pointing to <a/the> green car

Hi, everyone!
I insist that 'a'should be used in stead of 'the' in this situation, because the item is mentioned first time in the text.

The context is: Bill are buying toy cars. “Do you like this one?” Monica asks Mike holding a red toy car. “No, I don’t. I like that green one,” Mike says to Monica, pointing to a/the green toy car.

What's your opnion?
