Here’s one MINI vehicle you won’t see at any MINI Cooper dealers. For the 13th year in a row, MINI is donating one of its models to the Vienna Life Ball for its auction. The Life Ball is certainly a good cause as it goes towards AIDS awareness and education. As in previous years, however, MINI didn’t simply donate a regular model.

Once again MINI gave its donated vehicle a slick makeover. Like previous years, the redesign was done by an internationally renowned designer. This time, that designer is Roberto Cavalli, and he worked on the newest MINI model, the MINI Paceman.

The combination of a high-quality MINI model with a designer’s artistic signature has helped generate sizable donations to the Life Ball previously. This year will certainly be no exception.

According to Roberto Cavalli, “This MINI was an exciting and wonderful project for me. It gave me the opportunity to be creative and finally use something very special, which I have personally invented and already used for years on my own vehicles.”

That special touch is a unique iridescent paint that changes color depending on the way the light illuminates the pigments. On the roof, the MINI also sports the Cavalli logo, which further adds to the uniqueness of this MINI.

At Orlando MINI, we think it’s great that MINI is such a strong supporter of the Life Ball. Each year, it donates such a fantastic model, which is made even more unique by the creative eye of a well-renown designer.
