Mini John Cooper Works Paceman price

At the North American International Auto Show that takes now place in Detroit, a lot of carmakers have decided to present their latest achievements in terms of technology, design and so on. One of them is the German Mini, presenting the new MINI John Cooper Works Paceman.

The model uses a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine capable of generating 208 horsepower to move the car and has as standard ALL4 all-wheel drive system. Thanks to the lowered sports suspension and to an aerodynamic kit the model offers an irresistible feeling of race competition both to the driver and the passengers. The starting price was established at $36.200 and it is scheduled to go on sale in March this year. To send the output to the wheels, the engineers have provided a 6-speed manual transmission as standard and as an option customers can also opt for a 6-speed automatic. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds no matter which transmission the car uses. The estimated fuel consumption reaches 31 mpg on the highway, 25 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on a combined cycle for the manual transmission. For the automatic one, numbers change a little: 30 mpg on the highway, 23 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on a combined cycle.

As standard, the new MINI John Cooper Works Paceman includes an aerodynamic kit, 18-inch light-alloy wheels to send the power to the road, a sports exhaust system with chrome tailpipes and a lot more. The ALL4 all-wheel drive system developed for Mini uses an electromagnetic center differential to distribute drive between the front ad rear axles. This means power is always sent to the wheels where it can be translated most effectively into forward propulsion. This is all for now, folks.
