Cavalli-styled MINI Paceman donated to Life Ball 2013 charity event

MINI has donated one of its vehicle models to the Life Ball charity event for the 13th straight year. For this year, the carmaker donated a MINI Paceman styled by internationally renowned designer Roberto Cavalli. The world-renowned Italian fashion designer and his wife unveiled the Cavalli-styled MINI Paceman a few hours before the AIDS charity event on May 25, 2013 at the official Life Ball Press Conference.

The Life Ball MINI 2013 was placed on the hammer as part of the AIDS Solidarity Gala in Vienna’s Hofburg Palace. Proceeds of the auction will go to projects committed to fighting AIDS.

The Life Ball MINI 2013 indeed carries Cavalli’s unique designing style. Cavalli enhanced the exterior of the MINI Paceman with an exclusive color – which goes between black and brown depending on lighting -- that could only be found in his own fleet of vehicles.

This flashy paintwork highlights the clear lines of the MINI Paceman, turning the youngest and seventh member of the MINI family into a very special one-off.

The car’s roof bears the expressive Cavalli logo while its wide coupé door carries the Italian designer’s signature, leaving no doubt who styled this flamboyant vehicle.

The Cavalli logo is also found inside the MINI Paceman’s cabin, in which the stylish motif is accentuated on the headrests and sun visors. The MINI Paceman’s interior is covered in black while featuring gilded elements like the decorative stitching on the leather seats and the MINI Center Speedo surround.

The extravagant look of the car’s interior is further enhanced by the hallmark Cavalli animal prints on the leather-lined steering wheel and parts of the instruments.
