MINI's latest Paceman Adventure pickup truck has come forward, and it is not a concept per-se but a creative project made by the young apprentices at BMW's plants in Munich and Dingolfing.
An all-wheel drive Cooper S Paceman with a 182hp (184PS) turbocharged mill was chosen as the base for the two-seater pickup-style vehicle that gains an exclusive Jungle Green metallic paintwork, a cargo bed with a functional tail gate, and a solid roof rack with a set of auxiliary lights and a spare tire.
According to MINI: "The 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."
