The JCW Paceman will take center stage at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI January 2013. It receives a power boost of 28 extra ponies over the Cooper Paceman S model with a total of 208hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. The car also comes standard in the ALL4 all-wheel drive system and is available in a six-speed manual gear box or an automatic six-speed. 0-60mph is completed in a brisk 6.5s and a top speed of 127mph for US bound models. EPA estimates the MPG at 31 highway / 25 city / 27 combined for the manual transmission and 30 highway / 23 city / 26 combined for an automatic equipped model.

What's a JCW model with out some style? Outside a new aero body-kit is fitted including a new front air dam, side skirts, wheel arches are wider, hood scoop, rear spoiler and rear apron all receive the JCW special treatment. Chrome exhaust tips and exclusive Cross-Spoke Crusher design 19" wheels are fitted on the car as well.

The suspension is lowered by 10mm and paired with a upgraded braking system that provide ultimate handling on the larger model. Making the car feel right at home in the go-kart handling DNA set by its smaller older cousin the JCW Cooper S.
