Weller, weller, weller, what have we here?

Paul Weller has designed a Mini Cooper with rather fetching stripes on it, to help raise money for two charities.

The chosen charities are War Child and Nordoff Robbins and both help young or vulnerable people in conflict-ridden countries.

The Mini alone would cost £15,000 but with all the extras (such as heated seats) added by Weller, which cost £4,000, the car should cost a small fortune – did I mention it was designed by Paul Weller?

I hope whoever buys it finds some very cheap car insurance after having spent so much money on the vehicle itself!

As well as the automobile’s connection to a music legend boosting up the price, the bodywork was hand-painted by Mini craftsmen – that’s craftsmen employed by Mini, not tiny workmen.

Paul Weller’s Mini creation is meant to reflect “the mood and colours associated with the mod era”, said the man himself.

An auction is taking place online, on a special website, and bidding for the funky little vehicle will end on December 11th. Someone will have a big Mini surprise on Christmas morning, maybe?

If you want to see the car, it’s on show in the BMW Park Lane showrooms until it is sold, and if you fancy owning it then bid from the Paul Weller Mini Auction website.

Good luck!
