In the early days of the auto industry, black was often associated with the Model T and Henry Ford’s attempt to save money by adopting standardized production methods. Several decades later, black was found on official vehicles used by miscellaneous government agencies around the world because it’s a low-key color that doesn’t immediately stand out the way brighter colors do.
More recently, black has become a popular color among sports car buyers seeking an understated, low-key look. Modern paint techniques make it possible to obtain a nearly endless variety of shades including flat, clearcoated, metallic and so forth.
