Mini Clubman Final Edition | Exclusive to 1969 units

The first Mini Clubman made a strong statement in 1969, as designer Roy Haynes described it: "The assumption that only unattractive objects can be practical has vanished." From 1969 and 1981, the extraordinary automobile with style generated a stir with its trademark split doors at the back. At the time, the Mini Clubman was a station wagon with a large wheelbase and an expanded shooting-brake body that dominated the automotive industry.

The MINI Clubman's new model from 2007 offers a contemporary rendition of the traditional shooting-brake idea. There is just one rear door on the right side of the car, which opens to the back. The MINI Clubman grew to 4.25 meters in length with the third model generation in 2015, becoming more roomy and comfortable owing to a wider wheelbase and two full-sized rear side doors.

The MINI Clubman, with its unusual split rear doors, remains one of the most flexible MINI vehicles to date. The large load aperture makes loading the baggage compartment, which now accommodates up to 1,250 liters, simple. The Final Edition, which is now limited to 1,969 units, commemorates the year that the renowned Mini Clubman was founded and blends the particular brand legacy with exclusive design features and powerful attributes.

MINI-typical slim lines enhance the extended body of the distinctive shooting-brake design in the lower portion of the side doors. These can also be found on the driver's side of the bonnet and the right side of the split doors.

The glittering "Final Edition" text, as well as the "1 of 1969" emblem on the side of the C-pillar, beautifully denote the unique edition. The Union Jack tail lights allude to the MINI Clubman's British heritage.
