Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

There’s one time each year when no grown man worries about walking around wearing or driving something pink and that is during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Even in the NFL, grown men are beating the hell out of each other rocking pink gloves, socks, or other random pink things.

Well, the equivalent of strapping in a pink mouthpiece in the automotive industry is tossing a coat of pink on your car. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, TopSpeed is checking out all of the pink cars we have seen in recent years and laying them out for you, top-10 style.

In this contest, we need to look into the dedication of the pink coloring (real or wrap), the overall car coolness factor, and, of course, its raw power. Fortunately for us, driving a pink supercar is nothing out of the ordinary, so we have tons of entrants to choose from. If we skipped one of your favorites, let us know in the comments section.

Click past the jump to start our top-10 countdown to the best pink car of 2012.

No. 10: 2006 Lamborghini Murcielago by Al & Eds’ Auto Sound

Lamborghini Murcielago by Al & Ed's Autosound and Lamborghini Club America

This one is near and dear to our hearts, as we actually had a nice long discussion with Andrew at Lamborghini Club America about this one. It made an appearance at the Concourso Italiano and then headed to a Gala in support of breast cancer awareness. Its 580 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque make this a mean pink machine, but the fact that it is only a wrap gives it a low dedication score, landing it in at No. 10 on our list.

No. 9: Pink Bugatti Veyron

Pink Bugatti Veyron

Not only is the Bugatti one of the ugliest sexy cars on Earth, but to paint it pink simply makes it ridiculous. Add in the especially “special” design on the fenders and doors, and you have No. 9 on our list. This creature sneaks into our list for several reasons. No. 1, it is a million dollar car in pink. No. 2, is extremely fast. No. 3, it takes serious dedication to do something like that. No style, just dedication.

No. 8: Pink Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

Pink Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

The Gallardo Superleggera , though outdated, is still one of our favorite Lambos. So paint it pink and we’ll take a little notice. This model was spotted in London in 2009 and it features a stout 530-horsepower V-10 engine and an extremely clean pink paint job. The cleanliness of its paintjob and lack of crazy styling gets it on our list, but its low style keeps it at No. 8.

No. 7: Pink Pagani Zonda

Pink Pagani Zonda

While this bad-ass Zonda may be donning a color that is a little bit off from the typical breast cancer awareness pink, it is still a shade of pink nonetheless. Plus, it’s a Pagani – freaking – Zonda, so it needs to be on the list. We’re not too sure what year this model is, but we do know that it’s sweet regardless. To take this God-only-knows-how-much-it-cost car and drape it in a nude tone of pink is simply gutsy. We approve! It comes in low just because the shade is not quite right

No. 6 Pink Bentley Continental GT

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

The Continental GT is a fairly important car, as it combines bulk, luxury, and speed all into one hell of a sleek package. To drape a coating of matte pink over top of it takes some serious gall, but whoever did it did so in a great way. It’s 4.8-second time to 60 mph and high luxury puts it high on our list, but its black hood and God-awful pink and purple interior drops it out of the top-5.

No. 5: Pink Ferrari 458 Italia

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

Ah, into the top-5 we go. The Ferrari Italia seen here was spotted in Dubai and we love the way the 458 Italia’s lines work that shade of pink. It’s almost like it was made to don this paint job. Its 562-horsepwoer, 4.5-liter V-8 engine and 3.4 seconds to 60 mph put it in a good spot. The only reason it isn’t any higher is only because the cars above it are cooler, rarer, and less often seen in pink.

No. 4 Pink Ferrari Enzo

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

The Ferrari Enzo is likely one of the most bad-ass Ferraris ever. So to see one rocking a hot pink paintjob is just crazy. At $659,330 brand new, we wonder if the owner had planned on painting this thing pink from the get go, or if it was a spur-of-the-moment deal. Regardless, this car is bound to suck in a lot of attention during Breast Cancer Awareness month, so we slotted it in at No. 4.

No. 3: Pink Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

There’s not too much known about this pink gullwing beauty , but its matte pink coat looks right in place on its sexy body. It’s 563-horsepower, 6.3-liter V-8 engine lets it rip off to 60 mph in only 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 197 mph. To boot, this is simply one of the sexiest Mercedes vehicles ever built. The only one we like more is the McLaren SLR . With this car coming in at No. 3, what could possibly beat it out?

No. 2: Hamann Hawk

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

Well, if we loved a pink SLS AMG, why wouldn’t we love a pink Hamann Hawk , which is essentially an SLS AMG all hopped up on loads of caffeine? With its 636-horsepower V-8, a 3.6-secon blitz to 60 mph, and a 199 mph top speed, the Hamann fits all of the requirements to be No. 1. It only comes in at No. 2 because its shade of pink just isn’t quite the shade we’re looking for. It’s still pink, just not the bright pink that we need.

No. 1: Donut King GT-R

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: TopSpeed's Top-10 Pink Cars of 2012

The GT-R and its 3.8-liter V-6 engine that cranks out 530 horsepower through all four wheels is always near the top of any performance car list. Add a coat of pink paint to the exterior of this awesome ride and you earn yourself a top spot on our list. The biggest factor was the fact that this car is not only stupid fast, but it also sees plenty of track time in Australia. Plus, it is driven by the CEO of a donut company – talk about an odd moonlighting job.

@brad: any money for the cause is good. even if it’s 5 bucks! and foiling a super car is more than that!!! the owner could state that he donated the money to the cause and advise people do that. that would make a difference!

with the money from one of the super cars they could make a better campaign!

@Midocar: what do you think of foiling the car for raising awareness? that would turn heads and get noticed!

a mate pink looks better, in my opinion. and even better looks donating the money to the breast cancer cause rather than spending it on a car!

i think the pink enzo is UGLY!!! that’s fuchsia rather than pink!

it would have been dedicated to breast cancer if any of the cars had the pink bow. but none of the cars have it...

i really love no. 10 and no.3. and where’s the dedication to breast cancer awareness in the donut king gt-r ?
