A matte black Ferrari Enzo or Rolls-Royce Phantom is cool because the owner confidence (balls) to take a flashy ride with an expensive paint job, and go for the flat black look. So it is a little less impressive on a $31,500 John Cooper Works Mini Cooper Clubman.
For a car that is being showcased at the ultra-luxury Dutch Millionaire Fair in Amsterdam this Mini is a little lacking. The Clubman only really features a new matte black paint job, 18-inch wheels (17’ are standard), and a interior color not currently available from the factory (Hot Chocolate). The engine is the standard 1.6-liter 208 hp unit from the factory JCW Clubman.
Yes this car is a kinda fun, and the matte black definitely will make this different from the other Mini’s out there, but we expect something more creative from a company who has been a lot cooler in the past.
