The MINI JCW Clubman Untold Edition is the most outlandish special edition from the brand in years. And of all of the recent special editions release earlier this month, it’s the Untold edition that pushing things into uncharted territory for the brand. Especially with how it uses color.

To start the gorgeous Sage Green comes to the Clubman for the first time and in a big way. Not only is the body finished in the color but the plastic trim and wheel spats have, for the first time, been dyed in Sage Green creating a tone on tone look.

But MINI didn’t stop there as they’ve mingled brass trim with piano black trim and gorgeous Leather Lounge seats finished in Sage Green. Light-coloured seams and piping as well as textile inserts in the upper and outer areas of the seat backrests create another unique touch. Alternatively, sports seats are also available in the MINI Yours Leather Lounge Carbon Black variant. In the cockpit, illuminated accent strips in Sage Green and exclusively designed interior surfaces with a subtle striped pattern and green color scheme are combined. The bottom spoke of the Nappa sports leather steering wheel as well as the floor mats feature an edition emblem. The result is an interior that’s stunning and likely not to everyone’s taste.

Something else to note, the Untold Edition is the only of the recent special editions available as a JCW. The MINI Clubman Untold Edition will be available with the start of March production. That should mean cars at dealers in the US by Mid-March on the east coast to Mid-April on the West Coast.

Official Release: 2023 MINI JCW Clubman Untold Edition

As a modern interpretation of the classic shooting brake concept, the MINI Clubman clearly stands apart from its competitors in the premium compact segment. This status is reflected in its individual body concept and stylish understatement and is now brought to bear to even greater effect in the Untold Edition. Its specific design features and a body finish in Sage Green metallic – available for the first time in the MINI Clubman – lend a charismatic look to the edition model, which will be available from March 2022.
Added to this are exclusive indications of hallmark driving pleasure, which in the case of the MINI John Cooper Works Clubman in the Untold Edition authentically emphasize the athletic power of its engine. The design of the front and rear aprons, inspired by the John Cooper Works Aerodynamic Kit, reflects the model’s extremely spirited and agile character, powered as it is by a 2.0-liter, 301 hp 4-cylinder turbo engine. This outstanding power goes on the road via an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and the all-wheel drive system ALL4.

Another exclusive design feature of the MINI John Cooper Works Clubman in the Untold Edition are the surrounds at the lower end of the bodywork, which for the first time are finished in dark green. The five parallel sport stripes running centrally across the bonnet and roof are also specific to the edition model. 3D-printed, high-quality side scuttles echo this sport stripes pattern, which is also to be found in the logo projected from the door mirrors and on the door sill trims. The car’s expressive design features emphasize the extravagant body concept, which also offers exceptionally versatile functionality with four doors, a particularly long roof line and two laterally opening split doors at the rear.
A black finish is available as an option for the roof and exterior mirror caps, while the door handles, exhaust tailpipe trims, MINI logos and model inscription in Piano Black are integral to the edition-specific design. The 18-inch light alloy wheels in Untold Spoke design with Bicolor surfaces in the combination Jet Black/Refined Brass were developed exclusively for the edition vehicles. Reminiscent of refined brass as its name suggests, this color scheme is also applied to the radiator grille surround and crossbar, as well as for the “Clubman” inscription on the split doors at the rear.
The anthracite-colored roof liner and the sports seats in MINI Yours Leather Lounge Sage Green add a touch of sporty and exclusive flair to the interior of the MINI Clubman in the Untold Edition. Bright stitching and piping along with textile inserts in the upper and outer areas of the seat backrests particularly emphasize the stylish atmosphere of the interior. As an alternative, sports seats are also available in MINI Yours Leather Lounge Carbon Black. In the cockpit, illuminated accent strips in Sage Green are combined with exclusively designed interior surfaces featuring a striped pattern and a green finish. The surrounds in Refined Brass on the air vents create a particularly elegant appearance. The MINI Untold Edition emblem is to be found on the lower spoke of the Nappa leather sports steering wheel and on the floor mats.
In addition to its exclusive design features, the MINI Clubman in the Untold Edition also offers particularly high-quality equipment. This includes LED headlights, the MINI Excitement Package and the MINI Driving Modes as well as the lighting package for the interior.
The latest generation of the MINI operating system optimizes the quick and intuitive control of vehicle functions, audio, communication, navigation and apps. Live widgets on the 8.8-inch touchscreen display of the central instrument are used to activate the desired menu item, which can be selected as on a smartphone by means of a swiping motion. The Connected Navigation Plus package ensures intelligent connectivity at the very highest level, including a multifunctional instrument display, a navigation system, the MINI Head-Up Display and telephony with wireless charging, as well as numerous digital services including the Amazon Alexa voice assistant, Remote Services and Real Time Traffic Information.
