Scrambler is an old term used to describe the type of road bikes turned into all-terrain motorcycles – something like ‘cross country’ in cars, with MINI now borrowing the term for a new concept based on the Clubman All4.
Created by MINI’s Italian arm, it draws inspiration from BMW’s production R nineT Scrambler bike flaunting similar aesthetics by combining a Frozen grey paint scheme with matte black details and trimmings on the outside, and a two-tone caramel and black interior.
The Clubman All4 Scrambler Concept rides on a jacked up suspension and chunky off-road rubber that wrap around black alloy wheels, gaining additional plastic cladding on the lower parts of the body and wheel arches, together with auxiliary lights on the front that are reminiscent of the Mini rally cars, and a luggage rack on the roof.
In contrast to the toughened exterior, the cabin is all about chic details and a luxurious atmosphere, as it’s dressed in a combination of high-end Nappa leather and Alcantara.
While its appearance exaggerates its true off-road capabilities, the concept is undeniably cool to look at, and let’s face it – that’s what really counts for the majority of mainstream buyers these days, which makes us wonder if MINI should take this idea and apply it on a production model.
