Unique Mini designed for charity

Car manufacturer Mini and fashion photographer Mario Testino have collaborated to create a unique vehicle to raise funds for charity.

The creation was unveiled at the 15th Life Ball celebration in Vienna, Europe’s largest charity event in the fight against HIV and Aids.

Mr Testino wowed a crowd of 40,000 people gathered outside the Austrian capital’s Hotel Imperial when he arrived in the Mini, which is decorated by images of exploding fireworks.

Commenting on his decision for the design, the photographer said: "I feel that fireworks are a celebration of life.

"By choosing the fireworks theme I wanted to convey a positive message as work against Aids underlines that life is worth fighting for."

The unique Mini is now up for auction on eBay and fans of the brand can bid for the car until June 10th. All proceeds from the sale of the car will go to the charity, which received support at this year’s ball from Hollywood stars such as Sharon Stone and Adam Brody.
