With the Coupe and Roadster officially launched, MINI is turning their attention to the MINI Coupe – aka the Paceman. No the official name has yet to be announced but MINIUSA’s internal documents are calling it the Paceman so we’ll stick with that until we see Countryman Coupe in bold type on an official MINI website.
What we do know will be the launch colors of both the Cooper and Cooper S Paceman. While both will be offered with the full gamut of Countryman colors, each will have a unique color that will be featured on launch cars seen in the press and on dealer lots.
The Cooper will be offered with Copper metallic – a deep orange. The Cooper S will be available with the exclusive Starlight blue metallic which is similar to Laser Blue. Launch cars will come exclusively with those two colors and a set interior color combination for both. However unlike the Countryman launch cars, dealers will be able to modify other options available on the cars.
Look for the Paceman to make a digital launch followed by a public debut in Paris this September. Production should commence in Austria this September with deliveries in the US likely around the end of the year.
