A limited run of Pippa Mann's new pink-and-white Susan G. Komen diecast model Indy cars is available for purchase at a variety of online retailers. Only 1,000 were made and more than a quarter of those are spoken for.
The diecast is a 1:18 model of the Verizon IndyCar Series car Mann drove for Dale Coyne Racing in the 2014 Indianapolis 500, the first race of her partnership with Komen, an international non-profit organization dedicated to ending breast cancer. Since then, Mann has become a spokesperson for the organization and used her Indianapolis 500 runs to raise money for Komen.
She raised more than $60,000 for the cause during the 2015 Indianapolis 500.
"We're getting interest both from people invested in the cause the car is championing," Mann said, "and from little girls who don't understand the message behind the car, but who love the pink car just for itself. Hopefully, we'll sell them out."
