This weekend I was reading a review of the 2011 Toyota Camry (link) and before the review even began a comment came up about why Toyota called the colour of the tester Sandy Beach Metallic. Why not beige?
Well that got me thinking, what are some of the more interesting exterior paint colour names on the market today?
Some examples after the jump.
- Sandy Beach Metallic: Toyota Camry
- Blue sensation Pearl: Honda Fit
- Airstream: Nissan Murano
- Nordschleife Grey, Tsukuba Red: Hyundai Genesis:
- Blue jeans Pearl: Kia Sorento
- Olive Grey: Kia Rio
- Detonator Yellow Clearcoat: Jeep Wrangler
- Cognac Metallic: Porsche Panamera ($4,200 option)
- Truffle Mica: Lexus IS250
- Magic Blue: Volvo XC90
- Anaconda Green Pearlcoat: Dodge Viper
- Toxic orange pearlcoat: Dodge Viper
- Thunder Gray ChromaFlair: Cadillac CTS-V
And my personal favourite name:
- Black: Chevrolet Camaro
