Mini Clubman Hampton Edition - Click above for high-res image gallery
has confirmed a slew of upcoming models, including the Clubman Hampton special edition
that recently leaked onto the web. The company says that the tricked out Clubman
will be joined by a new John Cooper Works
pack for the Cooper S
, Cooper S Convertible and Clubman S, and that European buyers will be able to lay their mitts on a sportier diesel model as well.
As part of the Mini Yours customization program, the Clubman Hampton is set to wear unique Reef Blue Metallic paint with Damson Red stripes and mirror caps outside with special wheels to suit. Jump indoors and the interior is swaddled in uprated seats with red piping and contrasting orange stitching. Classy.
Meanwhile, those with a penchant for speed can turn to the new John Cooper Works Pack. Thanks to some tweaking on the engine management, the Mini engineers managed to pull an additional 16 horsepower from the turbo four-cylinder, bumping the final figure just shy of 200 ponies and 199 pound-feet of torque. Mini says that the 0-62 mph run can be tackled in as little as 6.8 seconds, and that a special exhaust and lightweight alloy wheels are also part of the package.
Finally, European buyers can get excited about the addition of the new Cooper SD. The pint-sized oil burner packs 143 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel mill and 225 pound-feet of torque. Along with all that grunt, the SD comes with start/stop, brake regeneration and electronic power steering to eek out as much fuel economy as possible. The 0-62 mph dash takes around 8.1 seconds while churning out 65.7 UK miles per gallon. Spend a little time with a calculator, and you'll find that the number averages out to around 54.7 mpg on the U.S. cycle.
So far, there's no indication that the Cooper SD will show up in the States.
