Paul Weller MINI


The legendary mod rock legend Paul Weller teamed up with Mini to create a one-off kinda art car, which will be auctioned for charity.

This unique Mini is inspired by the Ben Sherman shirt Paul designed for the clothing brand some years ago, and is hand-painted by MINI craftsmen in Oxford.

The car, which is a 2009 MINI Cooper, with 17’’ Crown Spoke Alloys, black leather upholstery, Bluetooth, front heated seats, and Chili Pack,  goes under the hammer in a live online auction from 11 November to raise money for charities Nordoff Robins and War Child.

Paul Weller said: “I’ve always loved and driven MINIs  so when I was given the opportunity to design a bespoke Mini Cooper I wanted to create something that reflected the mood and colours associated with the Mod era, which was also the classic Mini’s hey day. I’d already expressed these colours in a shirt I designed for Ben Sherman a few years ago, so it made sense to me to continue the theme using a MINI Cooper as a palate.

The bidding starts on 11th November at www.paulwellerminiauction.com and will run for one month. The car will be on display in MINI’s flagship showroom on Park Lane, London for the duration of the auction.
