Mini Cooper has released a few details about its new car, the Paceman, just ahead of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The cars are known for being small yet zippy on the busy city roads and the Paceman is no exception.
By the looks of it, MINI are planning to make a new addition to their line of vehicles with the new MINI Cooper S Diesel. Aimed at higher-end consumers, other than the 1.6 litre turbocharged diesel engine (outputting between 140 and 150hp), the new Cooper S shows off two central tailpipes, an upgraded front bumper design, a new bonnet scoop and a few other details that MINI has failed to confirm for now. What’s a certainty though, this Cooper S Diesel will definitely deliver the same experience that they’ve used us with. Looks cool! What do you guys think? [via WCF]
MINI is turning 50. The guys are going to celebrate with a limited edition MINI WC50 that not only says “Happy Birthday” but also pays homage to John Cooper’s 1959 F1 Title. Under the hood nothing changed but if you take a closer look to the outside, it features bi-xenon lights, an aero kit with a carbon fiber bonnet scoop, carbon fiber mirror caps and a stylish rear diffuser. With only 250 units only meant for Europe, the green MINI WC50 is an interesting addition that will definitely cause head turns on the streets. [via TFTS]
The boys at ABF got their hands on a new toy, Mini Cooper S, and managed to turn it into a real beast that outputs nothing less than 650 hp. I still wonder where they packed all these horses because that’s a really small car that only weighs 795 kg and they installed a large turbocompressor and an intercooler that boosted power from the standard 172 hp. Could that be the world’s fastest Mini ever? Sure is and I certainly love it.
