Pink Car Princess Kitty Mitsubishi Hello Kitty

Move over Miss Piggy and Penelope Pitstop!
Hello Kitty has entered the new age embracing technology in this Miss Kitty themed gem.
The limited edition (and I use the word limited advisedly) Mitsubishi Hello Kitty car reminds us that subtlety is an artform.
Just when you thought Hello Kitty had exploited their licensing rights with just about every commodity manufacturer known on the planet, here we have a knock out car that would make Walt Disney envious. This little gem was spawned out of a beautiful partnership between Mitsubishi and Sanrio. What a synergy.
Ice powder pink coated wheels, manic hello kitty logos and graphics splashed florridly, but tastefully across doors, the roof, and even the rear vision mirror, perfect the look.
The interior seats are clothed in decadent pink and white stripes boasting the ..you guessed it…hello kitty logo. No second prizes.
There is even more to get your head around…headrests formed in the image of Hello Kitty’s head, complete with ear and pink ribbon!!
Before you get too excited, this 2WD, 660cc turbocharged MIVEC three cylinder was offered on a one off basis at the Mitsukoshi Department Store, the lucky buyer having to pre-register for the opportunity to own this prized possession.
It has already sold with the proceeds going partly to UNICEF.
If you happen to see it driving around the streets, snap it up for me, on camera of course.
With the number of hello kitty accessories on the market, it isn’t inconceivable that we could see some clones. For those contemplating embarking on such a grandiose project, watch out for the trade mark police.
Tread carefully….I mean surely the idea of just putting pink hub caps on your tyres wouldn’t be stealing a la grand auto theft, but one never knows.
We could always get Barbie (uncensored) on PinkCarAuction to get her views on pink cars, trade mark and other global issues. Imagine that. An exclusive with Barbie when she gets back from her next space expedition of course. She could come in the corporate Barbie-mobile or we could get ‘Pink Car Ladies at your service’ to chauffeur her here.
The rumour mill suggests Penelope has re-invented herself and is under the knife again..more later…
