The Clubman range from Lunar was very popular with buyers who wanted luxury, without the weight penalty. Here, we look at the Lunar Clubman CK.
Despite the brand’s recent history – the original firm went into administration in 2019, before being acquired by a new owner to trade as Lunar Automotive – these tourers are well worth consideration as pre-owned purchases. Many customers are attracted by their light weight and excellent spec level.
Lunar’s Clubman line-up had been around since the 1975 season, building a reputation as a well-crafted, well-equipped range of tourers.
With plenty of these models to be found on the forecourts, buyers in the market for a used example will have a wide range to choose from.
They still look modern, even though the 2016 design was into its third year by then. So what do you need to look out for in a secondhand buy?
By 2011, the Clubman’s profile was looking a little dated, so for 2013, an updated profile was introduced, which gave the exteriors a fresh new look.
The CK, available since the 1990s, was one of the firm’s best sellers over the years. It offered excellent living space for two on tour and by 2016, a luxurious interior, too.
A new feature for that year was the large sky view roof vent, housing an LED light surround. The washroom had a newly redesigned handbasin and a mirror with LED lighting, while the kitchen was fitted with a circular stainless-steel sink, and the lounge had new upgraded soft furnishings.
The exterior was refreshed with smart new decals, alloys, and a one-piece entrance door.
There were only four models in the Clubman range, but they were best-selling layouts, in particular for the 2016 season.
There are plenty of CKs to be found on the forecourts, so shop around before you make your choice, and keep an eye out for any useful extras. We did just that and found prices ranging from £13,995 to £14,995.
As for the rest, you can expect to pay:
- ES £15,495-£16,495
- SB £16,399-£16,995
- SE £16,295-£17,185
Lunar’s Clubman line-up was and still is very popular, with a loyal fan base. But there are plenty on the market if you are looking for a used model.
That also means buyers can take their time before they decide. As always, check all models carefully, especially to ensure there are no signs of damp being present. In addition, carry out all of the usual inspections, including those in our checklist.
It’s a sign of their popularity that demand is still out there for used Clubman’s – these are very comfortable tourers.
Thinking about other brands? In that case, you might like to take a look at the equally luxurious Swift Bessacarr 495, a stunning tourer with loads of kit – but this one is heavier than the Clubman. A 2016 Bessacarr will set you back around £15,495.
Or perhaps check out the super Coachman VIP 460/2, also from 2016: another luxury tourer for two, with a great end washroom, for £15,995.
