    Look at this: Mini has posted official 'spy shots' of the 2013 Paceman to its Facebook page. Cheeky Germans. As we know, the Paceman is coming early next year as a late-to-market 2013 model.

    Spy Shots: Mini Countryman JCW rolls at the 'Ring
    1310052480

    Mini has established a pretty successful formula for its lineup. The party gets started with a base model, followed by a slightly more athletic S variant.

Judging from a handful of spy photos ...

    As is traditionally the case for BMW's revived Mini range, the new Countryman crossover will be offered with an optional Aero Kit that makes the 'ute look much more aggressive and might even do a wee bit for aerodynamic performance.
