Mini has been concerned with Life Ball, one of Europe's largest charitable trust events, since the brand first bowed in 2001. This year, the auto manufacturer turned a make new Mini Roadster over to Franca Sozzani, chief of Italian Vogue, for a absolute makeover. Sozzani dished the changeable 2 doors in matte Deepest Purple paint with contrasting rally stripes and added steel accents on the side mirrors and wheels to help set the machine apart from the normal version. The charitable trust car also sports a distinctive floral design on the cover and Mini will auction off the particular Roadster at the Hall of Ceremonies at Vienna's Hofburg palace. Life Ball emphasizes the fight against AIDS and the celebrity-studded event features live music and a fashion show, and Mini say that sales of its past Life Ball models have raised over $654,000 for AIDS research.
