MINI Paceman Concept revealed ahead of Detroit debut

MINI has released first details about the Paceman concept, which will make its public debut at the the Detroit Auto Show on 10 January.

The Paceman Concept is basically a Countryman coupe minus rear doors. Based on the same platform it even uses the same windscreen, though it is 20mm lower. Exterior highlights are bold front fascia, long doors, a sloping roofline, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the Paceman uses almost the same interior as the Countryman, the seats are redesigned and the rear ones are individually shaped though manufactured in one piece.

The concept features a tuned version of the John Cooper Works petrol engine with 211bhp mated to Mini’s ALL4 permanent four-wheel drive system used in the Countryman.

This new sporty compact coupe is still a concept, but will very likely enter production in 2012. For full details see the press release below.
