MINI "Rally Edition" Clubman S headed to America
To say that 2009 has been a big year for MINI is an understatement. In line with the company’s 100th year anniversary, MINI has rolled out a laundry list of special edition vehicles this year alone. Over the course of a few months, MINI has introduced the Mayfair, the Camden, the JCW World Championship 50, and a host of other limited-run vehicles to commemorate the company’s 100th year of existence.
And now, MINI USA, as part of the lead-up for the introduction of the MINI Clubman JCW aero-kit – is bringing to the US the MINI “Rally Edition” Clubman S. With only 70 of these babies being shipped to the US, this “rally Edition” MINI is shaping up to be a must-have car for MINI enthusiasts in America. These guys better act fast, though, because reports have said that each MINI dealer in the US is scheduled to receive only one car, which comes with its own signature plaque signifying the ‘exclusivity’ of the car, for each store.
Continued after the jump.
Set to be sold in October for a base price of $33,000, the Rally Edition MINI comes with a boatload of unique features including a Midnight Black paint job, xenon headlights, 17* black wheels, roof rails, anthracite headliners, a piano black interior finish, and those unmistakable “Rally Green” mirror caps.
Two optional tire features – depending on your preference – also come with this particular limited edition MINI, so you can choose whether you want a summer configuration (17” Black Web-Spoke w Performance Tires (2RW)) or a winter configuration (17” Black Crown Spoke (2RP, 2RV) w All-Season Tires (927) and Cold Weather Package (CWP)) for your “Rally Edition” Clubman S.
