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.”
The Sports Activity Coupe is back. This new model brings back the compact sports model with more drive and strength. Elongated doors and an athletic downwards swooping roof give this car glamor, style, and prestige. The side windows blend beautifully back into the rear of the car and the wider, sturdy back of the car ensure that drivers feel safe and secure on the road. The tailgate helps to create the view of a sturdy rear.
MINI Paceman John Cooper Works is no stranger to enhancing performance and with this vehicle, it is no exception. An aerodynamic kit forms part of the vehicle and a strong, athletic front and bespoke side skirts give comfort in the form of efficient airflow. This is standard as part of the MINI Paceman John Cooper Works. In addition, the sports exhaust system boasts stainless steel tailpipe embellishers as part of the standard specification.
Eighteen-inch light alloy wheels come in Twin Spoke Black Burnished design and polished spoke fronts with black rim wells which make the car even more attractive. Additional options that can be added include 19-inch light alloy wheels in the incredible Cross-Spoke-Crusher design. So that you get your branding fix, the John Cooper Works logos appear throughout the car on the radiator, tailgate, door sills and side indicators.
Prospective car owners have choices to make when it comes to the color of the car with nine exterior paint shades to select from. As a special treat, Chili Red which is only allowed on John Cooper Works models applies here. Optional contrast paint finishes in White, Black and Chili Red can also be ordered for the Sports Stripes, roof and exterior mirror caps.
