Favourite GT colours

In order, select the most sexy GT colours. State why you would choose or chose the colour that you did.

Silhouette - The most awesome colour of all. Looks great with grey stripes. Didn't buy this colour because i wanted to avoid daily washing. Especially with water restrictions in play.
Blood Orange - Very very nice. Too many of them around unfortunately.
Blueprint - Very very nice. Too many of them around unfortunately.
Vixen - WOW, Wicked colour. Unfortunately, Reds fade too easily. My EFII XR6 started looking really old after 5 years in the sun with this colour.
Mercury Silver - Good colour all round. Easy to keep clean and not every man and his dog drives one. I went for this one.
Acid Rush - I really like this colour but i just wasn't completely sold on it. My second choice.
Winter White - Boring but nice with the blue stripes. Someone else down the road drives this colour. I just couldn't do it for that reason.
Citric acid - Vomit, although it is growing on me a little.
Lightning Strike - Love the colour but hate the stripes. And i have to have stripes.
Blue Pearl - Navy blue is not cool.
Phantom - This colour does nothing for me. The orange stripes are hidious too.


Merc Silver GT-P. Auto, Leather and Premium Sound.
Blueprint XR6 Turbo. Auto, Premium Sound.

I have to disagree on a couple.
IMO Mercury silver is one of the most frequent colours I see...and most of them are the lesser models (XT, Futura etc.) It does absolutely nothing for me, probably because it is way too dark for a silver.
Acid Rush is the vomit colour. A Baby poo brown car isn't something I would like to drive around in. The fact that it is available on all models also cheapens it.
Citric Acid would be my second favourite colour (behind Blood Orange)...probably because it is a bright, out there colour. Highlighter yellow will get you noticed!
Lightning Strike is the best silver I have come across. Being brighter means it looks less gloomy and I personally love the orange stripes to go with it. Good move bringing this colour in.

But all in all it comes down to personal preference so each to their own I say.

Re: Favourite GT colours

Speaking of Lightning Strike, there was a guy at the FPV/Bowe Drive day at Calder on the 17th with one that colour and when he was doing the Motorkana must have made the biggest tyre smoke cloud I've ever seen. He just sat there spinning. It was AWESOME! That alone will always make me smile when I see one that colour.
