Sadly we only have one picture of this Pink sportsmachine, so here is our Famous China-Nissan GT-R Collection™: shiny purple, very red, bananamatte-black, purple-whiteBrilliance, matte black, gold, Lambo-doors, matte-mint green, shiny purplepink, on bicycle lane, red & blacksilver pirate, pink&black, orange, Lioncelgreen-blue-pink, gold, lime-green, and police.
