The breast cancer side of the AIDS vs. breast cancer rumble is ratcheting it up a notch with this pink Nissan Micra. Nissan created 275 of these Pepto-Bismol-hued convertibles for the U.K. market, but only one comes with the coveted BAR8IE license plate. The car itself will set you back about $30,000, but the car with the plate is priced at an impressive — or impressively ridiculous — $70,000. Still, it's nice that $480 from each purchase (of either car) will go to Breakthrough Breast cancer, plus an undisclosed amount for the lucky girl (doll?) who ponies up for the license plate. This will be a hard act for Bono's Product Red to follow, given that red is as common a color for cars as pink is for cell phones. No word yet on whether pink will become the new black Stateside, but we're not holding our breath.
