Purple and Gold: 2012 Life Ball Mini RoadsterMay 23rd, 2012
Have you ever dreamed of driving a Purple MINI with Gold stripes? Franca Sozzani, chief editor of Italian Vogue decorated a 2012 MINI Roadster S like this just for you! Presented at the 2012 Life Ball charity event in Vienna, Austria, this vehicle is a one off auctioned for charity at €54,000 to an unnamed buyer. This Roadster S is dipped in a rich matte paint called “deepest purple” completed with gold stripes and various floral motifs. “The concept behind the MINI customisation is inspired by the beautiful and elegant women who in the past used to wear a scarf draped around their head when driving a convertible,” says Sozzani, who is also the UN Goodwill Ambassador for Fashion 4 Development.
