I've seen the future and it's grey...

Or at least in terms of vehicle colours, apparently (registration required)

"From a global perspective, overall colour popularity is beginning to shift from silver to an increased interest in grey".

Not for the first time, it is Latin Americans leading a cultural shift: "Grey [was second] in Mexico, with 15 percent and [third in] Brazil with 15%".

Not very Carmen Miranda, is it?

On the off chance it had passed anyone by, black and silver are the most popular in Europe, DuPont not deigning to to go a greater degree of detail in its breakdown.

Whatever became of 'Ford Capri orange and Volkswagen yellow and gold', eh?

Clearly financial considerations - or political correctness - are coming into play. As the man said: You can have any colour you want as long as it's black. Never had one myself though. Over the years my cars have been repectively light blue, brilliant green, metallic turquoise, white, dark orange, dark blue (twice), metallic gold, and now a version of silver grey.
