Pink Power 2: Nissan GT-R
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Topspeed is running down a list of the most attention-grabbing pink cars spotted anywhere in the world. After showing you the pink Audi R8, we know head to Australia to show the Donut King Nissan GT-R.
Outlandish colors for road cars are pretty rare, but when it comes to race cars, it seems that conservative colorways are thrown out the window in favor of the more eye-catching variety.
Take this Nissan GT-R as an example. Owned by Donut King CEO Tony Alford, this Nissan GT-R was entered during the 2008 Targa Tasmania rally crown where it went exhaust-to-exhaust with a bunch of supercars that were also entered in the competition.
In a field that included a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, a Porsche 911 GT2, and a Corvette Z06, it seemed like Alford had to come up with a way to make his GT-R stand out from the rest of the pack.
So he did what any self-respecting donut chain owner would do to a sports car: he colored it pink. If the GT-R’s colorway isn’t enough, Alford also took advantage of the free publicity by plastering his company’s logo all over the car. So much for subtlety, huh?
