    2014 CTS in Mary Kay pink

    While speculation, and finding that this isn't published as an available color, my girlfriend and I stopped and took photos of this 2014 CTS in a holding lot by Lansing Grand River, which I can only suspect as being a rare Mary Kay sales award car



    It's a subtle pink and doesn't look that bad actually. There were quite a number of pink CTS' in this lot

    Mary Kay cars from what I understand are always base model leased cars that are sent back to GM for a full repaint when the lease is up. I think the color looks quite good though.

    but, as I understand it, the vehicle can be bought at the end of the lease, which is why they sometimes show up on ebay or craigs

    I thought that no matter what the cars had to be sent back to GM and be painted a shade of white before being resold. I think a few do slip out from time to time but I don't think they are supposed to.

    I always thought the Mary Kay pink color reminded me of cherry blossoms. Lovely color, just maybe not on a car.

    Actually, they just need to be sanded an re-cleared, for the last couple of years, the MK pink has all been in the clearcoat from what I understand, its a pearl base with a tinted pink clearcoat, similar to the millennium yellow on the Corvette.

    This makes sense. From what I was originally told you could not buy a MK car because they licensed the color to Cadillac and they require all the cars to be white once they are turned back in. However I also read a few cars slip by and can be bought in pink.

    Maybe, but I doubt Johnny Cash would "...pick one up, a piece-at-a-time..." in that colour (wink,wink)!
