Mini calls it a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC), but really it’s just a two-door Countryman.A new MINI design concept will make its debut at the 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) which will be held between January 10 and 23, 2011.

Large headlights with chrome surrounds extend deep into the front wings and, together with the distinctively contoured bonnet, emphasise the imposing nose of the Paceman.The MINI Paceman Concept retains the familiar MINI family frontal appearance but adds its own distinctive flavour.

In archetypal MINI style, the Paceman has extremely short front and rear overhangs to facilitate the familiar go kart driving responses.The MINI Paceman Concept measures 4,110 millimetres in length, 1,789 millimetres in width and 1,541 millimetres in height.

The MINI John Cooper Works 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbocharged engine gives the MINI Paceman Concept the capacity to deliver the outstanding performance its appearance promises.This 16 valve, four cylinder unit develops 211 hp and generates maximum torque of 260 Nm (192 lb-ft), the latter value having the capacity to reach 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) in brief bursts thanks to the Overboost function.It also has the Countryman’s ALL4 full-time all-wheel-drive.

The “masculine sporting nature” of the Paceman is emphasized by the dark wheel arch surrounds and side skirts wrapping 19-inch wheels.This new “urban and masculine” features traditional Mini styling cues like the Countryman’s radiator grille and oversize headlamps.Additional air intakes in the bumper provide improved brake ventilation.
