MINI has released the first teaser image of the specially designed Paceman that will be auctioned off for Life Ball 2013.

This year's model was designed by Roberto Cavalli and features an iridescent exterior that "shimmers from black to brown depending on the incidence of light." Little else is known about the model but MINI says it has a stylish interior and Roberto Cavalli's logo on the roof.

According to Cavalli, "This MINI was an exciting and wonderful project for me. It gave me the opportunity to be creative and finally use something very special, which I have personally invented and already used for years for my own vehicles: it is a unique iridescent paint which changes color depending on the way the light illuminates the pigments."

The Cavalli-designed Paceman will be unveiled on May 24th, before being auctioned off in the Hall of Ceremonies at Vienna’s Hofburg palace on May 25th. All proceeds from the auction will go towards projects dedicated to fighting AIDS and HIV.
