Default Re: What car in which colour?

Of recent, I have taken a liking for brown colored Cars & manufacturers are launching one as well. Storme/Scorpio/Duster - They all look amazing in brown.

No white colored Car now, it is becoming a bit too common for my liking.

Question What is it that makes a colour look good on a particular car?

Hello T BHPians!

I was wondering what makes a particular colour look good on a specific car and the same colour to look bad on the other car?

What makes a white colour look good on almost 100% of cars irrespective of their size, body type etc?

Why same colour looks good on a hatch and looks bad on a sedan based on that hatch? For ex. Brio looks too good in Red; then why not Amaze in Red? Amaze in Red is not available.

Why a peculiar colour looks good on a specific car only? Like Summer Sparkle shade on Vista; Bright Yellow on Figo.

Even if we take cars from same class; except white/silver no common colour is available. Even if it's black, blue; there are different shades like chill, mist, dark etc.

How the car manufacturer's take decisions on regular colour and off colours like yellow, chocolate brown, orange?

Is there any scientific study/theory available to decide on the colour of the car based on it's form, shape, size etc?

Car manufacturers purely take these decisions based on scale of economy or something else?

Sorry for asking too many questions

One in every two cars sold in india is painted white

My cars so far were all white colored, to break the trend the next will be either Toffee brown or Night Blue!

India's famed love affair with colours that are bright and loud fades away when its citizens make the choice while buying their cars. Indians seem to prefer lighter colours for their machines, with one in every two cars sold in the country painted in white and over a quarter of the buyers opting silver or gray shades.

I love the Melbourne Red. You should consider that colour as well. From your two choices, I'd go with imperial blue any day.
