Interesting thread.

Two unique (quirky) colours. I liked the one on the Ignis as I used to use the same color ink (Chelpark brand) in my school days.

1. Grand i10



2. Ignis

Does anyone remember these chicks!!

The Mitsubishi Lancer back in those days was an eye candy in those smashing red and yellow colours.

I personally also loved the spoiler which was standard on the SFXi variant.

One colour that comes to my mind is this:-

Don't know if it was a factory paint or not but had seen quite a few Swifts in this shade. This would really stand out of the crowd.

Surprising no one mentioned Sumo Grande. This peculiar car came with some peculiar colours

Perhaps the first SUV to come in bright orange shade.


PS: Flash red of polo is an unusual colour? Seriously?!

How can we forget Indica Vista facelift which came in yellow as a promotional color. Looked hideous. However Manza Elan with purple colour was nice to look at.

My Entry:
Autumn Orange Baleno. This colour has a love and hate relationship with many, but I personally like this one. Maruti has a habbit of bringing this colour in many cars and then discontinues it due to less sales.

In my mind, if I think about unique colors, the car that started it was Zen.

I really loved this Blue color in the Zen back in the day. Although for some reason I had in my mind that it was called ultra marine.

How can one forget the Aqua Green Colour Maruti was offering from 1996 to 1999.

It was usually offered in DX trim in the Maruti 800 and VX trim in others models.They use to charge INR 10,000/- for the colour and waiting was like 2-3 months.

And the Purple and Green Chevy Tevera.
