Super Exclusive Mini Clubvan Sells 50 Units And Then Leaves America

Illustration for article titled Super Exclusive Mini Clubvan Sells 50 Units And Then Leaves America

Some things are exclusive because they're high end super-exotics. Others are exclusive because basically nobody buys them and the company realizes they made a mistake. The Mini Clubvan falls into the second category.

What is the Mini Clubvan, you ask? It's the Mini Clubman without the rear windows or rear seats and such. Basically it's a cargovan without the whole "usability factor" that makes a cargovan so desirable.

Mini thought this was a good idea. The people didn't think this was a good idea. Mini only sold 50 of them and is now withdrawing them from the US due to "low demand."

That means Mini realized one car they need to get off the market, maybe they'll (HINT HINT) take another one away soon, too.

That's gonna be a Mecum Auto Auctions special in the future. Those 50 examples ought to be kept in perfect shape. Usability be damned, I think this is gonna be an awesome classic to have in the future because vans are cool and limited edition FWD compact BMW-fettled vans are sub-zero.
