Mini revealed the official sketch of the upcoming Clubman. The new Mini will debut later this year. The Clubman will feature around 18 inches added to an R56 chassis (8″ within the wheelbase, 10″ behind it) along with a right side suicide “coach” door. The door will open to allow easier access to the rear seats making the MINI much more small family friendly.

The final version of MINI’s new shooting brake will be available in five models;

  • 95 bhp Clubman One
  • 110bhp/180lb ft of torque Clubman Diesel
  • 120 bhp Clubman
  • 175 bhp Clubman S
  • 220+ bhp JCW Clubman S

The European public debut is scheduled for the Frankfurt Motorshow in early September with the North American most likely debut set for Detroit in early 2008.
