Clubman S model being used to promote JCW brand
24 August 2009

Mini has launched a 'Rally Edition' Clubman S - although it will only be available to US buyers.

Just 70 Rally Editions will be sold, and they have been created to create publicity ahead of the release of the Clubman John Cooper Works (JCW) tuning kit for the car in the US.

Changes from a standard car include 'rally green' mirror caps and side skirts, a black paint scheme, a matching roof, Mini’s Sport Package, clear lens indicators, xenon headlights, 17-inch black alloy wheels and a Bluetooth kit.

Optionals include the JCW tuning kit, sport stripes, a roof rack and rails, a new roof basket and driving lights finished in black.

Prices with the JCW kit start at $32,999 (£20,000).

The news of the car's launch - and Mini using rallying to promote its JCW brand - comes just a week after the brand was linked to competing in the World Rally Championship with its upcoming four-wheel drive car in 2011.

Have the green mirrors been added in MS Paint?

Looks pretty silly with that rubbish on the roof.

LOOOOOOOOOOOL @ the green mirrors.

It looks like it fell off the shelves at Toys R Us. No wonder they're selling it over there and not over here - we'd only fall about laughing.

That's given me my giggle for the day...

By the way, what are "optionals"?*

*Yes I know it infers optional extras but...

It's a clubman with green mirrors.... oooooh.

No wonder they're only making 70.

*rolls eyes*
