Spy Shots—MINI Countryman Curves Inspired by Paceman Concept
Earlier in the year, Brenda Priddy and her team of shooters were informed that the MINI Paceman could hit dealerships as the Countryman Coupe. Judging by the photos provided by the group, it looks like that may be the case when the vehicle debuts at this year's Paris Motor Show.
Putting the Countryman name onto the two-door Paceman Concept makes sense for MINI, considering the production vehicle will share the same front end. Priddy says that it appears the Paceman Concept will closely resemble the final production Countryman Coupe, and it is still on schedule to hit dealerships in 2013 as a 2014 model.
While there is no confirmation on what will power the new Countryman Coupe, but the Paceman Concept had a John Cooper Works 1.6L twin turbocharged engine pushing 211 hp.
