Mini again plucks a London landmark as the appellation for a special edition, the Mini Clubman Bond Street joining the Mayfair and Camden, and Bayswater and Baker Street editions of the recent past. You'll recognize the formula of primary color and polished contrasting color, in this case its Midnight Black Metallic for the main event and Cool Champagne for the highlights like the roof, mirror caps and trim rings on the 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside it's Carbon Black leather set off by surfaces in Deep Champagne and the Chrome Line package.

It will premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March before going into production for a limited run that same month. Four engines will be offered, with on-the-road prices ranging from 20,275 pounds ($31,961 US) in the UK for the 122-horsepower gas engine to 24,045 pounds ($37,918 US) for the 143-horsepower SD diesel version. A press release below will tell you all you wish to know.

MINI CLUBMAN BOND STREET: AN EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL EDITION INSPIRED BY LONDON'S FAMOUS SHOPPING STREET

23.01.2013 -- Following in the wheel tracks of illustrious London-inspired MINI special editions such as the Camden, Bayswater and Baker Street, MINI presents an exclusive new Clubman limited edition model named after London's most famous high-end shopping street.

Due to premiere at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the MINI Clubman Bond Street fuses the inherent practicality and superb driving dynamics of the Clubman, with a unique interior and exterior interpretation that reflects the style of this most upmarket of London addresses. Production will begin in March 2013, and like many of the goods retailed in the street that bears the same name, such exclusivity will only be available for a strictly limited period: the MINI Clubman Bond Street will be on sale for a limited time only.

The MINI Clubman Bond Street is finished in a distinctive and lustrous Midnight Black Metallic for the exterior, with a contrasting roof, exterior mirror caps, bonnet stripes and the lower sections of the C-pillars all finished in Cool Champagne. Distinctive light-alloy wheels further distinguish this exclusive Clubman: a twin spoke 17" design in black with a highlight being the trim ring around their edge in Cool Champagne. Further embellishment comes from the 'Bond Street' script applied to the side indicator surrounds and on the doors' sill protection strips.

Inside, lounge leather sports seats are finished in Carbon Black with contrast piping and stitching. The instrument panel is covered in Black/Carbon Black leather, while other interior surfaces are finished in Deep Champagne. The Chrome Line interior package adds the final flourish to a highly distinctive and truly premium cabin ambience.

As you would expect with such an exclusive limited edition model, the MINI Clubman Bond Street benefits from a wealth of standard equipment, 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.

As with every MINI, customers can enhance the appeal of their car further using the extensive options list of comfort, convenience, design and technology features.

The MINI Clubman Bond Street is available with four engine options, consisting of two petrol engines and two diesel-powered options: the MINI Cooper (122hp), MINI Cooper S (184hp), MINI Cooper D (112hp) and MINI Cooper SD (143hp). All engines are linked to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with a six-speed automatic available as an option.

      Never got the clubman. It is the ugliest by far of all the minis. So it has a little more space you have to be a real mini fanboy to buy this. You buy the mini cooper for the smallness and go cart like drive. Buying this ugly clubman is like Apple Fan buying anything Apple. So many better looking and cheaper products better then this, I doubt the clubman sells many units but since they already made I guess then can continue pandering it to the pure Mini Fanboy

        I don't get how people who've never driven a car (which you clearly did not drive) are able to make an informed opinion of it. As someone who has driven them all (except the Paceman), I love the Clubman more than the other models for many reasons. It drives BETTER (less busy) than the regular Cooper - the extra length makes a difference on bumps when you have a sport suspension on such a small car - but moves quickly. The extra legroom is just enough and putting the seats down gives enough space to haul items that would not fit in the Cooper. I think it looks better than the regular MINI, but to each his own on that one, and I love that it doesn't have those odd headlights from the Countryman. It maintains its MINI-ness while adding just enough practicality to make it a good choice for those who want a smile on their face. And nothing has put a smile on my face like this car - anyone who drives one will tell you that. The gas mileage is insanely good and its perfect for urban spaces.

        you see plenty Clubman at the track. The Clubman is only 8 inches longer than the standard mini. 8 inches make a big difference in legroom (thats what she said) My teenages sit very comfortable in the back of our Clubman. there are things I dont like about the mini, mostly strange contols, but it size is not one of them. I can still throw the car around like a go cart. I have not seen any reviews that knock its performace. Now the Countyman is a different story.

      Wouldn't want to head-on with an F-150 in one of those. Funny thing, too, is that the F-150 gets similar gas mileage with the Eco-boost..

      Cannot tell the special editions from the regular ones anymore. They all look the same...

      if you're shopping in London.. you don't drive.. you get on the tube (underground) or the train.. If you're shopping in a car.. you'll be in a Middle Eastern registered Bentley with horrific wheels and your initials embroidered on your ghastly coloured seats..

      These were obviously not meant for the United States, if they were, they'd have a 5th Avenue version. More than anything though, its just marketing.
