BMW has revealed the results of a design study headed by its young apprentices in the form of the Mini Paceman Adventure concept.
Starting with a standard Paceman coupé, the young designers have done away with half of the car in order to create a Mini Pick Up complete with permanent four-wheel drive and a turbocharged engine.
To maximize cargo space in the back, what little is left of the car’s roof gets a permanent rack for carrying a spare wheel.
The team responsible has overhauled the suspension set-up and boosted the ground clearance so that the car really could cope with everything from muddy fields to fording rivers — it even has a snorkel to ensure water-free air can still get to the engine when the vehicle is partially submerged.
The effect is topped off by a row of roof-mounted spotlights and a coat of ‘Jungle Green’ metallic paint. MINI confirmed that the Paceman Adventure is strictly a one-off and there are no plans for series production.
