Five of the best color choices for every supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 14, 2016

A supercar is already a head-turning purchase but for those who love the limelight, that simply won’t suffice. Some people like to purchase lavish upgrades for their beloved four-wheeled super friends while there are some who want to maintain that inconspicuous superhero vibe that will catch onlookers offguard.

But the most simple but stunning way to show off your new supercar is to dress to impress – via a paint job that accentuates the sophistication of these five to six digit priced cars. It also has to be done so well that it doesn’t look less expensive than it actually is.

To help you choose the perfect color for your supercar, here’s a list of five of the most popular and coolest colors available that guarantee “attention.”

Napier Green - McLaren

Modesty is the best policy for most British automakers, regardless of whether you’re referring to common cars or luxury vehicles and maybe even supercars; but McLaren deviates from that stereotype when it released the newest hue for its McLaren 675LT.

Instead of the usual neutral colors, McLaren decided that the best way to capture attention is to cover the 675LT in Napier Green. And guess what? McLaren 675LT slays with the Napier Green hue.

Blu Cepheus - Lamborghini

If you’re the type who isn’t all about bright screaming colors, then you might consider this interesting hue care from Lamborghini -- the Blu Cepheus. The Italian automaker is an avid fan of the color wheel and we’ve seen its supercars in common colors like yellow, green and orage, and so the Blu Cepheus is a breath of fresh air.

Not only is it pleasing to the eyes, this intriguing shade screams “look at me” in a sea of neutral as well as primary and secondary colors.

Vegas Yellow - Audi

Several Ferraris have deviated from the norm of red and black by choosing a loud color like yellow. If attention is what you want, then yellow is definitely the color for you. Just like the Ferrari Giallo Modena, Nero Stellato and the special edition F12tdf and 458 Speciale Aperta, yellow looks good in almost every supercar including on an Audi R8 Spyder.

One of the few colors that go well with the R8 is the Vegas Yellow which the German automaker offers for a lower cost. Vegas Yellow is a nice contrast to the usual silver or jet black German car, isn’t it?

White - McLaren

White is simple but it could also make an awesome vehicle look bland. However, there are certain kinds of vehicles that would look good in this shade such as the Range Rover and expensive supercars like the McLaren P1 and the Ford GT. It’s like these vehicles were born (or made) to sport the color for purity.

White is a color that would appear awful on a bad quality vehicle and would look good and luxurious on good quality vehicles. Add on black or grey wheels or some fancy looking LED running lights, and you’re good to go with a white supercar.

Rosso Corsa - Ferrari

Last and definitely not the least is the color that effortlessly spells supercar. The vibrant color red has been mostly associated with Ferrari’s sports cars and stunning supercar lineup. It may seem cliché but let’s admit it, red is a classic color.

Almost 85% of Ferrari’s fleet have been sporting the color red and its most popular hue, the Rosso Corsa or “Ferrari Red”. Its vibrance as well as the classy vibe that this color exudes gives any supercar the authority on the road or in a race circuit. When we think supercar, red is a staple color that will never go out of style similar to how red lipsticks will always be around.
