Category: Technology Published on 13 Dec, 2012 Tags: , , ,

The MINI Paceman John Cooper Works combines mouthwatering sporting flair and inimitable style to introduce a new dimension in driving fun to the premium compact segment. Its race-bred powertrain and chassis technology create a recipe for smile-inducing agility, and the overall concept of the first Sports Activity Coupé in its class gives it an immediate, show-stealing impact. The MINI Paceman John Cooper Works transfers the power developed by its 160 kW/218 hp four-cylinder turbocharged engine to the road with poise and assurance, courtesy of its standard ALL4 all-wheel-drive system. Lowered sports suspension and an aerodynamic kit also play their part in bringing an irresistible feeling of race competition to the driver and passengers in their four individual seats.

The MINI Paceman John Cooper Works celebrates its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January 2013; its market launch will follow in March 2013. The new arrival swells the John Cooper Works ranks to seven models. The MINI Paceman John Cooper Works’s driving characteristics and design ensure it will stand out from the crowd in city traffic, as well as being the car of choice when maximum driving fun over longer distances is the order of the day. Instantaneous power delivery and an unquenchable appetite for revs define the engine under the bonnet of the MINI Paceman John Cooper Works. The turbocharged power unit teams up with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard; a six-speed automatic can be ordered as an option.

The MINI Paceman John Cooper Works sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.9 seconds with either of the gearbox variants. Yet despite this intoxicating turn of speed, fuel economy is exemplary for its output class. The MINI Paceman John Cooper Works posts average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of 7.4 litres (automatic: 7.9 litres) per 100 kilometres / 38.2 (35.8) mpg imp.

The distinctive character of the MINI Paceman John Cooper Works is underlined by bespoke design features. Standard specification includes an aerodynamic kit, 18-inch light-alloy wheels, a sports exhaust system with chrome tailpipes, and door sills bearing the John Cooper Works logo. As well as white and black, the exclusive Chili Red paint finish can also be specified as an option for the contrast-colour roof and exterior mirror caps. And customers can also lend an extra edge to the typical John Cooper Works sports car feeling inside the car with bespoke accents such as Chili Red interior trim strips.
