MX-5ND "Ceramic"

That looks incredibly similar to the 'Dove Grey' on the MG. Works just as well too!

Alfa Romeo Nuvola blue, a pale blue with a pearlescent gold colour over it. Looking for a photo, it must be awkward to photograph and get the true colour. Some pictures look silver, some just look like blue and don't show the pearlescent, some really do.



So here's a picture of it looking silverish, sorry hehe .

From all the posts so far it seems any colour as long as it's not grey or silver. Who is buying the damn things then?

Back to the question at hand - red, or some variation on this gets my vote - a full 50% of my cars having been red. Top of the tree is either Alfa Rosso AR501, or my current 370z in Magma Red (or brown as someone on here labelled it):

BMW Techno Violet for me, too bad they don't offer it any more.

They do if you go down the BMW Individual route.

Spirit Blue on the Fiesta ST Mk 7.
The Mk 6 ST had a similar blue.

Then the Mk 8 had no decent colours at all and off my list it went. Not that the styling hadn',t gone to pot too...

Another vote for blue.
Lovely, but I might be biased as I owned that car from May 2016 until February 2020 (and it was Montego Blue with Pearl Grey leather). rolleyes



Although for a while I also had an E46 Compact 325ti Sport in Imola Red 2 as a daily - .

I remember quite a lot of purple cars in the early seventies. My scout leader had a purple Triumph spitfire - loved it!

I knew a lad years ago with a fully Max Power'd Corsa B that was painted in Nuvola Pearl - lovely colour in the right light

I believe it's been discontinued for a while now even via the Individual program, due to it being a lead based paint.

Think the closet you can get is Venitian Velvet although not seen it in the flesh .

I'm in the blue camp, in particular Mazda's innocent blue.
