Along with the new line of Cooper SD models, Mini will be launching a bunch of special editions this year named after London boroughs, districts and landmarks.
Here we look at two of the first, the Clubman Hampton and the Pimlico hatchback. They’re both extremely fashionable vehicles, garnished with designer touches inside and out and featuring unique colors.
The Clubman Hampton, named after Hampton Court, is recognized with its Reef Blue Metallic and black roof. You have other choices for the color combination but this ble is a bespoke color. It also gets the CHILI pack as standards which means it’s loaded with features.
Then there’s the Min Pimlico which is ought to continue the success of MINI Graphite Special Edition and gets stuff like 16-inch rims and piano black interior as well as unique badges.
Details and pricing of both models is as follows:
MINI Clubman Hampton
The MINI Clubman Hampton is painted in Reef Blue Metallic, a colour specially developed for this edition, with black roof and rear door surrounds. Exclusive black Lounge Leather seats are edged in Damson Red piping and feature a seat tag with an ‘H’ seat tag. The Damson colour theme is repeated on the bonnet stripes, a pinstripe around the mirror caps and in the piping and stitching on the floor mats to highlight the satellite Grey or Carbon Black colour line and the Anthracite headlining. The instrument faces are in Anthracite, like JCW models, while the Central Speedo is also surrounded by a Damson Red ring.
All Hampton editions are fitted as standard with the CHILI pack which includes automatic climate control, on-board computer, Bluetooth with USB Audio, fog lamps, a sports leather steering wheel, a light package and a storage pack. In addition all models feature exclusive 17″ Twin Spoke alloy wheels with centre caps incorporating a Damson Red lining (wheels in Silver or Black), Bi-Xenon headlights with black interior reflectors and MINI 50 Hampton badging on the door sills, side indicator surrounds and the B pillar and front grille. The MINI 50 Hampton lettering on the the door entry strips recalls the introduction five decades ago of an additional bodywork version on the classic Mini, which today ranks as the historic predecessor of the MINI Clubman.
