The Modfather’s Mini

Well, it’s not actually his.

Paul Weller, an avid Mini fan and collector, has teamed up with the brand to design the exterior of a one-of-a-kind set of wheels to be auctioned off for charity.

Mini meets Modfather

The car shows off its mod stripes – literally – in a flurry of pink and brown. Weller says he was inspired by a Ben Sherman shirt he loved a few years back.

As you lean into the light...

Come to my side child
don`t leave me alone
stay with me darling
I can`t face this on my own.
I need you to be with me
I need you in life
I want to forever
be yours and you`ll be mine
oh child
cos` we`re going places
never thought we could
through all kinds of changes
but still our hearts beat closer more and more.
More than just a heart beat
from the city floor
more than just the bright lights
that lend me to your distant shore.
I`m keeping my head up
and out of the sand
way `cross the rooftops
I`m gonna plan our escape
oh child
we`re going places
never dreamt we could
through all kinds of changes
but still our hearts beat closer more and more
