DSQUARED is a Canadian design studio created by Dean and Dan Caten. The twin brothers have announced a restyled version of MINI Cooper S.

It features front guard, rally headlamps, tinted side windows with grilles and the spare tyre on the tailgate. There are also a set of deep-tread all-terrain tyres, a compass and floormats made of structured aluminium. All these elements antly evoke a sense of adventure.

Every year, MINI supports Europe's biggest AIDS charity event. And every year a one-off MINI is created for the Life Ball, the proceeds of which support projects combating HIV/AIDS. Since 2001 more than half a million euros has been generated by these specially styled Life Ball MINI models on behalf of Aids Life.

"MINI has been a partner of the Life Ball for 11 years and each year it demonstrates anew its creativity, enthusiasm and passion for this good cause. This year's Life Ball MINI designed by DSQUARED² provides further persuasive evidence of this.", commented Gery Keszler, the founder and organiser of the Life Ball.
