Well, that didn’t take long and someone in Munich is going to throw a fit. Although the internet debut of the F54 Clubman is scheduled for tomorrow 10am EST, a French MINI dealer just published photos of the latest MINI on their Facebook page. As anticipated, the exterior design is very close to the concept presented at Geneva last year. We’re also quite happy about the front treatment of the S. As far as the interior is concerned, it differs from the F56’s/F55’s in a few ways and is in line with the additional room available in this new Clubman. Go ahead and feast your eyes while waiting for more details and photos tomorrow. Hat tip to our man Todd for spotting these on Facebook! continued →

Frequent MotoringFile commenter and known BMW insider, Herr26, left us a interesting comment yesterday on our recent post regarding upcoming MINI models. As with all of his comments (here or BimmerFile) don’t take it as fact but perhaps great insight about a moment in time within BMW. In the past we’ve seen many of his proven right but also some proven wrong simply because plans changed within the company.
All that said its well worth a read, so we’re reposting it here. In it, there’s lots of interesting tidbits regarding future MINIs:
- The MINI Spacebox aka the Traveller that will be essentially a larger version of the Clubman based on the recently announced BMW Active Tourer pictured above
- MINI four door sedan
- MINI Activity Tourer which could be something of a larger four door Pacemen with an extremely raked look
- MINI Sports car aka the next generation coupe and roadster which could seeing more variation from the look o the standard MINI
Catch the full comment after the break.

[Official Release] The MINI feels very much at home just about anywhere on the planet. And soon the world will also be the oyster of MINI drivers and their entourages. 12 days on from the “official” start of spring, MINI can announce its arrival among the ranks of camping outfitters. A sumptuously appointed caravan with two sleeping bays and a roof-top tent (also designed for two) in the classic John Cooper Works colour scheme will whet the appetite for do-it-yourself summer holidays peppered with spur-of-the-moment detours along the way. The British premium car maker is very literally inviting us all to dream, while reinforcing its status as a universal supplier of stylish mobility solutions. Its aim is clear: following the unveiling of the MINI Clubvan Concept – the first MINI for everyday business use – at the Geneva Motor Show in early March 2012, come 1 April it will be time to offer customers a very MINI holiday experience as well. continued →

While the Chrome Line interior and exterior packages have long been a staple of spec’ing any new MINI, owners looking for less bling have had to turn to folks like Todd Pearson to get the glair off some of the MINI’s shiny details. It would appear MINI is now seeing the appeal and will soon be introducing a “Black Line” set of exterior details.
