From spring 2011 MINI will open up another new avenue when it comes to the ultra-stylish customization of the brand’s cars. The MINI Yours range of products will feature exclusive design options delivered from the factory for the exterior and interior of the current range of MINI models.
The first graduate from the program is the MINI Clubman Hampton.
The MINI Clubman Hampton special-edition model embodies the character of MINI Yours. Its design features reference both the brand’s British heritage and the special edition’s unique designation, inspired by the southwest London suburb.
The MINI Clubman Hampton is painted in the Reef Blue metallic shade developed specially for this model. The roof and surrounds for the special edition’s rear doors are silver, as are the wheels and Color Line. The exterior colors Pepper White, Midnight Black and Eclipse Grey can be specified as an option, while Black and Reef Blue are available as contrast colours for the roof and C-pillars. The light-alloy wheels in Twin Blade Spoke design can be ordered in silver or black with a dark red trim ring. The headlights come with black reflectors if the optional xenon units are specified.
The car comes branded with a logo on the B-pillar and “Hampton” lettering on the side indicator surrounds and radiator grille provide subtle references to the car’s exclusive status. The “MINI 50 Hampton” lettering on the door entry strips adds more uniqueness to the car.
Inside, the Hampton sports an “H” on the seat tags, red edging and orange contrast stitching. The anthracite-colored roof liner, the likewise anthracite dials of the rev counter and the speedometer on the Center Speedo also contribute to the model’s special ambience. The Centre Speedo is bordered by a trim ring in matt dark red, like that on the wheels.
The Chilli Pack is also included in the MINI Clubman Hampton, adding items such as a sports leather steering wheel, foglamps, automatic climate control, an on-board computer, a light package, a storage package and special velour floor mats in the style of the special-edition model.
