The latest Life Ball MINI is created by the gifted Franca Sozzani, who is the chief editor of Italian VOGUE and UN Goodwill Ambassador for Fashion 4 Development.

He describes the creative process and speaks about the inspiration which has provoked this unique design the following: "I thought at MINI as a beautiful woman who put a scarf on her head when she drives a Roadster."

The Deepest Purple matt paintwork gives the MINI Roadster a thoroughly unmistakable look as are doing floral motifs and mannequins. Nevertheless the highlight of this year's Life Ball MINI is the floral design on the roof of the MINI Roadster.

As you can see there are also added some steel-coloured accents on the exterior mirrors and alloy wheels. The typical MINI rally stripes are also in the same colour and they elegantly round off this unusual colour concept.

On the other hand the interior of the car is said to include the highest-quality of materials and a sophisticated seat design.
