Life is Too Short for Boring Colors on a Supercar!April 13th, 2016
Many people, when they purchase their first Ferrari, opt for the red exterior color with the tan leather interior. Why? Because it’s a classic Ferrari color and it’s the color everyone wants. And since many Ferrari buyers don’t actually drive their cars, but look at them as investments, getting the most popular color makes sense. But I’m here to beg you, for the love of all things holy, please stop getting supercars in boring, safe colors!
Stop it. We only exist as living human beings for a little while on this planet. In the coming decades we’re going to face tougher emissions standards, autonomous cars, and the possible extinction of the automobile itself. That’s going to suck for those of us who are enthusiasts.
The Ford GT configurator just went online, and fans around the world are building their favorite color combinations on a car they’ll never be able to purchase. But the people who can buy one of these performance beasts are probably considering the good, safe colors. “The Ford GT will be worth something,” they’ll say. “The last Ford GT is the only car made in this millennium that’s gained value,” they’ll argue.
And they’ll be right.
But seriously, with a car that looks as fantastic as the Ford GT, don’t worry about resale value. Don’t worry about racking up miles and depreciation. Buy the car. Buy the car in a ridiculous color, and drive the pants off of it. Do it for all the automotive enthusiasts around the world who’ll never experience such an awesome car. Do it for yourself, because you’ll enjoy the car even more.
Please, just do it.
