Ten Cars That Look Best In Black

Black is a tricky color for a car. Done wrong it makes a car look cheap. Done right it makes them look sleeker, more elegant and more aggressive all at the same time. These ten cars wear the darkness spectacularly.

10.) Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti's custom options list is endless, and you can even get your Veyron layered with porcelain if you want, but that's a bit over the top, isn't it? Black is classy.

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.

3.) Mercury Marauder


Panthers run deep! Said best in black so probably the best color on that platform at least stock forms.
