New MINI Clubman ‘Bond Street’

MINI is presenting a new exclusive Clubman Limited Edition model the MINI Clubman ‘Bond Street’ which will only be on sale for a limited time

The new MINI Clubman Bond Street will premiere at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show this coming March and it has a distinctive look as the exterior is finished in Midnight Black Metallic with contrasting roof and all the lower sections of the C-pillars are finished in Cool Champagne. The twin spoke 17” alloy wheels complete the look with the trim edge also finished in Cool Champagne. The interior is equally impressive with lounge leather sports seats finished in Carbon Black with contrast piping and stitching, the dashboard is covered in Black/Carbon black leather and all the other interior surfaces are finished in a Deep Champagne, the upmarket look is completed with the chrome line interior package.

The standard equipment on this model is far from ‘standard’ it includes front fog lights, climate control, on-board computer, Bluetooth, USB functionality, rain sensor and automatic headlamp activation, sport leather steering wheel and height adjustment for both front seats. Plus customers can enhance the appeal of the car further using the extensive options list of comfort, convenience, design and technology features. There are four engine options offered: two petrol and two diesel and all come with a six speed manual gearbox with a six speed automatic available as option.

Limited Edition cars have been around for years and many car manufacturers take launching them very seriously, some good and some bad. They name them after movies, songs, people, special events and as we can see here iconic places. There is one thing for sure though that when buying a premium brand limited edition it can make a car buyer feel special, but why?

Well first of all it is different and it is unique, and then there is that feeling of knowing that heads are turning as you drive past, giving a feeling of pleasure and feeling that little bit special. Then there is that knowing, that you won't see many on the road as only a certain amount will be built giving that assurance of the car holding its value long term because of the desirability factor.

Prices for the new Bond Street model start at £20,275 for the MINI Cooper, £21,625 for the MINI Cooper D Clubman, £23,355 for the MINI Cooper S Clubman and £24,045 for the MINI Cooper SD Clubman.
