Flock of MINI Clubmans Caught Uncovered



The coming weekend is the biggest worldwide get-together of MINI cars known as MINI United. MINI cars old and new, modified and stock will be partying at the Dutch racetrack at Zandvoort. The event in 2005 held in Misano, Italy had 6000 MINI fans from 40 countries in attendance.

MINI management has decided to also take advantage of the site location in Zandvoort to show the new MINI Clubman model to its MINI public relations representatives from around the world. Naturally, it was a closed event to give PR reps the chance to get behind the wheel and familiarize themselves with the soon to be launched model.

Fortunately for WCF, one of our photographers Chris Schotanus managed to get these shots of the new MINI Clubman in action.

The Clubman official Internet launch is expected next month with its public debut at Frankfurt in September and then European market launch in November.

hey, not too bad looking afterall. I have a '04 MINI Cooper S, and was worried that they were going to mess around too much with a good thing. And fortunately the recent '08 upgrade on the Coops was not too drastic...although I do prefer my interior vs the new!

Thanks for the photos!:)
