2013 MINI Life Ball Paceman news, pictures, specifications, and information

Roberto und Eva Cavalli unveil the Life Ball MINI 2013.

Munich/Vienna. For the 13th consecutive year, MINI has donated one of its models to the Life Ball to be styled by an internationally renowned designer for a good cause. 2013 sees the MINI Paceman endowed wîth the creative signature of Roberto Cavalli. A few hours before the start of the AIDS charity event on 25 May, the Italian fashion designer and his wife unveiled the one-off MINI during the official Life Ball Press Conference. As part of the AIDS Solidarity Gala in Vienna's Hofburg Palace, the Life Ball MINI 2013 will be auctioned from 17 hrs on, wîth the proceeds benefiting projects committed to combating AIDS. Tonight at Life Ball's magenta carpet Roberto Cavalli will present the MINI to the public.

The design of the Life Ball MINI 2013 by Roberto Cavalli.
A first glimpse of the Life Ball MINI 2013 unquestionably reveals the distinctive style of the famous fashion designer. Cavalli upgraded the exterior of the MINI Paceman – the youngest and seventh member of the MINI family – wîth an exclusive colour that has already featured in his own fleet of cars: a special iridescent paint that shimmers between black and brown depending on the incidence of light. This flamboyant paintwork accentuates the clear lines of the first Sports Activity Coupé by MINI and turns it into a very special one-off. The expressive Cavalli logo on the roof of the car along wîth his signature on the wide coupé door leave no doubt as to the designer who has left his unmistakable imprint on the car. The logo can also be found on the inside, where the headrests and sun visors feature the stylish motif. The interior design of the

MINI Paceman is swathed in black, wîth individual gilded elements – such as the decorative stitching on the leather seats and the MINI Center Speedo surround – lending it an extravagant look. This is further reinforced by the hallmark Cavalli animal prints on the leather-lined §teering wheel and parts of the instruments.
