10.) Bugatti Veyron
9.) Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon
Modern Cadillacs in black are sinister looking automobiles. The CTS-V Wagon could work as Darth Vader's family hauler.

8.) Volkswagen Golf GTI
Black works well with red, and since the GTI has to have red stripes, black is the right paint option.
7.) Alfa Romeo 6C
This particular one is a 2500 SS, but black works on any Alfa Romeo 6C. Now go and watch The Godfather, again.

6.) Saab 99
Any Saab is a good Saab as long as it's black. Jet Black that is.
5.) Buick Grand National
There's a reason why these only came in black.
4.) Dodge Charger
The stripes on the trunk are exactly how much color this car needs.
3.) Mercury Marauder
Panthers run deep! Said best in black so probably the best color on that platform at least stock forms.
2.) Lincoln Continental
Hey Ford! This is a Lincoln!
1.) Buick Riviera
