  • What color will you choose?

    1 BLACK (20.3%) Black is said to be the ultimate power colour and an indicator of style and elegance. Wright says: “If you drive a black car people tend to take you seriously. Black is not emotional or chummy but is very sensible. People with black cars are confident and not trying to impress anybody. It is also a protecting colour that engulfs you in darkness and makes you feel safe.”

    2 GREY (19.7%) Chosen by cautious people who want to blend into the background, grey is often the choice of the more mature driver who has nothing to prove. “Grey is a bit depressing and gloomy,” says Wright. “We instinctively reach for grey when times are hard.”


    3 WHITE (19.0%) The owners of white cars are fastidious and hard to please. They like everything to be clean and in its place but they are not big on emotions. “White is an uncompromising shade with no soft nuances,” says Wright. “The person driving a white car is putting up barriers and sending the message, ‘Don’t come too close.’ A white car might indicate someone trying to hide their personality.”

    4 BLUE (16.0%) The drivers of these cars are said to be reliable and trustworthy. “Blue makes you think of the sea and clear skies, which is probably why everyone loves this colour,” says Wright. “On cars it is the choice of people who are quiet and very wary of all the hysteria around them. “Blue is not an emotional colour. It is for people who are intellectual, sensible and like to think things through.”

    5 SILVER (10.0%) Silver cars are driven by people who want to look cool and give an impression of wealth. People who are drawn to grey cars often decide on silver in the end, to stand out ever so slightly. “Silver is quite a neutral colour,” says Wright. “A bit like grey but with a bit more sparkle, so driven by someone who is more fun but not very extrovert. A silver car shows a nice, ordinary person who wants a little glamour in their lives but nothing too excessive.”

    6 RED (9.9%) Red cars are not for the timid and chosen by those who are flamboyant, have a zest for life and like to stand out from the crowd, which may explain why it is the colour of every boy racer’s dream car: the Ferrari. “Red is a stimulating colour, which sets the pulse racing and raises the blood pressure,” says Wright. “A red car can be associated with being exhilarating and exciting but also with being aggressive and demanding. “It is very much a male colour and an expression of physical strength but not particularly subtle. You associate red cars with strong, outgoing people who can be a bit bossy.”

    7 GREEN (1.1%) With its associations with nature, green signals an owner who is well-balanced. They are traditional in their outlook and don’t care about fads. “Green is a very reassuring colour, which is in the middle of the colour spectrum,” says Wright. “People who drive green cars are looking for a peaceful life.”

    8 ORANGE (0.8%) The drivers of orange cars have a sunny disposition and are most likely to be up for a laugh. They need to be because the resale value of orange cars is among the lowest. “Orange is the most fun colour for a car,” says Wright. “It signifies playfulness.”

    9 BRONZE (0.5%) Like other variations, including brown and beige, the owners of bronze cars are thrifty and sensible. They prefer cars that are reliable and will last rather than bristling with gadgets. “Bronze is essentially a warm brown,” says Wright. “In itself it can be rather a dreary colour but with these modern metallic finishes bronze cars have more sparkle.”

    10 YELLOW (0.4%) Owners of yellow cars are young or young at heart and have a good sense of humour. Perhaps this explains why it is the colour of the Fiat Cinquecento in youth sitcom The Inbetweeners. “Yellow is the colour of the ego, optimism and self-confidence,” says Wright. “It is the car colour of lively, fun people who want to be seen and don’t really care what others think.”



    And does the description fit?

    Good grief, can we try for Pop Psychology generalizations any harder?

    Amongst other issues, Angela Wright completely ignores how people with different cultural backgrounds respond to colors differently.

        You should put a poll up with all 12 colors. Now that folks have seen most of the colors in photos it would be interesting to see what colors people are going with. For me it's RED all the way. I love the Rapid Blue as well but since I can only have one C8 it will be Red. LOL.

            Here I thought I liked white cars because they hide minor flaws and clean up brand new. Plus it's easier to see tar specks.

              I am presently thinking 2LT Z51 convertible.

              My first Corvette in 1966 was a red one. Too much law enforcement attention to a then 19 year old. I now like dark metallic colors, for more of a Bat-mobile look.

              I changed my color choice four times before I ordered by C7. Ultimately went with Night Race Blue.

              This time, my present thinking is Shadow Gray with an Adrenaline Red interior.

                  I am going for “Arrest me Red”. There is just something about a Red Supercar.

                      Unfortunately I think red will flood the market, but my favorite is the rapid blue

                        Dang, I'd better not buy a white one then.

                        I buy what I think looks good on a specific car. Some cars look good in red, some don't. Ditto for every other color.

                        Right now I'm leaning towards white or Torch Red for a C8, but since I'm not planning on buying year one I'll wait until I have a chance to see some in various colors.

                          So does that mean my personality changed every time I bought a different color car? Lol. I have had red, white, black, silver and gold cars. I must have multiple personalities. Can anyone suggest a good psychiatrist? 😄

                            I want to formally apologize for ruining the analysis. The above comment would not apply if they saw my garage and I'm the most passionate old DAGO on earth, not short on emotions.
