The latest model to wear the MINI logos on its body, the Paceman, has been recently caught on camera while it was being tested on the Nurburgring.
After officially confirming the Paceman name and announcing that the model will make its world debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September, the British based automaker is once again entering our news with the production version of the Paceman, after the vehicle has been caught on camera while it was being tested on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
Judging by the looks of the prototype, the design has remained almost unchanged when comparing it with the concept version revealed in Detroit earlier this year.
The MINI Paceman is expected to carry the same engine lineup from the Countryman, which will include the 1.6 liter four-cylinder unit with 120 HP and the 1.6 liter four-cylinder with 181 HP. A high performance version of the MINI Paceman, the JWC, is also set for production and this will use the 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine, producing 215 horsepower.
The concept version of the MINI Paceman was 4,11 meters long, 1,79 meters wide and 1,54 meters tall. The final production version of the model will be presented to the public in September, at the Paris Motor Show.
