Although it sounds a little bit crazy, a group of young apprentices and their instructors created the MINI Paceman Adventure a.k.a. a MINI pick-up based on the Cooper S Paceman. The car was transformed from a coupe into a two seater with a pickup style cargo area. As you can see from the photos, the passenger compartment ends behind the front seats, while on the top there is a solid roof rack that accommodates a spare wheel.
Compared with the standard Paceman, the Paceman Adventure comes with an extended ground clearance and much higher front and rear clearance ramps. In addition, new lights were mounted on the front cross member of the roof rack, while a new set of special off-road tyres with wide and deep treads complete the looks.
The new MINI Paceman Adventure comes with the exclusive Jungle Green metallic paintwork, introduced for the first time on the 2015 MINI Paceman Facelift.
The vehicle you see in the photos is based on the 2015 MINI Cooper S Paceman ALL4, which means it is powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine with twin-scroll turbocharger, direct injection and fully variable valve control based on BMW’s Valvetronic Technology.
The 1.6-liter engine delivers 190 bhp (140 kW) at 5500 – 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 240 Nm at 1600 – 5000 rpm (260 Nm at 1700 – 4500 rpm with overboost function).
The standard vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.6 seconds (automatic: 8.0 seconds), while top speed is electronically limited at 217 km/h or 134.8 mph (215 km/h or 133.5 mph). Fuel consumption of this model is 6.4 litres/100 km (7.1 liters), while CO2 emissions are 148 g/km (165 g/km).
