2004 Other Mini Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 44000 miles

my mini has been suddering when pulling away
in st gear, 15 months ago it had a new gear box, 2nd one in fact, now yesterday after shuddering a lot in traffic after a long drive, and so the car was hot, there was a smell of burning plastic ! And then smoke from the bonnet, then broke down and had to be pushed. Now it is dead, will not start, and had to be towed to a garage. Do u think this could be the clutch.
If so any idea of the cost
