Sometimes its better to give than to receive.
To celebrate its 50th birthday, MINI revisited its younger years and created a Beatles' inspired MINI that will be donated to charity later.
This one-off 2009 MINI Cooper S is based on the 1966 model given to Beatles' guitarist George Harrison, who customized his car with yantras and Sanskrit mantras. The psychedelic car was later featured in The Beatles' film Magical Mystery Tour.
The reinterpreted MINI Cooper S was designed according to the wishes of Olivia Harrison, and she will accept the donation on behalf of Material World Charitable Foundation at MINI United --the car company's annal brand event-- which takes places on May 22-24 at Silverstone in the UK.The one-off custom MINI will be auctioned off later this year with proceeds benefiting the Foundation.
