We don't know how they did it, but Mini Cooper has designed a tiny truck that is somehow rugged enough to cross rivers and go mudding, yet so stinkin' cute that if it had cheeks, we would pinch them.

The little pickup was designed by the young apprentices and their instructors at the BMW plant in Munich, Germany, based on Mini's available Mini Cooper S Paceman model.

Designated the MINI Paceman Adventure, the vehicle has a modified chassis with extended ground clearance, cargo area extending beyond the two front seats, and a turbocharged engine. 

Unfortunately for drivers looking for a MINI Adventure of their own, the model was a one-off design and the company has no plans for production. 

But, it's so cute!
