According to figures released earlier this year, grey was the UK's favourite colour for new cars in 2018, having overtaken black to reach top spot. In fact, grey and black cars now adorn more than 40 percent of all new cars sold in the UK. How dull. Is that really the best we can do?

It isn't even as though manufacturers aren't producing some snazzy paint jobs for us to choose from. Mazda's Soul Red Crystal will always be a favourite, and brands including BMW and Toyota, have released exciting new paint jobs of late. Each one of these unique colours offers customers an escape from the ordinary. Whether you want an Indy Yellow NSX or a Frozen Blue Taycan 4S, there's no shortage of exciting hues to choose from. These are just some of our favourites, in no particular order.
