Paul Weller MINI Cooper - a one-off car for charity
Last week, MINI and the famous mod rock legend Paul Weller have announced a collaboration project aimed at raising money for two charities - Nordoff Robins and War Child. The project represents an exclusively styled, one-off MINI Cooper ride designed by Paul Weller, which will be auctioned online and all the proceeds will be divided between the two charities.
Based upon a MY2009 MINI Cooper, Paul Weller's MINI ride boasts a fresh exterior color mixture that features bold pink and brown stripes across the car's entire body and a single silver line running up the bonnet and over the roof. Further highlights of the unique British vehicle icon include sleek 17-inch Crown Spoke Alloys, black leather upholstery, Bluetooth, front heated seats, and Chili Pack.
Paul Weller shares: "I've always loved and driven MINIs so when I was given the opportunity to design a bespoke Mini Cooper I wanted to create something that reflected the mood and colours associated with the Mod era, which was also the classic Mini's hey day. I'd already expressed these colours in a shirt I designed for Ben Sherman a few years ago, so it made sense to me to continue the theme using a MINI Cooper as a palate.
