Unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, MINI Clubman Hampton special-edition model embodies the character of MINI Yours. This is the first limited-edition variant of the MINI Clubman that continues a tradition established by successful editions of earlier models for instance, the Park Lane, Seven, Checkmate and Sidewalk editions.
MINI Clubman Hampton design features reference both the brand’s British heritage and the special edition’s unique designation, inspired by the southwest London suburb. The Clubman Hampton is painted in the Reef Blue metallic shade developed specially for this model. The roof and surrounds for the special edition’s rear doors are silver, as are the wheels and Color Line.
The exterior colors Pepper White, Midnight Black and Eclipse Grey can be specified as an option, while Black and Reef Blue are available as contrast colors for the roof and C-pillars. The light-alloy wheels in Twin Blade Spoke design can be ordered in silver or black with a dark red trim ring.
The headlights come with black reflectors if the optional xenon units are specified. A logo on the B-pillar and “Hampton” lettering on the side indicator surrounds and radiator grille provide subtle references to the car’s exclusive status.
The “MINI 50 Hampton” lettering on the door entry strips recalls the introduction five decades ago of an additional bodywork version of the classic MINI, which today ranks as the historic predecessor of the MINI Clubman.
The interior of the MINI Clubman Hampton also boasts a very distinctive style. An “H” on the seat tags, red edging and orange contrast stitching is the identifying features of the black Lounge Leather seats.
This exclusive special edition will be available for the MINI Cooper Clubman, MINI Cooper S Clubman, MINI Cooper D Clubman and MINI Cooper SD Clubman. Production of the MINI Clubman Hampton will be limited to one year.
