MINI Paceman Adventure concept by creative young apprentices

This wild MINI Paceman Adventure pickup concept is a collaboration between young apprentices and their instructors at the BMWs plant in Munich and Dingolfing.

Based on the Cooper S Paceman, the students turned the four seat and two door Paceman into a two seater with a pickup style cargo area at the rear for luggage, tools and equipment begins. A solid roof rack accommodates a spare wheel, giving the concept an even tougher look.

Power continues to come from a 181bhp 1.6-litre turbo that is mated a six-speed manual and all-wheel drive. There is also a modified suspension with extended ground clearance, special off-road tyres with wider and deeper treads, as well as a snorkel-like roof level air intake, meaning that MINI Paceman Adventure could tackle some deeper water.

For some real life off roading and river crossings, the electric system should be updated probably as well and if you think you have what it takes to turn your Paceman into this cool pickup, check out bestpartstore.co.uk for electric system options. Obviously a diesel version for it would be more suitable, but hey after all this here is a prototype and not a real production model.

For improved visibility there are additional lights mounted on the roof rack, while the rear lights carry over from the standard model and fit the new rear quite well.

Finished in exclusive Jungle Green metallic paintwork, the Paceman Adventure is a one-off concept and there are no plans for series production, though the conversion does not seem very hard, meaning a good coach builder could easily handle this.
