In what can only be described as a shocking turn of events MINI USA has decided to pull out of the NYC Auto Show just weeks before the doors open. It was rumored that MINI had intended to use the show to unveil the new F57 convertible. It’s unclear if a change of plans with that car led to the pull-out or something more MINI USA specific or even if it’s a part of a broader auto show strategy. Read on for the full official statement. continued →

Last year MINI showed us the thinly vieled Clubman concept that gave us an excellent view of the 2016 model. The new Clubman will be the largest MINI to date and feature a full six doors (four full doors plus two barn doors). It will also have a number of features not seen on MINIs to date including a patented BMW aero technology called “Air Curtain.” Together with the “Air Breather” the system reduces drag on the bodyshell in a very simple, but extremely effective way.

It took us some time, but our interview with David Duncan and Chris Potgieter is finally available! One quick disclaimer before you listen. Because the new JCW was the focus of this year’s NAIAS, we didn’t have a chance to ask all the questions that were submitted on MotoringFile. We are truly sorry for that, but rest assured that these questions are not lost, and we will do our best to answer them in the coming months. There’s also some bonus content at the end of the recording for any BMW fans out there. Enjoy!

Head over to the comment section to do so.
