Mini makes one-off Paceman ute

Tough number: The rugged little Mini Paceman Adventure has looks fit for a desert-adventurer.

Cheeky one-off, rough-and-tumble Mini Paceman all-wheel-drive ute concept revealed

MINI has released images of a truly one-off rough and ready ute called the Paceman Adventure that looks ready for a bout of continent-hopping.

No, this is not a belated month-late April Fools’ Day prank but rather the handiwork of a team of Mini apprentices and their instructors in Germany.

Based on the 135kW all-wheel-drive Cooper S ALL4 version of the Paceman, the Adventure features modified suspension giving extra ground clearance and better departure angles, a snorkel, off-road tyres and roof-mounted spotlights.

The re-fabricated body retains the front portion of the two-door Paceman, but sees the gawky rear passenger area ditched in favour of a checker-plate steel tub.

In addition, the roof-mounted racks can hold a full-sized spare tyre, and the package is finished in black and Jungle Green paintwork.

However, those buyers who see potential here for a European re-imagining of the beloved Subaru Brumby, hold the phone – Mini has no plans to make it, relegating it to the concept scrapheap alongside the likes of its Rocketman supermini from 2011.

“The Mini Paceman Adventure is a true one-off and there are no plans for series production,” the company said.
