The R55 was introduced in Cooper and Cooper S versions and is referred to as the Clubman. This slightly longer MINI model provides more rear-seat leg room and increased cargo
space when compared to the Hardtop. It has twin "barn doors" (alternately
referred to as "the Splitdoor") enclosing the boot instead of a pull-up
hatch. Another unique feature of the R55 is the "Clubdoor" on the right-hand side - making this model a three door MINI with front and rear seats.
