We’ve got a sneak peak at the MINI Challenge Safety car for the 2008 MINI Challenge series from Europe. This Clubman is a one-off built by the same folks who created the Challenge race car. Built with various Challenge Race car pieces added for increased track performance, what you see below is easily the fastest Clubman ever built. Both the front and rear defuser make an appearance as well as what appears to be a JCW Challenge exhaust. Also take notice of the new rear spoiler – an official Clubman accessory to be offered for 2008.
Could this be a pre-cursor to a full-on JCW Clubman? Time will tell.
Big thanks to Axel for the pics!
