Mini Spy Shots

Mini is a brand of small cars that began with the Mark I designed by Sir Alec Issigonis in 1959. Originally sold under the Austin and Morris brand names, Mini became the small car's actual name in 1964. Made famous by one of cinema's best car chases in the film "The Italian Job," the car's design remained relatively unchanged except for different front ends until the all-new Mini Cooper was launched by BMW in 2001.

    Spy shots: MINI Clubman interior exposed
    1184853300

    Although the MINI Clubman has proved to be the worst kept secret from any automaker in recent memory, the one unknown is how BMW's boffins would engineer and design the interior of the stretched Cooper. We knew it would retain the same funked-up, yet toned-down aesthetic of the new R56 MINI, and these stellar shots provided by Gabe over at MotoringFile tell ...

    Spy Shots: Does it get anymore undisguised? Clubman in the buff
    1182859800

    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, ...

    PR event breached: MINI Clubmans caught on camera
    1182546060

    In the timeline of most new car introductions, automotive journalists usually see a new model undisguised well before the public. It's a nice perk. But an even earlier look is often given to a company's public relations staff. Which is what Mini was doing with its Clubman model in Zandvoort, Netherlands. And guess who showed up uninvited? A camera-wielding ...

    Spy Shots: MINI Clubman spotted almost camo-free ... yet again
    1182376980

    Those of you mad for MINI, your hour is nearly at hand. With the furor and the spy shots and the commercials, there isn't much left to ponder about MINI's upcoming long-wheelbase Clubman. However, these shots do reveal the other side of the car that isn't seen in these spy shots, in what could be the exclusive Hot Chocolate color. The latest rumor is that ...

    Another take on the MINI SUV
    1181224560

    Just as MINI is ramping up to launch the Clubman wagon in addition to its current lineup for 2008, rumors are flying about a possible MINI compact sport utility vehicle, reportedly inspired by the Austin Ant and MINI Moke, dunebuggy-ish off-roaders originally designed for the British military. BMW's California DesignWorks studio is apparently already ...

    Spy Shots: Ford Verisa on U.S. soil?
    1177419960

    Could this be the B segment car that Alan Mulally obliquely referred to between Shrub jokes during his NYIAS keynote? What we have here is a Mazda Versia, a JDM car that Ford may be considering bringing to the US. That'd explain it tooling around the Dearborn area, and it looks like it was snagged in California a while ago, too. It'd slot nicely under the ...

    Spy Shots: MINI Traveller/Clubman
    1168556520

    The MINI Traveller, or as it should now be officially called, the Clubman, has been revealed to us in concept form as well as heavily camouflaged spy pics, but these new spy shots found on The Car Connection reveal a completely undisguised mule undergoing testing. Sporting a wheelbase probably longer than the original MINI itself, the Traveller adds at ...
