I So Wish The Mini Clubman Gran Turismo Concept Was Real

Get The 395 HP AWD Mini Clubman You Always Wanted In Gran Turismo 6

Mini is the latest company to jump on the Gran Turismo Vision Concept bandwagon, and the car they're cooking up for GT6 is appropriately bonkers.

Mini Ad: You Might Be A Mini Driver If...

We know you were expecting a MINI next ad campaign to go something like "car driving picturesque road, details on competitive features, then price," but such is not the case. Instead, they're defining MINI drivers by their hipsterish actions. [Automarket] » 1/15/10 4:40pm 1/15/10 4:40pm

"The Other MINI" Ad Campaign Is Clever, Somewhat Strange

BMW's MINI Group loves clever ads to push their products. These "The Other MINI" ads are particularly sly, painting the Clubman as a black sheep in the family, like other familial outliers. » 5/13/09 9:30am 5/13/09 9:30am

Ten Best Cars For A Fall Weekend Trip

Fall's crisp winds, wet roads and bright foliage are here. But just because it's no longer summer doesn't mean you can't enjoy a weekend driving trip.

A Bad Bad Mini Clubman For A Good Cause

We don't have an English press release to explain why this naughty little 2008 Mini Clubman was created, but we can piece together enough of an explanation with our limited German comprehension and even more limited analytical skills.

Chateau Mini Is Invitation To Snootiness

Aznom (nom nom) has introduced their Chateau Mini, a car which acts to combine the twin yuppie delights of the Mini Clubman and French Chateau wine. How do you combine the two? By using ooh-la-la materials on the inside and apparently lots of different shades of brown, oh, and install a stocked "wine cellar" inside… » 5/09/08 9:20am 5/09/08 9:20am

Jezza Hates the Mini Cooper S Clubman

Dang. We know Jeremy is a bit of a crank and prone to bouts of overwrought, under-accurate vitriol, but he actually goes on record saying he would prefer a goat to the new Mini Clubman. Not a GTO mind you, but a can-eating goat. Why? Well, one reason is England-only (and Japan, and OZ) — the 3rd half-door is on the… » 12/26/07 6:00pm 12/26/07 6:00pm

Dutch Autoweek Gets It Wrong On JCW-Infused Mini Clubman

Last week, the folks at Autoweek.nl reported the release of the new JCW Mini Clubman. According to the Mini-gasmic folks at Motoring File, they were totally wrong.

John Cooper Works Mini Clubman Revealed

Autoweek.nl is following in the embargo-breaking footsteps of its 'merican magazine cousins (not related). Whereas AutoWeek leaked the early deets on the Clubman, Autoweek.nl's releasing details on the new John Cooper Works edition of the slightly-bigger-than-mini Mini.
