Agent Provocateur is designing the new Life Ball MINI as a sort of police vehicle: painted black, with typical contrasting pink stripe highlights

MINI and Life Ball have been synonymous for eight consecutive years now, and this years unique MINI will be designed by cult lingerie label Agent Provocateur, founded by Serena Rees and her husband, Vivianne Westwood's son, Joseph Corre.

The Life Ball MINI 2008 will be auctioned through eBay from 5 to 15 June 2008 in further aid of Life Ball, Europe's largest AIDS charity event to be helt on 17 May 2008.

"I love the highly erotic yet stylish pin-up look of Agent Provocateur!", says Life Ball initiator Gery Keszler. The Agent Provocateur MINI will feature a black paint and pink 'police' paint scheme, reflective rear window, prison bars in the side door windows, fishnet stocking roof decal and a black leather interior with 'stimulating' details.

So far, MINI Life Ball cars designed by fashion icons as Missoni, Ferré and Versace have fetched over Euro 260,000 in aid of the charity.
