Vogue-Designed MINI Life Ball Roadster Raises €54K for Charity

Mini has helped raise money for the famous AIDS LIFE charity.

AIDS LIFE held their annual gala over the weekend, raising money for HIV prevention and education projects around the world. Every year Mini provides a special edition model for auction, with proceeds from the sale going directly to the charity. The Life Ball event, held in Vienna, Austria, auctioned off a one-off Mini Roadster designed by Italian Vogue editor and UN Goodwill Ambassador for "Fashion 4 Development," Franca Sozzani.

The exterior of the roadster was finished in matte purple and features high-gloss black wheels and grille. Gold Mini rally stripes and touches on the wheels give off a very elegant effect with a decorative floral theme moves from the roof into the interior for a terrific tie-in. "Flowers are a symbol of joy and life. And the Life Ball is always fighting for life and joy," said Sozzani. Check out the photos of the event in the gallery below.
