MINI Paceman previewed in official photos image

MINI has recently released some official photos with its latest creation, the production version of the Paceman, ahead of the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

After it was officially confirmed for production just a month ago and after it was caught testing on the famous German track, the Nurburgring, in July, the production version of the MINI Paceman is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the British based automaker releasing some images with the model wearing light camouflage on its body. The MINI Paceman is basically a Countryman Coupe with a unique tailgate and a sloping roofline, and its engine options are expected to be carried over from the Countryman.

The engine lineup will include the 1.6 liter four-cylinder with 120 HP, the 1.6 liter four-cylinder with 181 HP and also the JWC (John Cooper Works) 1.6 liter four-cylinder, producing 215 HP. Judging by the looks of the model, the MINI Paceman seems to be quite similar to the concept car which was revealed in Detroit earlier this year, which was 4,11 meters long, 1,79 meters wide and 1,54 meters tall. The final production version of the MINI Paceman is expected to be presented to the public during the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September, but there is no official word on this just yet.
