We've seen so many spy shots of the Clubman, we were considering skipping MINI's press conference altogether, but one aspect of the Clubman's physique has remained elusive -- until now. Shots of the hatch of MINI's new elongated compact have surfaced over at km77 and as previous reports have confirmed, it's a vertically split tailgate. A duo of handles, wipers and exhaust tips give the Clubman a balanced boot, while the plastic color-matched C-pillars, taillight surrounds and bumper guard tie the roof to the new rear-end.

The Clubman is set to be released next month, with its official unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show. These shots, reportedly taken during a commercial photo shoot, take even more wind out of the MINI's sails, but we doubt it will dampen the enthusiasm of would-be buyers.
