2012 MINI Clubman Hyde Park

Sauntering through the city in style: MINI Hyde Park and MINI Green Park.

As MINI defines the streetscape, so the Royal Parks in the heart of London define the structure and rhythm of life of an entire city. For centuries they have constituted vital oases amid the hustle and bustle of the English capital. Now the championing of British tradition and lifestyle can be expressed in particularly stylish fashion courtesy of the design models MINI Hyde Park and MINI Green Park, whose exclusive colour combinations and trim levels lend them an appeal that is at once classic and sporty. Yet again MINI strikes attractive individual notes wîth these eye-catching characters on wheels who are ready to unleash their impact amid the urban traffic of other big cities as well.

Harmoniously combined design and trim features for the exterior and interior imbue the MINI Hyde Park and MINI Green Park wîth a self-assured and stylish presence. Both design models are available worldwide in MINI and MINI Clubman body styles. Depending on the market, there is a choice of up to four engine variants: the MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper Clubman wîth 90 kW/122 hp, MINI Cooper D and MINI Cooper D Clubman (82 kW/112 hp), MINI Cooper S and MINI Cooper S Clubman (135 kW/184 hp) and the MINI Cooper SD and MINI Cooper SD Clubman (105 kW/143 hp). All engines come as standard wîth a six-speed manual transmission, while a six-speed automatic is optionally available.

MINI Hyde Park: classic espousal of a British way of life.

Únobtrusive extravagance is the defining element when it comes to the appearance of the MINI Hyde Park. Its discreet Pepper White body colour is combined wîth Hot Chocolate contrasting paintwork – available for the first time – on the roof and exterior mirror caps. A further facet of the MINI Clubman colour scheme are the lower sections of the C-pillar in body colour. To match the contrasting paintwork, the MINI Hyde Park also sports bonnet and side stripes in Hot Chocolate, while another highlight is provided by indicator lenses in transparent white. Along wîth the direction indicators integrated in the headlights, this lends the side indicators and rear lights a markedly individual look as well.

Inside the MINI Hyde Park, surfaces in Pepper White underline the classic, balanced overall impression. The seat upholstery and optional Colour Line draw on the entire range available to the MINI and MINI Clubman. Ensuring a particularly eloquent interior design match are seats in cloth/leather or Leather Gravity wîth the Carbon Black or Polar Beige Colour Line and the MINI Yours dashboard lined in leather in a Black/Polar Beige combination.

With the MINI Hyde Park, the British premium small car manufacturer continues the tradition of design and special-edition models named after parts of London. Hyde Park spans 140 hectares and is famous for its Speakers' Corner on the northeastern edge. The park is a haven for countless leisure activities in the centre of London and a green oasis that invites you to stroll between the shopping hot spots of Kensington and Oxford Street. It is also the starting point for the London-Brighton Run, the annual veteran car rally. In 2012, as part of the Olympic Games hosted by the capital of MINI's home country, the Triathlon and Marathon Swimming events will be held in Hyde Park.

MINI Green Park: ambassador of the sporting heritage.

The traditional British passion for sporting competition is expressed in the exclusive design of the MINI Green Park. The roof and exterior mirror caps display British Racing Green paintwork, forming a pleasing contrast wîth bodywork in Pepper White. Bonnet stripes in British Racing Green and transparent white lenses for the direction indicators heighten the distinctly classic-sporty look. On this design model, too, the lower C-pillars of the MINI Clubman are in body colour.

The MINI Green Park likewise has interior surfaces in Pepper White, reflecting a cabin design that takes its cue from the exterior. And providing the perfect complement again are seats in Black or Polar Beige and the MINI Yours leather-lined dashboard in a combination of Black/Polar Beige. Also available as an alternative to the MINI design favourites are all other variants along wîth the entire range of optional extras for the MINI and MINI Clubman.

The MINI Green Park takes its name from a recreational area very near Buckingham Palace. Covering an expanse of 19 hectares, this park forms a key element of the city's green belt, linking Hyde Park to St James' Park. All told, it makes for a walk of some four kilometres through the Royal Parks, from Kensington Palace in the west to Downing Street in the east.

MINI at the Auto China Beijing 2012

Intoxicating driving fun, ground¬breaking efficiency, uncompromising quality and an unmistakable personality have provided the building blocks for the global success of the MINI brand. The one¬off premium small car maker is also enjoying increasing popularity in the Chinese market among contemporary, trend¬conscious and highly demanding target groups. The diversity of the brand's model range also helps to enhance its appeal, and the complete MINI family – now comprising six models – is on display at the Auto China 2012 international car show taking place in Beijing from 27 April to 2 May 2012. Auto China 2012 is also the venue for the world premiere of the MINI Clubman Hyde Park. Like the three other takes on the MINI character celebrating their Asian premieres at the Auto China show, this design model vividly showcases the hallmark attributes and values of the MINI brand.

The wave of MINI success initiated by the MINI, MINI Clubman and MINI Convertible has also gained fresh momentum in China wîth the introduction of the brand's first five¬door model, the MINI Countryman. And now the two newcomers to the model range, the MINI Coupé and MINI Roadster, have stepped up as powerful drivers of further growth. The two¬seater pair create even greater scope for customers to experience the hallmark MINI style and unsurpassed driving fun of the brand's cars in their own individual way.

The latest design and special¬edition models represent further alluring additions to the MINI line¬up. Stand¬out features include their extremely harmonious blend of design and equipment, which underlines the unique aspects of the MINI character. The historical roots of the brand, its sporting flair and extravagance, and the aura of quality inherent in a premium car are all elements running through the core of the MINI Hyde Park, MINI Baker Street, MINI Bayswater and MINI Convertible Highgate.

Another striking feature the new special¬edition MINI models all have in common is the adoption of areas of London for their titles. With just months to go before the British capital follows in the footsteps of Beijing by hosting the Olympic Games, MINI has picked up on cutting¬edge trends and timeless style cues from the city, which over the years has captured the hearts of visitors from all around the world. Hyde Park – the majestic green space at the heart of the city – joins Baker Street (of literary and musical fame) and the exclusive residential districts of Bayswater and Highgate as the inspirations for these distinctive models. The MINI Clubman Hyde Park reveals an immediate connection to the country of the MINI brand's birth, its colour concept providing a very modern interpretation of the traditional British way of life. Notably, this is the first MINI design model to be offered in two body variants; the MINI Clubman Hyde Park lines up alongside the MINI Hyde Park.

Exclusive design features for the exterior and interior likewise mark out the three other interpretations of the MINI character on show at Auto China 2012. These are complemented by extremely classy and thoughtfully composed equipment features. The MINI Baker Street embodies the youthful, fresh and innovative trendsetting style of the brand, while the MINI Bayswater focuses primarily on the sporting verve and agile handling for which MINI is renowned. Exceptional open-top driving pleasure is the speciality of the third member of the trio; the MINI Convertible Highgate exudes an aura of exclusivity and majors on British style wîth a contemporary twist.
