MINI has teamed up with Canadian design duo Dean and Dan Caten to create The Red Mudder, a special rally-inspired version of the Cooper S.

Through their studio DSQUARED, the Caten brothers worked to create a special one-off vehicle for the Life Ball gala in Vienna, a charity event dedicated to fighting HIV and AIDS.

The Red Mudder is based on the three-door MINI Cooper S, riding on raised suspension and gaining chunky off-road tyres.

Other features include a front impact bar, rally lights and mesh-covered headlights, a roof rack, grille-covered side windows and a spare tyre at the rear.

Inside, the Red Mudder gets a compass, custom aluminium-sheeting floormats and DSQUARED logos throughout.

MINI and DSQUARED will auction off the Red Mudder, with all proceeds going to Aids Life.

Despite its rally styling, don't expect to see a three-door Cooper hitting the World Rally Championship. What you will see, however, is MINI's Countryman-based WRC car. Check it out here.
