The boys and girls over at MINI have been busy bodies in the last few years. While the company originally started making just one body style of car with two engine options, MINI has now grown and offers a whole line of vehicles.
You still get the regular Cooper, but add to that the Convertible, the Clubman, the Countryman, the recently announced Paceman, plus the Coupe and Speedster versions planned for 2012, you’d think MINI has enough on its plate already. But you’d be wrong, or at least you would be if the latest rumors prove to be true.
The internet is buzzing with the news that a new version of the MINI Clubman will be launched at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show, dubbed the Hampton. It is said to feature a reef blue metallic paint job with red stripes and door mirror caps.
Along with the expected new badges for this model, also look for such goodies as bi-xenon headlights and new 17-inch alloy wheels as standard. Inside expect black leather with red accents covering seats and other surfaces.
There is no word on price or availability or if any power or chassis tuning is in the works also, but guess we just have to wait till March to find out.
MINI is also expected to debut a new Cooper SD model in Geneva, along with a range of more powerful diesel engines for all of its vehicles.
