The Pink Cabriolet is a vehicle in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is Amy Rose's personal racing vehicle for racing competitions.

Description

In Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, the Pink Cabriolet looks like a pink Volkswagen Beetle, with prominent headlights and ear-like mirrors. The front of the Pink Cabriolet is adorned with a decal of two hearts with her name written across them, and the back with a spare tire also decorated with two hearts. The license plate at the front reads AMY-ROSE.

In Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, the Pink Cabriolet has three distinct appearances that depend on its mode:

  • Car mode: The Pink Cabriolet's car form takes on a more sleek, modern design compared to its previous incarnation. Its windshield is higher and wider, its color scheme is more uniform, and a single pale racing stripe runs up the front of the car. Its headlamps are now decorated with eyelashes and the license plate now reads AMY-01. It also contains speakers on both sides of Amy's seat.
  • Plane mode: In its plane form, the Pink Cabriolet's wheels flip out horizontally to keep it hovering. A pair of eyelids also appear over the top half of the headlamps in this form.
  • Boat mode: In its boat form, the front and sides of the vehicle inflate to create a shape similar to that of a hovercraft, complete with two propeller fans at the back. In this form, the headlamps have been covered completely by eyelids.

In Team Sonic Racing, the Pink Cabriolet has been remodeled and redesigned, losing the Volkswagen Beetle-like appearance and now more closely resembling a convertible Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. It now has pink and white colors, no registration number, and the windshield is slightly shortened. The front lights are also now more stylized eye shapes and do not have "eyelashes". The vehicle has also become even smoother.

During the events of the game, the Pink Cabriolet was one of the cars Dodon Pa gave Amy and her friends so they could compete in his Grand Prix competition. Amy would afterward used it during the races and challenges she participated it.
