MINI Paceman John Cooper WorksPosted by: Matt Iasenzaniro onJanuary 14th, 2013
You may remember my article about the new MINI Paceman, wondering what the point of it was. Wondering what hole it filled and what demographic is was aimed towards. I never got answers to those questions but, whatever the answers are, MINI has added “Wannabe Race Car Driver” to the list with the Paceman John Cooper Works.
You get the same 208 horsepower engine and all wheel drive as the eleventy other MINI models. But it’s bigger, but with less doors. MINI’s just beating a dead horse now. They clearly didn’t care very much about it either because they didn’t bother covering the thing up. There was no point in showing up for the press release because we just grabbed some pictures ahead of time.
