MINI Cooper Red Mudder Teased Prior To Life Ball 2011 4
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Cooper, MINI, Red Mudder on 05 4th, 2011

You don’t have to wait till Life Ball 2011 opens, scheduled for May 21st at Vienna, for the first glimpse of MINI Cooper Red Mudder. We have for you the first teaser of the variant released by them. Have a look.


All set to make its debut at Life Ball 2011, the model comes up with a prominent front bumper, maple leaf decals, a roof rack and steel mesh trim on the rear windows. These features, coupled with the headlight guards and massive wheels with off-road tires, give it an overall rugged appearance.

In what could be seen as the uncompromising social commitment of the BMW group, they have made it clear that the car will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting projects that combat HIV / AIDS.

As you know, Life Ball is the biggest charity event in Europe supporting people with HIV or AIDS. The event is organized by the non-profit organization AIDS LIFE, which was founded in 1992 by Gery Keszler and Torgom Petrosian.  Let’s hope that the new DSQUARED creation turns out to be a hit.

The upcoming 2012 MINI Roadster model’s first spied snaps are out. This model looks like that of the MINI Roadster Concept debuted by the same manufacturer at the Frankfurt motor show in 2009. Hence it has got so little camouflage. But it sports some camo on the rear end.

The 2012 MINI Roadster prototype features a retractable rear spoiler. It also

comes equipped with a double-piped, center-mounted exhaust along with. The rear bumper grill has also got extra set of lights on it.

The front of the vehicle has got rounder lines than on the Cooper model. The windshield in particular, looks shorter and more sloped. It also appears to be curvier from A-pillar to A-pillar than on the Cooper.

However, we could not make out what exactly is the automaker trying to hide with that camouflage at the backside. The 2012 MINI Roadster will make its debut later this year.
