Paul Weller-designed MINI  Cooper Special Edition for charity auction

The mod rock legend Paul Weller has accepted an agreement with the MINI in order to develop some charity actions with the creation of a one off car which is planned to be sold in a live global online auction and the money obtained will go to charity funds. Paul Weller has always loved having and driving a MINI and his wish was to create something that could successfully reflect the colors and mood associated with the Mod era. Thus, Paul Weller created a unique design for the Mini Cooper, which was built in Oxford and hand-painted by MINI craftsmen. The car features black leather upholstery for the interior, 17-inch Crown Spoke Alloys and front heated seats. Starting with the 11th of November, the car is going to be auctioned for one month with the money given to charities Nordoff Robins, which is a charity organisation that uses music to change in better the lives of kids and adults, and War Child, which is an amazing organization making considerable efforts to provide protection for kids living in the world's most dangerous places, such as Iraq, Afghanistan, DRC and Uganda. Weller's great inspiration can be noticed in the beautiful design which features bold pink and brown stripes across the car's body, while the MINI UK's Director, Jochen Goller stated that Paul Weller and MINI proved to be the perfect match, achieving magnificent results.
