The British people at MINI considered the 2013 Detroit Motor Show a good opportunity to introduce the Paceman John Cooper Works model.
In the United States, the new hatchback comes with a 1.6-liter petrol engine offering 208 horsepower and is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission with a similar automatic gearbox being offered as well.
With these resources, the 0 – 100km/h sprint is possible in 6,5 seconds with a top speed of 204 km/h. EPA-estimated fuel economy figures are rated at 31mpg (highway), 25mph (city) and 27mpg (combined).
At the exterior, the new MINI Paceman JCW comes with a two-color finish, namely a black base with red accents, larger alloy wheels, red mirror caps and side stripes and much more.
The British company also released official pricing figures, American buyers having to pay $36,200 for the sportier variant of the MINI Paceman. According to the company, the price already includes a $700 delivery and handling fee.
