New Mini Clubman on the Horizon, the People Rejoice


Mini Clubman Rally Edition

Well, people like me rejoice.  I’ve always been a huge fan of Mini Coopers; they’re practical, unique, fuel efficient and they handle like a go-cart…that’s a good thing.  When the Clubman came out, I considered trading in my Subaru, but I couldn’t justify the trade-in.  But now they are just tempting me further with the Mini Clubman Rally Edition.  It gets the full treatment; 17″ wheels, a Midnight black paint job with silver racing stripes, HID’s, a sexy black/anthracite interior, sport package and aero kit, a roof rack (!), and green rear view mirrors…?

Yeah, not sure about the mirrors, but everything else sounds perfect.  Coming in at $32,999, it’s pricey for a Mini, but it’s also going to be very exclusive; only 70 examples of the Rally Edition will be shipped to the states. If you want one, call your Mini dealer today… I mean now, mister.

American Top Gear Website Goes Live!


The UK Top Gear crew has put together a new section of their website that is dedicated for the American audience.  On this new section you’ll find only the best reports taken from the Top Gear television show, Top Gear Magazine and Top Gear’s UK website, but now with a little more “American flavor.” 

It’s nice to see some love for the US audience.  No official word yet on whether the US version of the Top Gear television show will get a spot on site, but my guess is that it’ll find a home there.
