9. Matte Gray — Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Sometimes you don’t need a bright color to stand out. Subaru’s citrus-themed orange shines like the midday sun, but Hyundai has taken a subtler approach with its Veloster Turbo.

Buyers can opt for an oh-so-cool Matte Gray finish on this force-fed hatchback. The car can literally be slathered in lusterless paint that’s like non-reflective barbecue sauce dripping off a rack of baby-back ribs. This finish gives the adventurous Veloster an almost custom look, like a factory-fresh rat rod.

Of course there’s a price to pay for being different and it goes beyond the $1,000 up-charge. Owners have to be extra careful to keep their cars looking dull and shine-less. Naturally waxes and polishes are off limits, as are automatic car washes. Yes, you’ve got to scrub it down by hand, lest the paint get buffed to a shine by the twirling appendages of an unrelenting machine. Other precautions are also strongly recommended.

    Too bad most folks will never give themslves permission to have such a vehicle. Time was it was a big deal to have a driver license and a car to drive. When you got around to having your own car you wanted something that got people to look. Then you dressed it up with nice wheels and anything else that made it stand out. Now people want to drive black/gray/white cars with big rims and dark glass and expect others to be impressed.
