Twin-brothers Canadian designer team create a one-off MINI Cooper for the Life Ball in Vienna to raise money for AIDS charities.

Canadian designers Dean and Dan Caten of the fashion house DSQUARED² have introduced their Life Ball MINI 2011 at the Life Ball event in Vienna, Austria.

The twin-brothers remade their MINI Cooper S into the MINI Cooper Red Mudder by raising the chassis and adding all terrain tires to make for a more rugged look. They also added a new front guard, rally headlamps, tinted side windows with mesh grilles and a spare tire for the tailgate.

On the inside is a compass and floormats made of aluminum sheeting. The DSQUARED maple-leaf logo is crested on the leather head restraints as well as on the outside of the doors too.

We guess that's the advantage you have when you're a fashion designer - you can re-design your car to better suit your tastes.

A one-off MINI has been created and sponsored by the BMW Group for the legendary Life Ball for the last 11 years. The ball is Europe's biggest AIDS charity event.
