Depends on the car actually. I prefer black for a sporty yet stealth look but like red, white, metallic blue ('vette blue) too.

Cool

Silver for easy maintaince
Black for Classy Look
Red if it is a sporty car !!!!

My Lancer is being painted RED with Black highlights. Out of my past 6 cars 4 were Silver & Two Black.....It all depends on which car it is !!

Have not voted as there are divergent views based on which car/which colour

Cheers

Its the same in India also - just look around at the cars in a parking lot or on the road - you would see a sea of white/silver/light color cars.

Just because many have voted for black, it does not mean that they will choose black when it comes to the actual buying stage. Sort of like Palio1.6 winning a poll here on the hottest hatch, but those who voted for it ending up buying Getz/Swift in real life (for reasons known to all).

Selecting a poll option does not cost anything, while selecting the color for the car which you are paying for is a serious decision.

I voted for black, a decision I stood by when I bought my car. But if there is going to be a 2nd car, it will be silky silver - maintenance is bloody difficult for a black car.

My preference is Champagne Gold, which is a warm silver.
Would prefer a satiny sheen to a glassy gloss.

The psychology of car-people worldwide indicates the following...

When a person goes through tough times and bad days, he looks for items to elevate his mood. That's when he's best tuned to buying a bright blue, red or yellow car.

When he's doing well and soaring on top of the world, he prefers a muted pastel silver. This can lean towards a cool bluish silver, aqua silver, champagne gold, even a purple-tinged silver --- but a silver nevertheless. Since 1998, the biggest story in automobile color has been the rise and absolute dominance of silver. Silver displaced white as the most preferred color in USA and Europe in 2000 and became the number one color, globally in 2001. Silver is elegant, loves futuristic looks and cool.

Ever heard of a red or black spaceship? as in Starship Enterprise....
No?
How about a silver one? There you go...

Among the extremely successful people worldwide, the most popular color is silver, second most popular color is metallic beige. And third comes medium metallic grey. Then come the also-rans.
