MINI has shacked up with Franca Sozzani, Editor of Italian VOGUE to create a special one-off version of the MINI Roadster. The model was presented at the 20th annual Life Ball event in Vienna and was auctioned to raise €54,000 for AIDS charity.

The model comes with Deepest Purple matt livery with two gold hallmark MINI rally stripes. Both the exterior and interior have then been treated to floral decorative prints while the wheels and wing mirrors get painted in gold to match the Roadster's style.

The engine from the MINI Cooper S Roadster is used in this special edition and has been left in factory status with 184 PS (135 kW / 181 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque.

The style may not hit the right note with the majority of auto enthusiasts but Antonia Banderas appear to be pretty happy with it. Look through the attached pictures to see.
