The seven Very Pink Cars Listed for Sale on Autotrader
No matter what you’re considering for your next car — no matter what vehicle type, manufacturer, model, trim level or price point — I can almost surely promise you one thing: You aren’t looking for a pink car. Nobody is. And yet, there are a few very, very pink vehicles presently listed for sale on Autotrader for the few people out there who are interested in going a little crazy with their next vehicle — and, specifically, going pink.
Ever wonder what happens to the Mary Kay cars once they’re done serving their reps? Well, evidently, they find their way to Autotrader. For the uninitiated, cosmetics line Mary Kay provides vehicles to their top-performing sales representatives across the country — vehicles usually painted in a specific shade of pink, like this one. In fact, not only is this two thousand fourteen Cadillac SRX finished in “Mary Kay Pink,” but it still retains the Mary Kay logos on the door. It’s available with 78,000 miles at Mercedes-Benz of Fort Washington, in the Philadelphia suburbs, for $21,982.
This one thousand nine hundred eighty four Chevy Corvette certainly didn’t leave the factory in pink — but it’s pink now, and it’s presently suggested by J & S Auto Sales in rural Fremont, Nebraska, near Omaha, for $7,950. Given that the front bumper cover has a breast cancer ribbon on it, this Corvette was likely painted pink in a breast cancer charity tie-in — but if that’s the case, the listing doesn’t announce it. Instead, it mentions that the car runs on “gasoline fuel” and has “seats.” I also suspect it turns a lot of goes — especially in rural Nebraska.
This two thousand eight Chevy Corvette is unusual for several reasons. One is evident: It’s bright pink, which isn’t something you usually see on Corvettes (except for, well, the other Corvette we have listed right above it). It’s also traveled a whopping 190,000 miles, which might be even more unusual than the color: Corvettes are typically used as 2nd cars or weekend cars, with mileage added sparingly — and this one was driven daily and driven a lot. Ultimately, it’s a one-owner car, meaning it’s been driven by the same person for a decade — and all 190,000 of those miles. It’s suggested by a private seller in Los Angeles for $28,000 — and the listing claims it’s been “drooled over by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and James Franco.”
Perhaps the most unusual pink vehicle on this entire list is this one: a two thousand seventeen GMC Sierra SLT Team Cab, brand fresh and suggested by Dennis Dillon Auto Park in Boise, Idaho, for $48,940 — a slight discount over its original MSRP of $50,505. The unusual part is that this vehicle’s pinkness isn’t truly explained: It’s a pickup, which isn’t exactly a vehicle you’d expect to be painted pink, and it’s a downright fresh car, which means it most likely wasn’t done as a special order by a customer — unless that customer ordered delivery and then backed out. Either way, if you’re interested in a fresh pink pickup, here’s your chance.
Here’s a car you undoubtedly don’t expect to see painted pink: It’s a two thousand four Mercedes-Benz SL500, and it’s suggested with 80,000 miles by Whitt’s Auto Sales in Houston for $16,500. Suggested with upgraded wheels from a later SL model, it emerges this car was actually painted pink, and not packaged — and the Carfax report helps us pinpoint exactly when it happened: The car color was noted as crimson until March two thousand eleven and pink by March 2012. Interestingly, this car has had seven owners — but the last holder (the one who painted it pink, evidently) has kept it for more than five years. Very likely because it’s one of the only pink SLs in existence.
Pink is an especially unusual color for a full-size SUV since, well, it’s a lot of vehicle to paint pink. This particular Nissan Armada is proof of that, as it emerges the possessor who painted it pink determined to stop half way — so the pink only covers part of the vehicle (and it also comes to an unusual V form in the back). The result is that this Armada has a tremendously distinctive color scheme for drivers reeeeeally looking to stand out. It’s suggested by A Plus Motors in Oklahoma City with 130,000 miles for $9,950.
If you’ve ever desired to own the most head-turning Volkswagen Beetle on the market, this is very likely your best bet. Here’s a two thousand fifteen Beetle that’s not only painted pink, but covered with a series of purple flower decals on the front and rear fenders. The best part about this Beetle is the fact that, even however it likely wasn’t painted pink from the factory, it’s suggested with Volkswagen’s certified pre-owned warranty — meaning you get a discounted Beetle with a factory warranty and a pink exterior (if, ya know, that’s your thing). This pink Beetle is available with 30,100 miles from Luther Burnsville Volkswagen in the Minneapolis suburb of Burnsville, Minnesota, for $15,475.
