    Red for a Ferrari.
    White for a Corvette Stingray (especially if you're a Numanoid).

    The wife already has a blue car and is always dawdling at the back, so that's the full set.

    My slow car is red, but it isn't that slow, an Alfa with a little cloverleaf on it

    The quick one is group 4 rally livery, so all the colours

    If the only options are red or white, I'll take the bus.

    Re: Red or White?

    Whichever doesn't involve shelling out extra for the option.

    But it also depends on the styling - some cars seem to take one colour better than another.

    Red and white are supposed to be safer as they supposedly have better visibility, however white cars tend to show dirt more, so on that basis I'd go for red,

    Re: Red or White?

    To get me driving a white car, somebody would have to give it to me, because there's no circumstances in which I'd buy one.

    Red? Possibly, depending on car but for almost anything, nope.

    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    A 355 spider would look good in pretty much any colour.

    Except white obviously. As it's not a van.
