The Paceman goes for an adventure

The creative minds at MINI are at work again. This time round, they created a pickup-like off-roader based on the Cooper S Paceman ALL4.

Dubbed the Paceman Adventure, the unique variant is the result of a creative collaboration between young apprentices and their instructors at the BMW plant in Munich and Dingolfing.

And while the idea of an off-roader is nothing new, the result is pretty spectacular if you ask us. The Adventure looks at home off the beaten tracks.

The two-seater pickup also seems to make light work fording in swampy terrain, no thanks to 184 horses sent to all wheels via the marque's ALL4 drive technology.

It is unlikely that the cargo area will do some serious loot tugging.

But otherwise, the Adventure comes equipped with proper stuffs to keep it going in the wild, such as a modified chassis with extended ground clearance and much higher front and rear clearance ramps. The snorkel-like air intake also suggests that it will rise up to the occasion should you encounter any river crossing.

Much to our disappointment, however, there are no plans for the Adventure to go for series production.

Nicholas is in the path where his passion and career are closely knitted. And no way is he screwing that up. Not even if a Porsche looks like a Beetle.

It's not a disappointment for MINI fans and owners loh. Don't think many want to see this go into production
