Guilty pleasure: Mini Clubman John Cooper Works edition

Not exactly deserving of our stamp of approval – a base price of > $31K for this car is an eyewatering sum – but at least one of us continues to remain intrigued, especially when dressed in this handsome brown.

Still, once we get over the sticker shock, and the fact that there are dozens, perhaps even hundreds of other cars new and used that would probably make better buys on one or more of practical, emotional, and/or performance grounds, we quickly snap back to reality.

It does makes for visually attractive yuppie urban transport, though (although we would be somewhat embarrassed to openly admit).
