the very edges of the Arctic Circle, in Finland’s Rovaniemi. And the convoy will be taking with it an avalanche-sized delivery of Christmas gift requests from adults and children the world over — so many, in fact, that MINI hopes to break yet another Guinness World Records title by delivering the longest wish list to Santa Claus (that would make three this year.) And with hopefuls from 16 countries across Europe, Asia and North America all putting in their yuletide orders, it sure sounds like Santa will have his work cut out this season.

But don’t worry, Santa. If the reindeer don’t quite make the grade this year, MINI is on hand to help. Three members of the MINI family will be making the voyage: MINI Clubman with its typically generous cargo capacity; MINI Countryman with its excellent off-road skills; and the MINI Hatch, master of the go-kart feeling.

 

If all that’s not enough, the arriving MINI will be welcomed by a true member of motorsport royalty: Rauno Aaltonen, winner of the legendary 1967 Monte Carlo Rally. He’ll be behind the wheel at Rovaniemi to prove that the best things never change, as he parks his historic Classic Mini and climbs aboard the new MINI Paceman to put it to the test.

Keep up with the ongoing MINI action from the snowy roads on Facebook and Twitter!

The third generation of the modern MINI Cooper will spawn a new five-door variant when it goes on sale next year, as confirmed by these latest spy shots of a prototype for the more family friendly MINI.

On initial glance the prototype looks similar to previous mules for the regular 2014 MINI Cooper three-door, but it clearly features four doors and what looks to be a conventional rear hatch–making this a five-door.

Centrally-mounted exhaust tips also confirm that this is the slightly sportier Cooper S version of the new MINI five-door. We suspect prototypes for the Cooper version will crop up soon.

To accommodate the extra doors, MINI’s designers have stretched the wheelbase. It also appears they’ve raised the height of the roof in order to maximize interior space.

We’ve previously reported on the five-door MINI Cooper, which is likely to replace the suicide-door-equipped Clubman. It’s not clear whether this model will pick up the Clubman name or be called something entirely else.

MINI is hoping the increased flexibility will make its new 2014 Cooper range appeal to a wider audience and boost sales beyond last year’s tally of roughly 285,000 units for the previous generation. Note, despite the additional set of doors, the rear seats will still only be suitable for small children, so parents with a couple of teens best look elsewhere or at least have a second car if a MINI is a must.

Under the hood will be BMW’s latest three-cylinder engine family. In the U.S., base Cooper models will get a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine with around 121 horsepower and 133 pound-feet of torque. Cooper S models will get a more potent version of this engine, which most likely will match the 181-horsepower rating of the outgoing version.

Look for the debut of the new 2014 MINI Cooper range in the first half of next year, with this five-door variant, whatever it’s called, to arrive shortly after.
