The MINI John Cooper Works Paceman All4 comes with the familiar 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 214 hp (160 kW) and 207 lb-ft (280 Nm) - increased to 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) with overboost. The JCW Paceman All4 can run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6.9 seconds, regardless if it has the standard 6-speed manual or the optional 6-speed automatic transmission. Fitted with the manual, this Mini can reach a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h) while with the automatic it does 139 mph (223 km/h).
The standard all-wheel-drive system is fully variable and can send up to 100 percent of its power to the rear wheels. Tangible performance upgrades include a lowered sports suspension with a high-performance braking system; a louder performance exhaust with chrome outlets; and unique 18-inch aluminum wheels - 19-inch wheel option also is available.
Yet despite this intoxicating turn of speed, fuel economy is exemplary for its output class. The MINI John Cooper Works Paceman 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.
Mini's new Paceman is essentially a coupe version of the Countryman, and though it features a sleek two-door body it still comes with four seats inside.
Only 2,000 will be built worldwide, and unfortunately it is rumored that only 500 of these are coming to North America.
