Feb 18, 2009 update to the Mini Cooper Clubman project car

2009 MINI Cooper Clubman

The base Cooper doesn't have the S's characteristic hood scoop.
The rear hatch is replaced with two swing-out doors.
The third "club" door makes it a snap to hoist a baby seat into the back.

We picked up our 2009 MINI Cooper Clubman at Orlando MINI this past weekend, after just a four week wait for the special order process. This is going to be an occasional autocrosser and full-time family hauler for the Schroeder family. Our Cooper Clubman wears a paint color called Hot Chocolate, and we added just a few options to the base model: sport seats, sport suspension, multi-function steering wheel and Xenon lights. The grand total was a reasonable $22,850.

We traded in our 2007 MINI Cooper S, a car that served us well for two years. We look forward to slinging this slightly longer MINI around the cones.

This isn’t going to be a “real” project car, just one that you’ll occasionally see at events.
