2013 MINI John Cooper Works Paceman priced at $36,200 in the US

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 17, 2013

It’s expected that when an all-new Mini model is presented, a John Cooper Works (JCW) version will follow. So it comes as no surprise that the Paceman, which made its debut at the Paris Motor Show last September, has been followed in Detroit by a Paceman JCW.

At Mini’s revised stand, there is one parallel to the floor while there’s another one perpendicular to it, linked to an asphalt road that rises up above the Mini stand.

The two are done in chili red and black, chili red roofs and mirror caps which are exclusive to JCW models. A Mini executive said during the press conference for the Paceman JCW that it offers on “the promise of a high-octane race feeling, even on the streets of the urban jungle.” It can deliver 208 hp and could go from zero to 60mph in 6.5 seconds.

When it arrives at dealerships this March, it will be priced at $36,200. But it’s no secret that JCW models are very expensive.

The Paceman JCW has been given upgrades that were also installed on the Countryman sibling, like window switches and a door lock button that have been shifted to the driver’s door panel from the previous unexpected location in the center stack.

In addition, the JCW has a very impressive set of exclusive 19-inch wheels. Patrick McKenna, Mini’s U.S. head of product strategy, pointed out that the wheels have to look great since they’re the “shoes of cars.”
