Mini may be owned by a German automaker, but it's never forgotten its Britishness. In fact, the brand's most recent special editions have been celebrating some of London's most famous landmarks such as Baker Street, Bayswater, Camden and Mayfair, so adding West London's shopping mecca Bond Street to the list only makes sense.

The Mayfair and Camden arrived in 2009 to celebrate Mini's 50th birthday, the former in brown and gold earth tones and the latter boldly black and white, whereas the bright blue Bayswater and off-white and black Baker Street arrived early last year. The new Bond Street follows the same two-tone formula, but its main hue is Midnight Black Metallic and highlights done in Cool Champagne, namely the hood stripes, lower sections of the C pillars, mirror caps, roof, and the trim rings on the otherwise black 17-inch alloy wheels.

Likewise the interior features Carbon Black leather seats with contrasting piping and stitching and a Black/Carbon Black leather covered instrument panel, while additional interior surfaces get a Deep Champagne treatment. The Chrome Line package picks up the style quotient. Lastly, unique "Bond Street" script gets applied to the side indicator surrounds and doorsill protectors.

Additional features in the new Bond Street include fog lamps, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, an on-board computer, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, USB functionality, and more, with other standard features likely added when it arrives in Canada.

That said there's yet to be an official announcement of it coming here, but all the aforementioned Mini special editions made their way into our market so keep your fingers crossed.

The Mini Clubman Bond Street will debut at the upcoming Geneva auto show in March before going into limited production later that month. Depending on the market up to four engines will be available, all linked to a standard six-speed manual gearbox or optional six-speed automatic.

While pricing has been made available in the U.K., they don't reflect what the Mini Clubman Bond Street will sell for here in Canada. Stay tuned…
