I think there are quite a few cars that just don't seem to work when they are finished with white paint.

The Toyota IQ looks like the helmet of a storm trooper.
The VW Touareg just looks like a washing machine or massive domestic appliance.

Can you think of any other cars that should just never be made in white? Are there any cars that only look good in white (The Lotus Esprit is one for me that only looks right in white)?

When I bought my Picasso new, white was the only colour that was a no-cost option, nowadays it is the colour to have! Whenever you saw a white Picasso you would think tightarse! Some white MPVs look like private ambulances, only white vehicles I have ever owned was a Humber Sceptre with black vinyl roof, Ford Transit, Bedford CF350 and a V6 Calibra, which looked good. A work colleague has a new Passat in white and that does look good. The only ones that don't work are company cars as they are seldom clean!

Chris Evans famously has/had a white Ferrari collection & even had cars resprayed to match, I think he sold the bulk of them to finance his purchase of a 250 GTO.
I'm not a fan of white Ferrari's though, just seems wrong to me. :amuse:

" That's okay... We will just slip it into reverse and watch the miles just fall off!"

Never been a fan of white cars. It might be trendy at the moment but like jeans that are half way down your backside with the gusset at your knees, fashionable does not necessarily mean it looks good.

On our estate full of upwardly mobile keeping up with the joneses there are a great deal of white cars. They all just look like ex-police to me.
