The same week Paris Hilton was burgled out of nearly $2 million in jewelry from her Sherman Oaks, Calif., home, she's added a customized $200,000 Bentley Continental GT to her garage.

While it may look pink in photos, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that this British bit of heaven on wheels is actually rose-colored. It also has monogrammed seats, a sparkling "PH" where the usual hood ornament "B" is located and tinted windows – to thwart paparazzi, says the publicity-shy socialite.

"I love it, it's so pretty," Hilton – who reportedly created a splash with the car while shopping this week with the winner of her My New BFF reality show, Brittany Flickinger – is quoted as saying.

As for her choice of car and its color, "I think when you're a little girl and you have the Barbie Corvette you're like, 'I wish I had a car like this one'. So I think [it's] just being a fan of Barbie for so long," she says.

Adds Hilton, 27: "This is a car I can't drive every single day, but I will be driving it a lot. I live in a gated community so I can get in and out without the paparazzi. They've put a protective tint on the windows so no flashes can come through."
