Pictures Of New Mini Paceman Leaked Whoops

Who would ever have thought that a MINI would be competing with a Range Rover? With the recent leak of the new MINI Paceman, this seems to be the case. The European Patent Office leaked the photos, which were picked up and published by a popular U.S. blog site.

Pacemans are scheduled to begin appearing on showroom floors in the UK sometime in 2012.

The January 2011 Detroit Motor Show provided consumers with their first look at this vehicle. BMW board member Ian Robertson gave the green light for production at around that time. The car displayed at the auto show was a near-production model.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the leaked photos depict a vehicle nearly identical to the one from the show.

Three doors and a sweeping roofline distinguish this car from the Countryman model on which it is based. The Paceman will be built in the Mangan Steyr factory in Graz, Austria, which produces the Countryman. Both vehicles will share the same engines, including a 1.6-liter turbocharged, two wheel, and four wheel drive versions. From its design to its inner workings, this car is undoubtedly a MINI.

A hatchback style coupe and a new convertible roadster are scheduled to roll off MINI production lines before the Paceman. This gives anyone who qualifies only for bad credit car finance plenty of time to improve credit standing.

Car loans with the lowest interest rates are offered to car buyers with the highest credit scores so improving the score will help save money on the purchase.

The Paceman is being called a crossover coupe and one need not look far to find photos regarding the concept version. In coming months, many spy photos should be released regarding the production model.

According to some reports, the Paceman will have an annual production goal of 20,000 units.
