Mini Launches Final Edition Clubman As It Marks The End Of The Vehicle
The Mini Clubman has gained a limited-run Final Edition specification, which celebrates the British firm’s shooting brake-styled model with a unique design, some 16 years after the moniker’s revival.
Limited to just 1969 models (to commemorate the birth of the original Clubman produced from 1969 to 1981.), it will be available in three colors: Enigmatic Black, Melting Silver, and Nanuq White. Those base hues will be accented by Shimmer Copper trim on the grille and fender vents, as well as three stripes running up the passenger’s side of the hood. Another three Shimmer Copper stripes run along the lower sides underlining the “1 of 1969” badge on the C-pillar. The wagon sits on 18-inch wheels with a two-tone Final Edition Spoke lacquered to recall copper.
Inside, the interior is all earthy tones with dark brown leather bolstering and anthracite fabric inserts in the seats. The floor mats and dashboard feature a serialized badge indicating which of the 1,969 models the car is, and “Final Edition” is printed across the door sills and the base of the steering wheel. Equipment for the Clubman Final Edition is based on the Cooper S in Exclusive trim, with an 8.8in touchscreen, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, a reversing camera, parking sensors, and a premium sound system included as standard.
The Final Edition is mechanically unchanged from the standard Mini Clubman, with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing a peppy 189 horsepower. Mini overlooked the Clubman when it added the manual back to the Cooper last year, so all Clubmans have a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel is optional.
