Pink is popping up everywhere lately – especially with high-end automobiles. Why you would spend so much money on a car and then paint it like a bottle of Pepto-Bismol is beyond us, but hey, it’s your money and if you’ve got it, you might as well spend it on making your ride look like the Barbie-mobile.
Take, for example, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce pictured above. It can pump out 670-hp from its 6.5-liter V12 engine, but outfitted in pink, it loses a lot of street cred. You might as well throw some Hello Kitty decals on the front hood – this fine automobile has been effectively neutered.
Worse still, there’s this Audi R8, which goes to show that you can drop $130,000 on a vehicle and still look pretty ridiculous behind the wheel. Poor car – it never stood a chance. And you know that all the other cars on the road are laughing at this garish R8 behind its back and won’t let it join in on any of their road racing games. We have to wonder… would anyone even bother stealing this pink abomination?
Let’s just hope these are wraps, because we have to think the decision making process here was about the same as tattooing your girlfriend’s name on your arm, when you’ve only been dating for a week.
