The Mini John Cooper Works Paceman model has launched
The British car manufacturer Mini have been well known right the way around the world since their original debut back in 1959. They started off as one of the companies with the smallest vehicles on offer around the world. Over the years they have achieved much success and as of late we have noticed that their vehicle additions have certainly grown larger.
Models such as the Cooper and the One have proven to be some of the best sellers for the mass manufacturer also so as the original Mini which customers will still pay a lot of money for. Today though we take a look into the grand launch of a new larger model from the company which comes in the form of the John Cooper Works Paceman. This vehicle is one of the firms larger models and it is officially on sale right now here in the UK and around other parts of the world also. In the past the Paceman has proven to be a healthy source of competition going up against the likes of the Range Rover Evoque but this brand new addition to the line up could very well prove to be another vehicle that keeps the competition on their toes.
What gives the John Cooper Works Paceman that added edge?
Well the majority of changes to this particular addition of the Paceman consists of the engine and overall performance rates. With this new model we see the welcome addition of a 1.6 litre, four cylinder, turbo engine that is capable of allowing the car to travel at top speeds of 142 miles per hour with a 0 to 62 mph sprint time being achieved in just 6.9 seconds. A standard six speed manual transmission system also helps this particular vehicle produce 215 brake horse power and the JCW Paceman is made available as a four wheel drive variant. With the power of the new Paceman taken into play we see this model as some top flight competition for the likes of the Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The brand new cost on this JCW Paceman model comes in at a total of £29,440. In regards to when you can make the purchase on this particular model, expect to make the purchase right now from your local Mini dealer/showroom.
