Official Premier: MINI Paceman Adventure (w/Gallery)

A few days ago we brought you an early look at the one-off Paceman Adventure. Today MINI has dropped the full details of the project including 124 photos giving us the best look yet at the car.

Official Release: A creative collaboration between young apprentices and their instructors at the BMWs plant in Munich and Dingolfing has produced a completely unique vision for MINI. Choosing the MINI Cooper S Paceman as their base model, the students transformed the car into a two seater with a pickup style cargo area. The powerful turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive ALL4 , a modified suspension and numerous unique features available mean this versatile car is ready for just about anything. The name: MINI Paceman Adventure.


This latest creative vision for the MINI brand demonstrates the level of talent at work amongst the BMW Group’s young apprentices. The MINI Paceman Adventure combines the drive technology of the 135 kW/184 hp MINI Cooper S Paceman ALL4 with an innovative two-seater pick-up vehicle concept. The passenger compartment ends behind the front seats where the spacious cargo area for luggage, tools and equipment begins. In addition, a solid roof rack can accommodate a spare wheel.

The MINI Paceman Adventure would be suitable for driving on gravel roads, through muddy tracks or on desert trails. The pickup has the typically MINI short overhangs, a modified chassis with extended ground clearance and much higher front and rear clearance ramps. The snorkel-like roof level air intake means that MINI Paceman Adventure could tackle a challenging river crossing.


Additional lights mounted on the front cross member of the roof rack optimize visibility at night, while special off-road tyres with wide and deep treads guarantee the perfect traction. The MINI Paceman Adventure features exclusive Jungle Green metallic paintwork.

The MINI Paceman Adventure is a true one-off and there are no plans for series production.

  • How about that trailer hitch?

        Thats the euro style trailer hitches, what can I say! Installed one on an Allroad once. The instructions at the end instructed to grab the hitch to make sure it was tight. Use your imagination with the image printed in the instructions 🙂

    Too bad – this would probably sell better than the current Paceman. Anyone having BRAT flashbacks?

    The snorkel coming out of the side scuttle is really cool.
