Rock on! Mini dresses up cars to look like KISS

By Chris Woodyard, USA TODAY

If you're a really big fan of the glam band Kiss, this is your car. Mini is dressing up four of its iconic Countryman crossovers to look like the 1970s rockers.

The four are being sold on eBay with the proceeds going to the children's' charity UNICEF. Each car will be given the face-paint look of one band member but will be signed by the whole band. That's the Gene Simmons-inspired car in the photo, above.

You may recall that Kiss made a splashy impression in April at the New York auto show as part of a Mini presentation. Three out of four Kiss musicians showed up, and Mini USA's chief was painted as if he were a member of the band.

In addition to the auction, Mini USA is selling vehicle wraps featuring the Kiss-inspired designs, initially revealed at the New York auto show. Proceeds from the sales of the vehicle wraps will also be donated to UNICEF.

ON THIS DAY IN TORY 2009
KISSONLINE.com
On this day in KISStory - May 20, 2009, KISS rocked over 25 million Americans with Detroit Rock City and Rock and Roll All Night as the band was front-and-center on the American Idol finale show performing with runner-up Adam Lambert.

- KISS was just about the best thing on Idol ALL SEASON LONG. - Rolling Stone

- a jaw-dropping, fist-pumping, pyro-enhanced performance with legendary rockers KISS. - MTV

- KISS Blow Up American Idol. Now that's the way to rock the house! - Associated Content

- It was a night to remember for all those members (including me) of the KISS Army. - WBAL Radio

- Carlos Santana had the unenviable task of following the act. He strummed out some of his famous licks, which felt very slow-paced after the unbelievable energy KISS brought to the theatre. I was actually screaming to see more KISS by this point. - TV Envy
