The Canadian crowds will be pleased when they drop by the MINI exhibit at this year’s Canadian International Auto Show. Plenty of eye-popping boldness can be found in MINI’s Paceman concept car – the “X6 of the MINI lineup” as we have coined it.

Fraught with organic design details including its earthen color scheme and natural finishes (we particularly enjoy the leather clad exterior door handles) this MINI returns to the colour schemes of yesteryear which had fallen out of fashion for a time – but leave it to MINI to turn Fashion on its head. Of course, its bold green paint is a tribute to British racing heritage but in a new take – its metallic finish is modern, eye catching, and stylish.

This “Paceman” concept car is fitted with MINI’s 1.6 liter John Cooper Works engine spinning out 208 hp and the Countryman’s new All Wheel Drive system. Expect brisk performance with a mix of versatility and a side of style when a (likely) production version makes it to showrooms.
