Yes! The stationwagon has arrived; although not from Great Britain or Germany but from Italy. It is built by Carrozzeria Castagna and is slighty longer than the original. What does it cost? If you have to ask you cannot afford it.

A great idea, and is also in keeping with the old mini wagon. I like the leather, but some of the other colour schemes look like they were thought up whilst the designers were on some rather strong controlled substances! I would be interested if I had kids, and if they had a super-charged option.

As the owner of both a MINI Cooper S and a 60's classic Mini Traveller (wagon) I am somewhat in shock. It's like two cars in my garage mated when I wasn't looking (and I would have liked to see that!) and the offspring is now growing up in Italy. :p

For all the trouble they went to in making a longer body, I would have thought they would have changed the hatch design. Perhaps either a horizontal split with the lower half of acting as drop down tailgate -- or... a vertical split with twin doors opening to either side as on the classic Mini estate cars.

Full points for the guts to do it!

Same here! Looks good to me.

Gotta have the barn doors, or it just isn't right.

Hope I can get one some day.
