Article by Christian Andrei, on January 26, 2011

A new special edition of the Cooper hatchback has recently been introduced by MINI to the French market. Only 250 units of the model, which boasts of several unique modifications, will be produced. The vehicle has a matt black finish and it has been customized with checked mirror covers, new side vents plus a numbered key ring.

The number to the key ring corresponds to its number in the entire production. According to the company, the new limited-edition will be offered with all engines offered across the standard lineup, which includes the 1.6-liter with 118 hp, the 1.6-liter turbo with 208 hp and the 1.6-liter diesel with 110 hp.

The package has a price tag of EUR 2,800. Meanwhile, the Paceman concept showcased at the 2011 North American International Auto Show has received a lot of attention.

This concept, which is expected to enter production this year, has been equipped with a John Cooper Works 1.6 liter twin-scroll turbocharged four-cylinder unit that offers 211 hp and a maximum torque of 280 Nm (207 lb-ft), which also comes with an Overboost function.

It is unclear whether these features will be seen on the production model however, the concept features a bold appearance.

Its new design cues include large headlights with chrome details, a new bonnet and a front grille that was inspired by that of the Cooper S Countryman. [via worldcarfans]
