MINI Paceman going to L.A. Auto Show image

The British based automaker MINI has recently announced its plans to introduce the Paceman to the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show later on this month.

After it was officially presented to the public just a couple of months ago, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the MINI Paceman is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the British based automaker announcing its United States debut, which has been scheduled for November 28, during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. According to the car manufacturer, the MINI Paceman will share the same space with the MINI JCW GP during the North American automotive event.

As a quick reminder, the MINI Paceman, which is actually an SAC (Sports Activity Coupe), is powered by a 1.6 liter naturally aspirated engine, which is producing a total output of 121 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 118 lb-ft. The turbocharged version of the model, the Cooper S Paceman, is getting 181 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque from the same 1.6 liter engine, but the torque figure can increase up to 192 lb-ft in overboost. Additional details on the MINI Paceman will be announced during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
