Driving its way into the luxury cars category, automaker Mini has rolled out a new concept that will be unveiled at the forthcoming Detroit Motor Show in January. Dubbed the Mini Paceman, it is essentially a Coupe version based on the Clubman model. With its bulky body, Mini’s new model aims for the SUV status. Estimated at more than £22,000 ($34,000), this ‘Sports Activity Coupe’ will sport leather trimming on the exterior door handles and a leather pull tab on the gas cap cover.
Akin to the Countryman model, the Paceman Concept will drive in with an all-wheel-drive system biased toward the front wheels, capable of transferring 100 percent of power to the rear wheels. This new Mini baby will be fitted with the JCW’s 211bhp 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that will dole out 192lb-ft of torque. Though it is still a concept, I look forward to the Mini Paceman zooming about on the streets soon. Till then you can read about the world’s most expensive chrome Mini Cooper.
