MINI rolls out stunning Paceman Adventure concept vehicle

BMW announced today that they have cooked up a new AWD MINI prototype -- dubbed the MINI Paceman Adventure -- which will leave the off-road, overlanding and RVing fraternity positively drooling. A creative collaboration between budding BMW apprentices and their instructors at the Bayerische Motoren Werke plants in Munich and Dingolfing, this new incarnation of the iconic British passenger vehicle maintains Mini’s innovative track record in the development of camping themed concept vehicles -- like the Clubvan Camper, the Cowley and the Countryman ALL4 Camp -- that could perhaps (with a little bit of executive arm twisting) be destined for the European and U.S. RVing marketplace.

Based on the turbocharged 184 hp AWD MINI Cooper S Paceman, the diminutive passenger car has been transformed into a bruising two-seater pickup with an abundance of camping mojo. The vehicle’s modified suspension provides additional ground clearance, along with higher front and rear clearance ramps, whilst the off-road tyres provide extra traction and the innovative roof level air intake makes fording rivers a breeze.

MINI is certainly no stranger when it comes to partnering with well known RV companies. Previous camping projects have included a concept Airstream travel trailer -- designed by the Republic of Fritz Hansen, a stunning MINI branded Camp Runner Alpina DLX teardrop trailer (dubbed the MINI Cowley teardrop camper), and a bespoke MINI Countryman with a Columbus Variant roof-top tent (the ALL4 Camp). Sadly, the bigwigs at BMW report that the MINI Paceman Adventure is destined to be a one-off prototype with no plans for series production.
