It will be unveiled on May 25 in the Austrian capital.

The car manufacturer and Roberto Cavalli will present a MINI Paceman with a unique design. The designer has described the process of turning his design talents to a car as both exciting and invigorating.

It has become a tradition for MINI to present a one-off at the Life Ball, which is then sold at auction. In previous years, Agent Provocateur, Donatella Versace and Gianfranco Ferré have also customized MINI cars.

The theme of the 2013 Life Ball 2013 will be “Arabian Nights”. — AFP/Relaxnews
