MOTORINGFILE/BIMMERFILE is breaking the news tonight. MINI has released images/details on their newest concept car dubbed the Paceman. This car is exactly what it looks like, a two door countryman. Think of it this way, the Paceman is to the Countryman as the BMW X6 is to the X5.
The paceman is more sporty compared to its countryman counterpart not only by the loss of two doors, but the car has a 20mm lower roofline and runs on 19" wheels.
According to Motoringfile, there are as yet no plans for production, but to me it sounds like production plans would be based on the reaction to this concept....
