Jalopnik homeboy Gabe and his Motoring File minions say the new Mini Clubman wagon will be unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show later this year. That's two years since the company introduced the Mini Frankfurt Concept — the prototype of said Clubman at 2005's biannual berraschungsangriff. The company went on to introduce concepts named after the subsequent Geneva, Tokyo and Detroit shows, before going radio silence. But the production model — sporting a few new paint shades, like "Hot Chocolate" — will hit showrooms in Europe this November and early 2008 in the US, following a local debut at the Detroit show.
